Who Holds The Blame? By Danny Kemp


Was anyone watching in 45 when all was given peace? The dead had given their souls away for the living to find release.

For forty-five years, a bomb held the day, with the brave holding fear. They cherished that threat and now, although hidden, still hold it dear.,

In 89, peace was tried again as a wall crumbled and fell. The boastful, forgetful, self-righteous West laid blame. The Eastern Block fostered all that was ill.

Russia found commercialism discovering freedom of speech. Wars found other places for its desolation to reach.

War is wrong but followed by those who have no rational thought! The wastefulness of chaos is the lesson that is taught.

Righteous democracy preaches guns, power, drugs, influence and worse.  Unfashionable humanism is a disciples curse.

Will man kill man until extinct, or will thought be the first to die. Which version of a truth is to be believed, do only militants speak a lie?

Religion is a pursuit of interest in all its myriad ways. War is a religion, where lies fill the communiques.

The dead charge a small price for souls, the living pay more! They survive in a world where the truth is a festering sore!

The human mind is selective, it remembers truth when the day has gone. Politics is evil, it’s not the man with the gun!

About Daniel Kemp

Daniel Kemp’s introduction to the world of espionage and mystery happened at an early age when his father was employed by the War Office in Whitehall, London, at the end of WWII. However, it wasn’t until after his father died that he showed any interest in anything other than himself! On leaving academia he took on many roles in his working life: a London police officer, mini-cab business owner, pub tenant and licensed London taxi driver, but never did he plan to become a writer. Nevertheless, after a road traffic accident left him suffering from PTSD and effectively—out of paid work for four years, he wrote and self-published his first novel —The Desolate Garden. Within three months of publication, that book was under a paid option to become a $30 million film. The option lasted for five years until distribution became an insurmountable problem for the production company. All seven of his novels are now published by Creativia with the seventh—The Widow’s Son, completing a three book series alongside: What Happened In Vienna, Jack? and Once I Was A Soldier. Under the Creativia publishing banner, The Desolate Garden went on to become a bestselling novel in World and Russian Literature in 2017. The following year, in May 2018, his book What Happened In Vienna, Jack? was a number one bestseller on four separate Amazon sites: America, UK, Canada, and Australia.  Although it's true to say that he mainly concentrates on what he knows most about; murders laced by the mystery involving spies, his diverse experience of life shows in the short stories he writes, namely: Why? A Complicated Love, and the intriguing story titled The Story That Had No Beginning. He is the recipient of rave reviews from a prestigious Manhattan publication and described as—the new Graham Green—by a highly placed employee of Waterstones Books, for whom he did a countrywide tour of book signing events. He has also appeared on 'live' television in the UK publicising that first novel of his. He continues to write novels, poetry and the occasional quote; this one is taken from the beginning of Once I Was A Soldier There is no morality to be found in evil. But to recognise that which is truly evil one must forget the rules of morality.
