Welcome


I am a poet who has both been published and self published. All work on this blog is all copyright Alex Ness. While I make very little money from my work I am technically a professional. Measuring by the hours I've written I am professional. My goal is to share my work with as many people that can read it, as far as the internet may reach with it. I hope if you are moved you will share this blog with others, and perhaps buy my books.

Whatever the result, thank you for viewing this blog. I cannot express how greatly I appreciate the many people, from many places upon the earth, who have visited.

I bid you peace.

Je ne regrette pas la douleur, car il m'a fait plus forte

12/7/1941



Two nations, neighbors
Oft times friends
Adversarial
Soon to be enemies
Racist tidings
The message was sent

EAST
WIND
RAIN



Weapons aimed
Men trained
Armies moving
Navies cruising

TIGER
TIGER
TIGER



A nation sleeping
Dreaming of prosperity
Another creeping
To the edge of launch

TORA
TORA
TORA



Zeroes, Kates and Vals
Crashing down
Upon a sleeping fleet
Some men never waking
From the now
Eternal dream

Sounds of 50 caliber MGs
Flak being sent up
Without relief
December 7th, 1941
Air Raid Pearl Harbor This Is No Drill
All Hands, Battle Stations
All Hands Battle Stations
