Kids' Politics
by William Lloyd

Kids Politics is a brief set of newspaper articles, using insider theory to describe adventure and city living. Its written from a Jewish or Gaelic perspective, for an insight into how the poor relate to big issues. Its inspired from the streets of Sydney and written to support religion that has no intention. In the haiku style, these articles are trying to express how poverty can drive you mad and make a statement about simple poverty being worthwhile. The business theme expresses poverty as a romantic experience. Describing this, this collection of newspaper articles, written to expose weakness in religion on the streets of Sydney in our cyberpunk twenty-first century, follows the story of an adventurer who feels magic can be made in nasty places, journalism his worthy intelligence. This collection is the smaller part of three larger collections written for The Australian newspaper and intended to create an awareness of unconditional love.

About the Author

I'm a romantic poet and I write in the haiku style. I try to create Zen with poetry, expression, and magic. I believe in a true heart. Romanticism started as an existential experience for me. I burned manuscripts and drafted music for rock bands. Bjork and Bob Dylan were a big influence. I learned a lot from their take on love and religion. Stream-of-consciousness writing was addictive, especially considering I was in a hospital for some of that time. I remember adventuring in blackouts and meeting interesting people when I first struck out as a poet. I made many uses from prose in much the same way as Mozart could see through paper. So too can a poet see into a heart, I am the type to believe this kind of magic can make you feel insignificant. Our universe inspires me like this. The poetry I create makes me feel my own feelings. For me romanticism becomes prose when it describes how you interpret happiness. I found Zen philosophy and romance once I discovered how to survive mental illness. The two arts are similar; for me they come hand in hand. The pain I feel inside is often heavy; this is when I like to think poetry is a useful expression.
