A Book Review

(This is a book review I wrote some time ago.)

BOOK-articleInlineI’ve just finished reading Calvin Trillin’s last book

called “Dogfight,” in which he takes a snide look

back at 18 months past of the president’s race

which to some might be dull, but for one saving grace.

Trillin, you may know, writes often in verse,

which is great–but for me, it couldn’t be worse.

For after I read, I’ve a horrible time

looking for patterns of meter and rhyme

in other books, for which my misery compounds

as I get more frustrated when they cannot be found.

So curse you Cal Trillin and your poetic style!

Please write something normal once in a while!
