Description

The poetry in Orphans of War gives voice to the U.S. citizen in the street faced with continuous costly, armed conflict for more than a decade, who is barraged daily with the violence perpetrated by the U.S. tax dollar, and who witnesses the significance of the acts minimized to the level where all victims (majority innocent?) are zeroed out, the ultimate in dehumanization no matter whose side observes. These poems openly confront the Pentagonal paradigm, the conscious waste of humans as well as natural resources, the effects of the capitalistic model of free-market pressures on the long-term health of the planet, on heart and soul, partnership and children, mind and DNA, the future of all who breathe. Metaphorically, Americans are now themselves orphans from the very system they received via the founders, from the family of laws once set in place for shared (inalienable?) responsibility in governance over the liberties extended and guaranteed for the pursuit of well-being.show more

Review quote

Randy Fingland is arming us with images of resistance to---and---he helps us to fearlessly name it--- the fascist empire with which capitalist free-market corporatism has saddled and burdened the people of the world these days. -- Jack Hirschman "Private Correspondence"show more
