One More For The Reader 9


This book is my 9th journey in the poetic world. This book reflects what I have been through in the last year or so. There are joyous poems.silly poems too. I also have reflective poems about the world as I see it as well as one or re erotic poems as well. In this book, I also brought back the character Miss Ladymay,which was introduced in my Hitchhiking Down Life's Highway book eight years ago. Overall, I believe that this book will make you laugh, it will make you cry,as well as think and sing. So enjoy this poetic journey that I call Verses
