by UFO Teacher Richard Smith
A unique autobiographical collection of disturbing, poignant and fascinating verse on alien contact and the epic saga of humanity!
WARNING–This collection of poetry is by turns moving, disturbing, vivid, amusing, appalling, controversial and especially addictive. If you are easily emotionally disturbed, this book is not for you. If you are taking an MAOI Inhibitor, whatever that is, apparently anything can cause dangerous side effects, so this book is probably a bad idea too. If you are pregnant or nursing, you should not even read this press release. Otherwise hold on for a completely new world and the wildest ride modern poetry has to offer.
This collection of verse pulls no punches. Richard Smith takes on all the provocative issues including religion, racism, sexism and abortion with courage and unique insight. Interspersed among the most raw and vivid verse are passages so touching and tender that the reader is rendered helpless. Legions of Light / Armies of Darkness is nothing short of captivating. It is impossible to read this book and come away emotionally unaffected.
Even more compelling than Smith’s treatment of everyday issues are his forays into the spiritual and supernatural realms. Anything is possible in this author’s world of thoughts and words. The entire collection ranges far and wide through everyday life and beyond but is all held together by real events and emotions from Richard Smith’s larger-than-life personality. He wages war against a cold and uncaring patriarchal world through “Mother” an impassioned matriarch in the form of (why not?) a bipedal preying mantis. Her thoughts and feelings are brought to life through Richard Smith’s prose. Legions of Light / Armies of Darkness is a tour-de-force destined to become a Twenty-First Century classic.
