Suck Free Poetry Volume 3: A Question of Caricature by Jonathan Moore

In the long ago, poetry was part of every culture. In recent years, poetry has been deemed intellectual in nature and therefore inaccessible by the unwashed.

This is, of course, idiotic nonsense.

Poetry is communication and if you do not understand a poem, the fault is with the poet, not the reader and any pretentious posturing is nothing more than arrogance and insecurity.

Suck Free Poetry is communication. It's poetry that tells stories. It include subjects that we all can understand because we all live on the same ball of dirt and no amount of pretending will make any section of dirt smarter.

You may not like every poem in this book, and that is fine, but there is nothing in this book that assumes everyone but the author is a moron. There is quite a bit in this book that states the arrogant folks proclaiming they are smarter than everyone else or possess the only answer to life are pretentious fools.

It's because they are.

About the Author

Born in 1961 into an enlisted Navy family of an eventual five boys, Jonathan grew up on or around military bases, doing all the normal things boys in the 1960's and 1970's did. A writer from an early age, Jonathan has published a guidebook on relationships for men, three volumes of poetry, is publishing a book of short stories in early 2011, has written for numerous websites, is a writing mentor in on-line workshops, and fills his time with work and hobbies.

Jonathan's experience in reading and writing poetry is founded on a love of language and story-telling. In the Suck Free Poetry series, he attempts to demonstrate that style and form need not be absent from modern poetry and that good writing should be the only grade against which poetry is judged.

Jonathan currently lives in the Philadelphia, Pennsylvania area with his youngest son, Gareth, his rescue mutt, Lady, and three cats that also were left behind when his second marriage ended and spends his time writing, teaching and training in martial arts, making armour for and participating in SCA heavy combat, making props for and performing with the We Are Street Circus troupe, playing video and other games, and waiting for Sandra Bullock to come to her senses and call him.

It's not a great plan, but it hasn't failed entirely; yet.
