Summaries and Reviews description: Product Description:

Topical poems - smart, thoughtful, irreverent and funny.

John Allemang's "Poetic Justice" column in The Globe and Mail astonished the newspaper's readers when it was launched in 2002. Each week since then has brought a made-to-order poem about personalities in the news, written with a stylish flair and a well-versed cleverness that hardly seems possible with the immediacy of the potent subject matter.

Now Allemang has selected 75 of his most memorable poems that continue to charm, provoke and amuse his dedicated readership. Whether it's Conrad Black's costly approach to the joys of marriage or God's exasperated musings on the same-sex controversy, Allemang's conversational rhymes have created a following for topical verse that goes well beyond the usual poetry audience. Illustrations by The Globe and Mail's award-winning Brian Gable add a touch of visual wit to this collection of verses.

Poetic Justice is refreshingly simple and direct, accessible to anyone who longs for a smart, often funny and always engaging approach to the issues of the day.
