Open letter to Annie Lennox

Dear Annie Lennox,

I am writing to express my deepest gratitude for your incredible music and your gifted voice, which has always been a powerful force for women. Your talent and artistry have been a constant source of inspiration for me, and I am truly grateful for all that you have done to support and empower women through your music.

I wanted to share with you a new volume of poetry that I have recently published, titled “Poetry to Read in the Dark.” This collection is specifically about women, and it is a deeply personal project for me. I would be honored beyond measure if you would consider reading it or even reading one of its poems aloud to set the spirit straight. Only if my poetry manages to touch you, of course.

Poetry to Read in the Dark (2022) (362 downloads)

You know, my country has been founded on a very bad energy, which comes to light in this collection by evoking the spirit of Anna van Saksen. As you can read in the poem, she suffered great abuse and by bringing this suffering to light we can put things in the right perspective again.

I know that you are a busy person, but I hope that you will find the time to consider this request. I believe that your voice has the power to inspire and uplift, and I am confident that your reading of these poems would be a truly meaningful and impactful experience for all who hear it.

Thank you again for all that you have done to support and inspire women through your music and your advocacy. You are truly a role model and an inspiration to us all.

Sincerely, Martijn Benders


Known as Xee-PArX SHKLot FAKRK I was minding my own business s a benovalent(1) ruler over an autonomous but relevant section of the Gamma-tertia quadrant of a galaxy, when an interdimensional hackhole zapped me into this dimension, where I have to deal with 'humans' who talk about 'reptiles' and 'lizards' and they have not got the faintest clue what they are talking about. It does not sound very inclusive at all!

But only if we do it first.
