We are in the midst of a poetry renaissance! Poetry readings are happening all over and numerous sites on the internet offer poets a chance to post their work. Weird times always seem to create a hunger for poets to craft poems that cut through the cultural haze with observations and messages that resonate with our higher calling. Think back to the Beats and their response to the culturally up tight 50's.

To get a real feeling for the spirit embodied in poetic words you have to see it performed live or hear the poet read it. To hear some of Sam's poems click on megaphone or the button below.

The escapades of the colorful characters in Electric Honey provide a front row seat to the cultural clash which rocked the country in the 1960's and sowed the seeds of today's conservative backlash. A joke by a small of university pranksters triggers a war between the students and an ageing right winger who needs a cause to breathe life into both his struggling conservative organization and his failing love life. By challenging the students and their mythical threat he wages a fight for America's soul that makes the gyrations of Rush Limbaugh, Jerry Falwell, Pat Robertson and Ronald Reagon seem perfectly rational.
