A collection of poetry readings for the edification and enjoyment of the three small philistines who have invaded our home these last several years. I now make these podcasts available for anyone who finds forcing children to eat vegetables rather undemanding and feels that real glory is to be found in inflicting a diet of poetry. These recordings represent my attempts to make the words palatable to younger savages. Poems culminating in death, disfigurement or violent humiliation are strongly preferred in this population. These are over represented. I make no apology.
