The poetic journey continues in this sixth collection of songs and verse, reflecting a growing world-weariness at the increasingly toxic sociopolitical zeitgeist we know find ourselves in... In a... More > new reality, where logic and reason once again seem to have been tossed on the trash-heap of history in favour of ascendant passion and emotion, strategic courtroom tears, and the institutionalised temper tantrum... Where sloganeering summarily shouts down any sort of reasonable argument, and where the rulings of the Kangaroo Court's trials by social media are instant, uncompromising, absolute, and utterly without appeal... And above all, where what you know is never as important as what you FEEL... "Son, everyone eats a peck of dirt before they die."< Less

As Karl Marx famously said: "The Road to Hell is paved with good intentions." Indeed, quite often, over time, the best of intentions eventually yield the most repugnant of results, such as the unfortunate tendency for many progressive social movements to eventually mutate into little more than crude instruments of revenge...< Less

The next stop along a poetic journey, which began with "Shattered Images", and continued with "The Problem With Revolution"; the overarching theme of "Sooner or Later,... More > They'll Turn on You!" is one of betrayal. We betray our family, we betray our so-called 'friends', we betray those, who care about us, we betray our community, our society, and our nation, but most of all, we betray our own ethics and beliefs. Worst of all, is that betrayal doesn't always go to the highest bidder. Sometimes the greatest betrayals are bought and sold for worthless trinkets, and empty promises...< Less
