New Strategy



The strategy for Syria

Should be to make sure

United States citizens

Are educated enough

To find Syria’s

Traumatized borders

On a globe…


Or –

In the case

Of 34% of millennials –

To be educated enough to find

Those traumatized borders

On the flat plane

They believe

The earth

To be.






Ben White

Author of the books, Buddha Bastinado Blues and The Kill Gene, Ben White thought he was a poet, only to find out he is not a poet at all. He is a witness. What he writes is testimony.
