Dr. David R. Huff: Poet

Dr. David R.Huff attended the 2008 22nd Annual Poetry Convention and Symposium hosted by The International Society of Poets in conjunction with International Library of Poetry, Poetry.com, and Watermark Press.

Dr. Huff displayed has poem “A Wasted Life”:

The yellow star slowly emerges above the mound  of vanity

Fetid vapors of forgotten objects assault the nose

existing in the rotting world, shadows of small humanity

Waste foragers consigned to relieving family woes

All live for the next treasure truck to belch its collection

The material jungle drones on without the slightest clue

Castoff luxuries all stored in lines of plastic barrels

Cans and broken fetishes are the only objects of value

None notice when a child dies among the mound’s perils

A life of lost value destined to find others waste

Castoff luxuries all stored in lines of plastic barrels

It is time for the truth to be faced

The yellow star slowly emerges above the mound of vanity

A life of lost value destined to find other’s waste

Existing in the rotting world, shadows of small humanity

 

The poem is about a young boy in a waste dump. Dr. Huff teaches for English as a Second in Saudi Arabia. He has five books.

Congratulations and good luck to Dr. David R. Huff, Poet.
