The poems contained in this book are a mixure of funny, celebratory
and other worldly. They should transport you to the land of the
broken, where an army masses in the desert, following the great
red river to the shining city of their destination. Some have taken
up shop in the desert and have made their city there, while others
travel on to the shining city. The poems are taken from the lives of
various desert dwellers as they struggle with smoking and depression,
as they refl ect on funny incidences during their lives- some involving
revenging guinea pigs, confused teenagers, curiously addicted wives
and mental home patients. You’ll fi nd the ‘desert’ setting in which
the poems are written, is in fact not a literal desert but a place of
boat races and songs, green grass, fl owers, swans, and crazy dogs! The
desert is in fact our western world waiting for the return of Jesus, it
is our world seeking to emulate that heavenly Jerusalem, mentioned
in Revelation. The desert dwelling is a place where we try and bring
heaven on earth, but where also hell sometimes breaks through.
Ultimately, with our well knit words like defences against the enemy,
we come through victors in Christ and celebrate the power we have
with the spoken word to bring joy out of sadness, hope out of despair
and funny out of....funny!
