By Lord Ra Krishna El
Genre: Poetry, Philosophy
This "new age" book of poetry reflects the diverse views and philosophies of it's author Lord Ra Krishna EL. It's an intimate, humorous and thought provoking group of poems intended to evoke strong emotion. To quote the german philosopher, Friedrich Nietzsche, this style of poetry can be called "Zukunfts poesie" which translates into "Poetry of the future", where truly original ideas are presented thru poetry.
It's subjects include society, pop culture, religious dogma, God and the new age of Aquarius. This book was written and published during the false incarceration of its author in Chicago's notorious Cook County Jail.
I enjoyed many of the poems, they were all different but alike at the same time. The poems about his daughter, "Butterfli" are heart warming. One of my favorites is "Thoughts...", I feel like many people could relate to that poem. I also liked "The Last Dragon (Bruce Lee)", it was a part of the Icons - Section III. Four stars!
