GROWNUP’S MOTHER GOOSE
by Cassius Sargent
“This collection of 149 smart, witty poems is one of the best I’ve seen for invoking laughter through the pun, masterfully interwoven with bits of wisdon. In this collection, common sense is the common theme. It sneakes up on us, surreptitiously tweaking our politically correct conscience, poking fun at our own sense of self-importance, and reminding us to not take ourselves so seriously. This book makes it fun to be human.”- Harvey Stanbrough, Poet, Author, Freelance Editor, Pulitzer Prize and Frankfurt Award Nominee
“Many modern poets would not be found dead in the same block with Cassius. His writing are not easily misunderstood. This book should make most readers chuckle, laugh or think, or it may irritate some. The verse below expresses the spirt in which it was written. Poetic License covers many sins.
Levity and brevity
Are very much akin.
The fewer words to get it said,
The sooner sinks it in.”
