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

The disaster game

We'd all be willing to help
To solve the problem
Since it affects us
But the scientists and researchers 
Say words that only upon deep inspection
Will we be able to think we know
These words of these experts
Are soporific, deathly
Making things unclear
They set out to be authoritative
They act commanding
By the special words they speak
They confuse most any listener
They make certain
That the cause seems lost
Without them to save us
So we turn over all decisions
All of our choices
To these nameless people
Who'll dirty the water even more
So that others will pay the cost
And these experts end up
With everything
And nothing is solved, at all
