Fester Man
The surface is quiet and tranquil
As melodious as a murmuring brook
As peaceful as a sleeping dove
A glowing smile for all humanity
For life is a congenial, cozy nest
The surface is firm but also leaky
Oppression seeps through the pores
Down the spine and into the soul
A subdued retaliation is forming
The soul is an arsenal
The mind is a general
The spirit is a frantic warrior
Fester Man is now a
One man army

Oh, thank you for the compliment. I wrote two chapbooks, but I haven't put them on the market. If I get people interested I can put them on the market. I have to talk to the publisher about that. That you very much for inquiring. In the meanwhile I put a poem almost every day on Poeticous.
