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

MARS, Red with Rage



MARS Bringer of War by Gustav Holst

Overlooking his span
Of human misery
Mars smiles
There is nothing better
To him
Than the bestial response
And anger
In war
No honor
No compassion
Just rage
Everlasting
