Poetry By Rhys Hughes
POEMS ARE USELESS Poems are useless at stopping wars that have started but wars are more useless at poetry than poets. Missiles dipped in the ink of blood write nothing worthwhile. PROPAGANDA The invaders are claiming that we are shelling ourselves. That's nuts. THE INVADERS The invaders came across the land but tripped on the steppes and fell down to death. DICTATORS Dictators strut up and down like clowns wearing big egos like oversized shoes. GENERALLY Generally generals bend the knee to politicians while privates have no leg to stand on after they leave the trenches. At least that is the way it used to be. Now civilians are legless too, a footnote to official history.
Rhys Hughes has lived in many countries. He graduated as an engineer but currently works as a tutor of mathematics. Since his first book was published in 1995 he has had fifty other books published and his work has been translated into ten languages.
