Gary Beck about this book: Days of Destruction is a poetry book that explores the anguish and delight in everyday life and the horrors and wonders that man has contrived. From the simplest painful observation of a homeless women's struggle to survive a world grown alien, to a government sponsored of a misguided military invasion of Somalia, the poems take the reader on a journey both familiar and foreign. The poems are cries for help for the downtrodden, exposures of the abuses our society inflicts on the defenseless, the vulnerable, a call for better understanding of the world the poor and needy share with the privileged.
With passion and charity, the poems reveal a new look at the everyday, the commonplace, that we overlook in our daily routines, as well as the bigger issues that affect us as we go about our business of making a living, raising a family, not always aware how fragile the fabric of life can be. Readers will recognize some familiar sights and perhaps see a few new visions.
