Veritas Vanished

A Poem by Bob McNeil

Aphorists say that

The truth is cold—
Cadaver-in-the-arctic-cold.

Granted, the truth is a lot of things,
But it’s the thing
That’s not being told.

I believe
The truth is a stranger
That’s about as foreign as an extraterrestrial.
It will never land on the lips of politicians.

That’s the truth.


Bob McNeil was influenced by the Imagists and the Beat Movement.   Furthermore, after years of being a professional illustrator, spoken word artist and writer, he still hopes to express and address the needs of the human mosaic.
