|Reviews for The Elite|
| Isca 7/27/09 . chapter 1
I like the contrast in this poem between 'breaking free from Christ' and 'being enslaved by the enemy' - clearly the speaker realizes how harsh the world can be without his faith to lean on.
I like that the repetition of the word 'elite' is ironic - on one hand, the speaker is no longer an 'ally' of God, and thus, is not an elitist, while on the other hand, his new free-will makes him both 'elite' and 'normal.'
My favourite line is, "We live the old life," as it's both angsty and tragic.
