Review of "Roar Shack" by Alice Fulton

"Roar Shack" by Alice Fulton was offered by's Poem-A-Day on September 6, 2013.  The poet reveals in her notes that her poem metaphorically describes her descent into atheism after witnessing a traumatic event.  This kind of loss of faith is, sadly, common and all too understandable.

I once heard radio personality Michael Savage (pictured) address this issue.  He struggled with it and came to the following conclusion--a conclusion with which I agree:  God is omniscient but not omnipotent.  That is a sacrilegious doctrine to any faith-based religion.  However, the alternative is that an all-knowing, all-seeing God witnesses evil but chooses to do nothing about it, and that is something that I am not willing to accept.
