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

Why Do We Wonder

The length of the chord
The width of the stick
The string cut to length
The puppet is ready
Our patriot blood flows thick
But we forget
Why
Why do we fight
Why do we make war
When the flow is steady
Of the dead
And there are no rewards
