A parliament of fools, or a confederacy of dunces? Blethering celebrities and blundering politicians, royal babies and right royal cock-ups, milkshake madness and vegan sausage rolls - and, of course, the long and winding road to Brexit. If ever the times were ripe for a return to the high days of Augustan satire, it’s now – and the Spectator’s literary editor Sam Leith provides it. Our Times in Rhymes is a waspish, affectionate and very funny look at the state of our nation as it – let's be even-handed - teeters on the cliff-edge of a marvellous opportunity. Here is all the insanity and inanity of 2019, month by cherishable month, rendered in galloping comic verse and paired with satirical drawings by the brilliant cartoonist Edith Pritchett. It makes the perfect Christmas stocking filler for anyone who needs a good laugh at the damnable times we live in.
I spent half of the last three years living in a hammock in the woods, my contemplations about Love, Life and Revolution turned into rhymes which have combined to create this book, well worth a read if for no other reason than it isn't, by any means, 'by the book', enjoy your journey
This book is about a passion for writing. The poems contained herein are a selection of many which I have written. They are a variety of many places of the mind and in our times. Throughout the years I have been in contact with some special people and some special places. I have been offered a rare opportunity to be a part of recording things as I saw them. It is great fun to re-arrange words to give a different meaning to what we thought we already knew. I will continue to write poems for those who enjoy reading them, including myself.
Filled with colorful illustrations and catchy rhymes, Saintly Rhymes for Modern Times teaches children that everyone is called to be a saint. These kid-friendly rhymes allow children to see the beauty of Christian holiness through the lives of our more recent saints.
Presented inside is a creative collection of my personal poetry, alluring articles, and savvy songs that I’ve conjured up to capture your curiosity. My book provides a powerful message to readers of all ages. The context of my writing is surprisingly simple to read and relate to, therefore one doesn’t have to be a literature scholar to comprehend it. This wide variety of little ditties mostly consist of my true to life experiences and personal feelings based on drugs, love, religion, and nature. My approach is to write about what people particularly feel uncomfortable talking about. My goal is to provide the reader with a profound knowledge of how my uniquely assembled collage of writing reflects on the psyche of today’s society. I truly believe that this book will educate, intrigue, and inspire the readers intellect. I’ve also included an additional bonus feature which reveals my perspective on how to live a successful life, and how one person alone can make a significant difference in this world. Which I believe is our purpose for living. Half of the proceeds from this astonishing book will be donated towards a fantastic foundation that I’m creating called A Hand Up, Not A Hand Out. It’s a non profit organization designed to help people who have creative minds obtain the interest free funding for starting a small business, invention patents, publishing a book, song writing or things of that nature. I know we all can agree that it takes money to make money and I personally feel that it’s wrong to deprive people of their dreams because of financial difficulties. So please help me help us all by purchasing this one of a kind, everlasting book of keepsakes. I encourage every person to pursue their dreams because I believe that’s what being a free American is all about.
When I was about nine, I found out that, as difficult as it seems, the truth can set you free. I was playing with a crystal dinner bell I was not allowed to touch, and then I broke it. My dad was furious -- it was his sainted mother's most precious possession. I was inches away from a spanking. He had his belt in hand, but Mom interceded and said, "Davey boy, now that you know that was wrong to do, tell us you won't do anything like that again." I thought about it, shook my head, and tearfully blurted out, "You know I probably will." My mom melted, hugged my dad, who, shaking his head, put his belt back on. It turns out the truth is elusive, but by and large, that psyche-burning incident has been my touchstone when confronted with difficult choices. I believe this book tells both painless and painful truths that need to see daylight. For those who don't agree, read between these seemingly straightforward lines; they underscore our obsessive duplicity that's tragic in its implications.
