Biography of Alan W. Jankowski

PLEASE NOTE: As of April,2016 I will no longer be posting any new work on this site because of their ridiculous censorship rules. If you want to read any of my more recent poems, they can be found on other poetry sites on the net. Thanks.

Alan W. Jankowski is the award winning author of well over one hundred short stories, plays and poems. His stories have been published online, and in various journals including Oysters & Chocolate, Muscadine Lines: A Southern Journal, eFiction Magazine, Zouch, The Rusty Nail, and a few others he can't remember at the moment. His poetry has more recently become popular, and his 9-11 Tribute poem was used extensively in ceremonies during the tenth anniversary of this tragic event...

My Brother

I can't get action nowhere
I can't get satisfaction nowhere
Just rage and hate and shouting and crying,
But it won't bring my brother back anyhow.
Why? Tell me why,
Why? Why? Why did my brother have to die?
The police say it was a gang war
The neighbor says he was with the wrong whore
The kids on the corner say it was a turf war.
