One disappointment: We find no Casey at the Bat! The editor fears readers have already read of Casey's misadventure one time too may. I disagree because (1) there is a younger generation which has scarcely made this Batman's acquaintance, and (2) it's the single finest example of American light verse, deserving a hallowed page in this august volume. But otherwise -- enjoy!
Bated, fated, over rated?
Let’s just say the book is DATED!
If it weren’t for “Anonymous,” (that hack),
I would have asked for my $1.38 back.
So, I’m afraid this book is not a charmer,
(And only one poem from Richard Armour!)
But, I guess I’ll just let it slide,
And that’s today’s lesson from the black cat guide.
