Editorial Reviews

Review


"Genius poetic interpretations of current events."
- John Wilmerding
(Amazon.com)

"Abdiel Leroy shoulders the mantle of so many poets of the past who dared to take on the high and mighty with the power and dignity of verse."
-
John Donaldson (Amazon.co.uk)

"A fascinating and deeply insightful commentary on one of the craziest periods of recent history. Comic and poignant in turn, loaded with linguistic delight and full of smart and subtle allusions to Shakespeare and Scripture, this collection is a fantastic indictment against the political establishment and the 'King of Tweets' in particular. The poet is an artist and has truly crafted some wonderful pieces of work in this collection."

- Jonathan Matthews (Amazon.co.uk)

"A fresh and exciting way to look at current politics. I admire the author's use of verse and rhyme to make the reader think about another way of looking at a very hot topic. Kudos for the creativity and imagination!"
- jondave (Amazon.com)

About the Author


"My Tongue is the Pen of a Gifted Writer"


As both author and actor, Abdiel exemplifies this quote from the Bible. He has written fiction, non-fiction, and memoir. But he is best known as a poet, whose themes and forms are deeply influenced by Shakespeare, the Bible, and mythological sources.

Meanwhile, his gift for narration and voice acting, with a wide range of character voices, makes for lively and dramatic readings of his own works. You can hear him read excerpts from all his titles at poetprophet.com.

Abdiel has published six volumes of Poetry: Elijah and Obama's Dream are epic poems; Well Versed is a collection of tributes to Shakespeare, Poets, and the Performing Arts; and Verses Versus Empire is a three-volume series of political poems covering in turn the George W. Bush, Obama, and Trump eras.

He has also written a children's tale The Christmas Tree; and a memoir, Dueling the Dragon: Adventures in Chinese Media and Education.

As an actor, Abdiel has embodied most of the major Shakespearean roles, and on stages from New York to London to Beijing, though perhaps his most famous appearance is in the hit short film, The Expert. He also has three one-man shows: the classic children's tale, Wind in the Willows; and two works of the great poet, W.H. Auden, The Sea and the Mirror, and The Massacre of the Innocents. Meanwhile, his voice has often been heard in TV commercials, audio books, and radio plays.

Abdiel has also worked in the past as broadcaster, financial analyst, and market commentator. His passions include Argentine Tango, Yoga, and competitive Swimming.
