I have a poem entitled “Tyranny or Humanity” in this collection of protest poetry. It won 3rd place in CLP’s Poems of Political Protest contest.

About the Book

Note: City Limits Publishing owes me $110 which I doubt I’ll ever see. Compared to what is owed to former employees and authors with full collections published by this company, this is chump change. Despite having won 3rd place in their contest, they strung me along for months promising payment which I never received, and eventually they went out of business entirely, and now this title is out of print. I won’t be linking to retailers because any leftover available copies purchased now won’t benefit the contributors. I’m only leaving this page up as evidence of my contribution to an anthology.

Info blurb from publisher:

22 Authors. 37 Poems. 1 Mission: Challenge the World.

When City Limits Publishing set out to bring Poems of Political Protest to readers, we had no idea the response we would receive. With hundreds of entries, this anthology represents the best of the best. The voices represented here are from all over the world, all across the political spectrum, and all worthy of being heard. Poems of Political Protest is a cry out to the world for change. These poems are the voices of the hurt, the oppressed, the struggling. They represent the fight for a better and brighter tomorrow while still honoring yesterday. All we have, all we own freely and clearly, are our words. May this collection bring forth positive change.
