A new collection of twelve poems in a variety of styles including prose poetry from Benbo Smith's early 21st Century works. With a foreword by Miles Wall.
Smith's poems deal with real life, the grim, the hard, the political and social economics of constraint. His poetry is a platform for invoking discussion. He firmly believes that a poem can have its own and distinct voice, sending a message to the reader that provokes a response.
A warm peppering of literary references adds spice to Smith's allegories, which form the current of political and social justice that underpins his point of view. In the collection, he subtly takes aim at the right wing agenda and rallies against messages inciting hate and prejudice towards the working class.
He makes a stand against discrimination of race, religion, and nationality in the past and present of the new world and old. His work stands as a warning to those that may seek high office; they will only succeed if all peoples are regarded equal.
Some of the poems follow his original free verse and prose ballad style, which marks him out as a poet to watch in the coming decade. He has used the eBook format to its best, with links to invite the reader to discuss the work with him on popular social forums, thus making Smith accessible to all.
