This collection of Poems is a protest against the Devil's new devices of the "Star-War" which I being prepared in the laboratories by the prostitutes of science in an era censure of "Civilisation" at the end of his life is forgotten. This collection of poems is an evidence of privations, pains, betrayals and even perils of existence.

"It is likely that the new young may cultivate the will, below the mind, to accept the asceticism of work by which alone we may abolish the need for need by accepting the little that nourishes our body, so that we can nourish our souls-which can wilt under the weight of material gain.

These poems aim to stem the death of love in our midst. It is also possible that people will sense in these poems poet's longing for renewal. All readers may await poet's visions of hope from these poems far beyond the threatened doomsday.
