A Microwave Harassment Victim Expresses His Woes through Sonnets
With candor and honesty, Goewey shares his life under torture and terror
Macclenny, FL (Vocus) February 21, 2010 -- From a former regular army who has gone through mental and
physical torture and terror comes a heartrending, poignant, and eye-opening poetry anthology that will clutch the
hearts of readers. After Our Golden Age, the Age of Iron is a gripping collection of poems that show the
sentiments and emotions of a victim of “microwave harassment.” Poet-author Andrew Goewey shares his life
through these one hundred stirring sonnets.
These poetic pieces take readers into the heart-wrenching and agonizing ride Goewey has gone through and lived
through while facing and braving the microwave harassment he never really deserved. These sonnets, penned
down in the summer of 2009, reflect the suffering and pain he has endured for years under Uncle Sam’s system.
In one sonnet, he shares, “While justice is so mild, injustice stark – what they have done to me’s been hell’s
mandate. This torture – something Nazis would have done – this violation of all human rights – they think this
torture thrilling and so fun – it’s of America our darkest nights,” and in another sonnet, he declares, “These
microwaves that bite into your feet, destroying muscle, and no telling what – they cook you like they’d cook a
piece of meat – this is of Uncle Sam torture begot,” and in one other sonnet, he reveals, “This secret prison of the
CIA – replete with torture of the body and soul – will turn a lively person to decay if he seems useless, on the
public dole, or interested in the covert ways that intel groups make use of to destroy their targets who in merry
month of May can die, the ruthless motive of their joy.” But even with the tragic, frank, and honest verses in
most of his sonnets, in his last one, he writes that even with everything done to him, he is not against the military
because he, himself, was in the army for a time and that they were comrades back then.
