A Simple Question



If the eradication of failure would mean that all could achieve success,

When will control of the population be the question that some will address?

When failure is no longer an option, and the weak have been removed,

Will the gates of Hell swing wider and more smooth?

If Heaven is really achievable, but denied for many to exist

Whose fault is it that misery is still allowed to persist?

About Daniel Kemp

Daniel Kemp, ex-London police officer, mini-cab business owner, pub tenant and licensed London taxi driver never planned to be a writer, but after his first novel —The Desolate Garden — was under a paid option to become a $30 million film for five years until distribution became an insurmountable problem for the production company what else could he do? Nowadays he is a prolific storyteller, and although it’s true to say that he mainly concentrates on what he knows most about; murders laced by the intrigue involving spies, his diverse experience of life shows in the short stories he compiles both for adults and children. He is the recipient of rave reviews from a prestigious Manhattan publication, been described as —the new Graham Green — by a managerial employee of Waterstones Books, for whom he did a countrywide tour of signing events, and he has appeared on ‘live' television.

  1. If failure didn’t exist on Earth, there would be no need for a heaven or hell as we would have only Heaven on Earth….

    • Danny Kemp says:

      Very likely, sir, but failure, by some people’s criteria, does exist! If those who are piously judgemental had their way in destroying all who are in need, then their kind of heaven would indeed be here on earth. In my hypothesis, I asked a question, but nevertheless, I thank you for your comment.
