(Mostly) Pandemic Poetry: With a Christian View
This book of poems was prompted by the author's separation from his wife during the pandemic (family medical care) and his despair of events unfolding in 2020. It includes poetry written during the virus, as well as from throughout his life which are pertinent to today's topics, such as societal ills during the COVID-19 lockdown—faith, drug abuse, war, racism, love, and sexual issues. The book has both Christian and secular influence.This book is a reaction to the viciousness of our treatment of each other as humans, and the hypocrisy of the Church and the government. The author looks past our shortcomings to an optimism, remembering that to be a genuine human being is to have conviction and courage.
