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

Ares, We are your slaves

He doesn't call to us but we answer
He doesn't care if we worship his name
Ares, the god of blood vengeance and war
Has a will, and a way
His spear bloodies his opponents
Slashes the entrails, separates the viscera
His actions leave no scars
For none survive
To live another day
Frenzied lust for killing
Over takes society
No one leaves here alive
None ever leave
