The poetry you'll meet in this collection will be biting, defensive, cynical and sarcastic. Dark humour is used to elaborate upon bleak life outlooks. At many times the spirit in these poems are rooted in antonymous rebellion. All that said, the reader will also encounter various instances synonymous with the proverbial "light at the end of tunnel".
My Review: So I took a shot at this book. I'm not big for poetry, but lately I've found a few that were pretty good, so why not try this one.
The title makes you wonder. Then you get into the book and find out there are some pretty good poems here. These poems get you to think and is nicely done. Something different for me and maybe getting a little closer to liking to poetry.
