Scouring media interviews, public appearances, and leaked conversations for the work of 168 of our really important modern poets -- including Tom Cruise, Hugo Chavez, Donald Trump, Kanye West, Rahm Emanuel, Lars von Trier, and something called "Snooki" -- the Petrases, tongues firmly in cheek, annotate such literary masterworks as Jim Cramer's "Once I Was Somebody, Now I'm a Buffoon" ("The poet-financial pundit Jim Cramer here hearkens back to the incomparable lament of Dido in Virgil's Aeneid. He replaces the classic dactylic hexameter with his own innovative Cramerian Sporadic Kvetchameter"); Jack Abramoff's lamentation "On the Fickleness of Friendships" ("Neo-Beat poet (and former lobbyist convicted for conspiracy) Jack Abramoff turns an acid tongue on his former friend Newt Gingrich (who was, in effect, Kerouac to his Ginsberg) in this lament ripped from the heart. Written in the form of a blues riff, this is best read aloud over the sound of a wailing saxophone"); and Joey Gambina's "Why I Don't Kiss My Consigliere No More" ("In this radiant tercet, mobster Joey Gambina takes on the ramifications of an intrusive unconstitutional government").
I enjoyed this book for the hour or so that it took to read it.
"Every time I look at something in this book, I can't stop laughing!" I said to a friend, between snorts.
She replied, "Every time I point out something in this book to someone else, they can't stop laughing either."
