This is a hymn to sickness and despair, a paean to true darkness, the triumphant wail of dissonance victorious, set against a world putrid with the stench of good intentions yet corrupt to its savage core...I piss on your naivety and falseness... enjoy!


Howl dog!
Howl your pain and rage in anguish at the savage moon
Tear and stab and rip and rend the corpse of god’s buffoon
The gentle soul who promised peace, who perished all too soon
Piss Dog!
Piss dog!
Piss into the bloodied eyes of  their infested god
Desecrate all holy books and tread them into sod
Beat the holy virgin with the stiffness of thy rod
Rape dog!
Rape dog!
Rape and rend all innocence and bend all to your will
Penetrate and stab and shoot until you’ve had your fill
Bathe your soul in the dark communion of the kill
Spew dog!
Spew dog!
Spew bile on childhoods’ corpse at the end of love and time
Crush the love of man and wife, sound hatreds’ scornful chime
Shred the screaming heart of joy and bury it in lime
Slink dog!
Slink dog!
Slink away in night’s dark shade before the moon is dead
Hide your savage countenance , let slump your fevered head
Horror, night, unending grief, to these dog you are wed
Sleep dog!
Sleep dog!
Slumber long in dreams of pain mid Morpheus’ vast halls
See through yellowed sickened eyes, eternity now calls
Cracked and broken pervert-heart whose temple roof now falls
Die dog!
Die dog!

Exceptional all the way . . . !!

Happy Christmas,

Reviewed by J'nia Fowler 11/24/2008
I'm not certain what to say except that your verses are powerful and you express that darkness which often lurks inside our hearts and minds exceptionally well. Light corrodes.... yes but it does infinitely more than that I think. Religion is mans futile attempt at becoming perfect and acceptable to God. I believe God hates religiosity but desires only a relationship with his created beings.
Your poem speaks volumes and I'll not be forgetting its' impact on me for some time. Kind regards J'nia

I would not be concerned with writing "in small numbers" because when you write it speaks volumes! The undercurrent of each line is filled with agony and passion, yet it envelops us into the story. lindalaw

Vivid imagery...dark...and gripping from start to finish.

Keith, the dark side, the horror genres of poetry, literature or movies -- all are unexplored fields to me -- except for gothic suspense novels which were in vogue in the '70s. So I'm not qualified to comment much on your work, except to say that your passion, your originality and your expertise shine. Your volume of works posted or mentioned gives evidence as well of your talent and your devotion to your subject.

Bravo, then.

Outstanding sweet man..sure have missed you and your well and safe always...Hugs

Keith, when I read your work, I usually feel the sensitivity of a creative soul who sees what we call evil and is not afraid to explore it and then express it and expel it. For some reason, although I am not attracted to most dark or gothic or simply graphic works, there are those writers that I feel I "understand" better... you are one of them.

Reviewed by Sheila Roy 8/21/2008
A very strong return, Keith. This poem is passionate, and it celebrates the dark side vividly. It's rare for you to use this type of rhyme scheme and I think it adds power to your words. Maybe some would be shocked by the darkness of this poem, but I happen to think you write this genre beautifully. You embrace it, and you're unafraid of what others think - which is admirable. After all, where would literature be had Poe scorned dark writing? Hugs. Keep them coming!

Welcome back. Why such anger? Pain? It would be fascinating to read were you to turn your talent in the opposite direction.

Stunning poem, Keith. Good job.
Reviewed by JASMIN HORST SEILER 8/14/2008
HOWl HUMAN for thinking so ill of dogs, only humans should feel that guilt, for it comes with sins, which are realized for knowing better, and knowing different, and not as the innocents of Gods creation, who should and will forever be innocent. I know it's a metaphor Keith, but like pigs, or other precious beings we, us, abuse their names and the connections with them, I could give you a few more, but you know them.... It's a mindset as old as, but not legit, we should try not to encourage, I know you'd like to piss on the Pope or anything to do with the outrage of Christianity etc, and on that part I say you have a case, knowing where you're coming from.
Anyway I did enjoy your outburst, it was as usual very creative!
Forgive though if I misread it, and let me know will ya!
Blessings! Jasmin Horst
