These microwaves that bite into your feet, destroying muscle, and no telling what – they cook you like they’d cook a piece of meat – this is of Uncle Sam torture begot
Macclenny, FL (Vocus) March 23, 2010
From a former regular army who has gone through mental and physical torture and terror comes a heartrending, poignant, and eye-opening poetry anthology that will clutch the hearts of readers. After Our Golden Age, the Age of Iron is a gripping collection of poems that show the sentiments and emotions of a victim of “microwave harassment.” Poet-author Andrew Goewey shares his life through these one hundred stirring sonnets.
These poetic pieces take readers into the heart-wrenching and agonizing ride Goewey has gone through and lived through while facing and braving the microwave harassment he never really deserved. These sonnets, penned down in the summer of 2009, reflect the suffering and pain he has endured for years under Uncle Sam’s system. In one sonnet, he shares, “While justice is so mild, injustice stark – what they have done to me’s been hell’s mandate. This torture – something Nazis would have done – this violation of all human rights – they think this torture thrilling and so fun – it’s of America our darkest nights,” and in another sonnet, he declares, “These microwaves that bite into your feet, destroying muscle, and no telling what – they cook you like they’d cook a piece of meat – this is of Uncle Sam torture begot,” and in one other sonnet, he reveals, “This secret prison of the CIA – replete with torture of the body and soul – will turn a lively person to decay if he seems useless, on the public dole, or interested in the covert ways that intel groups make use of to destroy their targets who in merry month of May can die, the ruthless motive of their joy.” But even with the tragic, frank, and honest verses in most of his sonnets, in his last one, he writes that even with everything done to him, he is not against the military because he, himself, was in the army for a time and that they were comrades back then.
“These sonnets are dedicated to any sympathetic to victims of torture and terror, which microwave harassment can be. It is 100% unconstitutional, illegal, and infiltrates the entire country. If for some reason you’re on the wrong side of some spy agency, they will have no mercy on you, and you, afflicted, risk dying of some form of cancer such as leukemia, dying of a heart attack, or becoming a cripple,” heartily expresses the poet-author.
After Our Golden Age, the Age of Iron is a poetic journey into Goewey’s psyche, heart, and soul. Through these verses and poems, readers will witness the indomitable and unwavering spirit of the poet-author.
