Arguments get stressful and posting on social media can make one lose their mind, so David did the next best thing: he wrote this book. A compilation of the author's thoughts on different issues and topics in this day and age. A way to start a peaceful discussion.
I PLEAD INSANITY is a collection of poems, written over a period of time from the experiences and sights of the author. Through poetry, it discusses themes of mental illnesses, rape, emotional trauma, etc. Combining subtlety with raw truth, it is a little out of the ordinary, a perfect fit for a beautiful mind.
Tanka Told on a Blue-mooned Night. A collection of poems, that subtly explore a couple of controversial themes.

"You know I cannot commit such atrocity my love. I cannot sleep with anothers wife." Tomori stressed, looking away as she moved to untie her once white wrapper.

Thrown into a marriage she despised, Abebi runs away with her lover, the head warrior of the village, in search of refuge and another life.

For Tomori to finally get his wife, he must pay the highest bride price. He must pay with his life. For every love story comes with a price.
