Warrior Poet
He doesn't follow the bells of literary thought
there is no get along to go along
being the usual run of the mill writer
just doesn't cut it for what his mind sees
why do you think he goes radical with words
to play up to the hoi pelloi and cop out
and join the mainstream of twenty first century thought?!
guess again....
every time he writes, he has a vision
an epiphany
his words are his scripture his liturgy
the realm of the printed page is his temple
to take a ride with the everyday lexicon
to take form over substance just isn't down
he has to convey his madness to survive
and won't say how high when they say jump
his words make him what he is
one among many
an unconventional approach
fighting the dragon with a pen
a warrior....

Thank goodness for writers who value substance over form.

To dismiss a poem because of lack of 'proper form' misses the most important aspect of poetry in my opinion.

Amazing work as always.
