Fisher Prince, a collection of poetry and short stories, explores the complexities of human society through the form of poetry and short stories. Reflecting Orfali’s interests and inspiration, the book employs various speakers to portray the nuances of human experience.

The creative impulse for the poems is idealistic and humanitarian. The poems are concerned with social and political issues that contribute to universal well-being and to the common good.

Having grown up in the Middle East, an area torn apart by war and violence, Orfali focuses her intense poetic scrutiny on the terrors of war and the struggle for peace.

The poem “Friendly Fire” portrays the universal journey toward peace as one fraught with difficulties and bloodshed—yet the journey is successful. Peace ultimately will triumph.

Similarly, the poem “Share Jerusalem” envisions a time of peace in Jerusalem in which divided groups embrace each other and forgive the pain and injury of the past. Peace is elusive but attainable.

Orfali revisited her own mythology the “Fisher Prince” and transformed it into an epic poem. It is the ultimate battle against tyranny and celebration of freedom and the human spirit.

The Poems “Waters,” “Another Storm” and “Troy” are tributes to the victims of the tsunami and Hurricane Katrina.


Excerpt

Fisher Prince

From the mists of the ancient past
A god was forged from a mighty blast

A tyrant ruled on earth with steel and fire
The subjects of his kingdom were in mire

They cried to the gods for salvation
Imploring them for imminent liberation

The gods held council and set a plan
To create together an unrivaled man

Endowed with the mark of the gods
They begot a champion by all odds

Destined to fight injustice and pain
On earth and end the tyrant’s reign

A warrior with skills unmatched
On a perilous journey to be dispatched

To set free the wretched souls on earth
He was destined from his heavenly birth
