the deplorable poet

is a poet, scholar, investigator and performer.

As a veteran of the US Army, the deplorable poet (Greg Tucker) began creating poetry for both therapeutic purposes and artistic expression. The deplorable poet’s pen name derives from the “tell it as it is” content that the poet creates. Currently the deplorable poet has published numerous works on a variety of Poetry sites and has created a following on social media. The deplorable poet’s first book ( Social Distancing This!) was self published and is available on Amazon. “Sour Cream and Vinegar” is the latest project that the deplorable poet has undertaken and will be made available soon by Newman Springs Publishing.

The Deplorable poet’s work touches on Libertarianism, humor, love, loss, tying imagery to emotions and in all things hope.

The deplorable poet feels most at home when performing to a live audience.
