Bargains from Chaplains takes a critical view at issues relating to religion, politics and everyday life in America. This hard-hitting prose poetry collection reflects the author's views on these important subjects that continue to dominate American culture. As the pendulum of politics switches once again, and America looks to Washington and the United Nations for solutions, the author questions whether there are any sound conclusions that the present body politic can offer, as well as the overall wisdom of waiting for Congress or even mainstream religion to show forth any light, as Christ commanded us in the book of Matthew. The author seeks to once again spotlight moments, emotions, as they relate to watching charlatans and clever salesmen and women who believe that they have found answers, but only offer empty promises. While you read these poems, you may reflect on your own reactions and perhaps question whether you are awake and aware or merely just sitting on the sidelines, watching the game.
