the swamp

I love allegories. Sometimes a high fantasy poem is, at least to some degree, more than a high fantasy poem. Perhaps it’s social or political commentary. Perhaps it’s speaking to some hidden truths about life. Perhaps it’s something entirely different. All that really matters is what you, the reader, feel when you read poetry. What do you feel?

And then put on a headset. Feel your mind blown by the movie-quality soundtrack narration delivered by Simon Howard on Twitter.


  1. Well, if there is an allegory as I believe it is, it is quite an interesting one. As the swamp is filled with all kinds of dirt, I do not often find some dirt to be worse than other dirt. It is all messy and filthy.
