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

Useless Tucson Sacrifice

Is it any wonder
The altar has been consecrated
With the life of so many taken
By their blood the dais so painted
The saints tears concentrated
With no walls lifted
No barriers to protect the innocent
From the guilty
Nothing to sustain the children
In a world undone gone insane
We are guilty
Everyone of the sacrifice
Of the innocent
Guilt pouring down
No justice
No savior sent
To save us
From our selves
No blood for sin
Because there is
No perfect lamb
To offer up
For none are unflawed
To save this place
To save this land
From us
