One person had a religious experience. When I performed The Jackal I scared the living bejesus out of a young man and he had to be excused. Youll howl like Ginsberg or rant like the Dickens. In my opinion youve never seen a book of poetry so profound, so sweet and in fact there is a poem If I could call a cloud, I especially wrote for anyone who wants to impress their lover. If you buy my book you have my permission to use this poem, but be aware! After you read it to your lover, Im not responsible for your sex..Please, for my sake, cherish these poems. They are life changing. Why Ding Dong Daddy alone is worth the price of the book. You get introspection, comedy, and total delicious fun in this collectors treasure of original one of a kind poetry.For instance, Peanut Butter Day, crack up a round, I mean renowned critic and he bought fifty copies of the poem. Why? He said something about a mess in his department and how he need some humorous script if anyone was ever going to get clean to bottom of the hubris in the W.C. they call his University.Well you can imagine the hubris I developed when The Sweating Joker Poems won the Noble prize. Just kidding, but I was named poet lariat for Santa Barbara when I roped in a couple of heifers at Earl Warren Showgrounds with just this simple rhyme: That! . . . Why that is just too fat.Seriously, I can only tell you how great The Sweating Joker really is if I get you salivating to have this book by reminding you of an aphorism:You never regret what you do. You only regret what you dont do.In the future, in the years to come, just flash back to right now. You had the chance to enlighten yourself, to begin again to enjoy reading, to open a doorway to to new, funny, and in fact, titillatingly funny bone funny extravaganza.I went to the dentist last week, so I can verify Im not just whistling through my teeth, and Im not whistling Dixie- I a serious poet who has examined what is funny and what is not funny.Not! I mean Im not serious when I say, and you can quote me: This book will knock Lady Gaga and Miley Cyrus out of first place and soon Ill be dancing up on stage in my underwear like a sweating joker.That might not be so funny, but damn I would love it. And youre going to love this book of poetry.You want to have some fun reading? Then go ahead and buy the book. I give you my personal guarantee that it is a collectors item, that you will enjoy reading it, and that its worth every cent. Guaranteed!
