Poet's Corner

poetry bomber


I am a poetry terrorist with a suicidal desire to live and to preach
to answer questions and to teach
people the power of free speech
I want to poetry bomb the ignorant and the greedy
I want to help the needy Feed the people of the third world
who have nothing to eat and no wages.
I want to write pages and pages
of dynamic explosive poetry on to the page
full of love and rage
which sends shivers down your spine from the desperate stage
from which I write To set the page alight
but I want my poems to be wise and open eyes.
I want to poetry bomb the houses of parliament and number 10
with my pen
with words so thought provoking they are almost choking
I want to go toe to toe with the president in a poetry debate
I want to captivate my audience
with delight and despair
with such rare skill like a roller coaster ride that makes them ill.
and still you’d want more
I want blow open the blinds in people’s minds
get read of the apathy of indifference
and help you make your own difference
every woman and every man because you can
I want my poetry bombs to blast
and to make a lasting impact on you
in everything you say and everything you do!

About the author

Dan Hooks

Hi there my name is Dan Hooks and I am a poet.

My poetry has many diverse themes from madness to the mundane, from fantasy and fable to philosophical and the darkness of reality (whatever that is).

I have been writing since I was 18 and have inspired other artists such as Benjamin Heine who created an piece of art work called”filled with fire” from my poem called “Freedom”. That poem was inspired from a quote from Nelson Mandela saying “we are free to be free”. Writing I find is a collaborative process.

I have also written other poems which have been used in language courses in America, Canada and Australia. One of which is called “poem on identity” and the other one is “Antithesis”.

I have a soundcloud account in which I post poems to music and my spoken word pieces. I find spreading my work on various social media platforms really useful for presenting my work.

I am also fond of travelling and have climbed Mount Fuji in Japan visited Finland skied in both USA in keystone Colorado and Whistler in Canada. I find perspective can be found in travelling to other countries and it also helps you appreciate other cultures as well your own.
