The Angry Poet

Elements of the satire lead to educative instruction. The story has a positive character development sub narrative. Efforts have been made to craft a fiction for guiding and empowering children with worthy attributes.
Murder, mystery and the bizarre. Elsewhere County appears deceptively ordinary. It can be unwittingly glanced out of the corner of one’s eye. An intuitive itch or oddly pricked curiosity might be a precursor to its discovery. It is found by few in the most mundane of places, perhaps in a shoddy corner café, the local station or an innocuous narrow side streets. It resembles any place we care to frequent, but that is where similarities end and Elsewhere County begins. Prepare to have your belief suspended.
Poems, thoughts and philosphy.
A volume of selected poems, thoughts across differing subjects with some symbolic monochrome photographic works.
What if you were one of the oddest of creatures, in the strangest of lands, who always made wobbly pots when everyone else made perfect pots? (Illustrations by Diptee Thapa and written by Jon Solis).
To try and fail, be teased by others displeased; might cause you to go another way. Wobbly pot Weebu comes across a Majestical Magical Master, or Magi, as preferred for short, receives a curious gift and learns a valuable lesson.
