Poetic Obituaries: [Angkarn Kalayanapong] began writing in the late

1950s and was initially criticised for his transgressions of poetic convention and use of unorthodox language. Some of his last pieces of work were politically inspired, reflecting the problems in the deeply divided Thailand. The People's Alliance for Democracy received his contributions during the antiThaksin campaign.

 One of his last poems lashed out at the Yingluck government's plan to let the United States use the Utapao airbase.
