About this product
- DescriptionHumorous travel poems written through the author's unique filter. From the introduction by Brendan Constantine: Rick Lupert is an honest poet. He has an honest face. His mouth is honest. His words are honest. The sentences he makes with those words are honest. Even the complete fabrications that emerge from the pages of his latest book positively sizzle with integrity. When, for instance, he describes his recent trip to England and the fascinating encounters he has with the people of that proud country, you can almost believe that he went there. My Irish mother used to say (the others hardly spoke to me unless I pretended to be my sister) 'There is thing crazy about thinking there are Englishmen hiding behind the sofa. The craziness is in looking for them'. Well folks, so keen are the subtleties of Mr. Lupert's poetry, the reader may wonder if closing the cover of this slender book is eugh to keep the British Commonwealth described therein from running amuck in your home.
