Verses From A Life (2 Book Series)
From Book 1:

John Louis Cimasi spent his childhood on a farm on the outskirts of the small village of Portland, in western New York State. He grew up to become a successful businessman and entrepreneur.



Some of the poems in his new collection, Verses from a Life, reflect this success story. Other touch upon deeply personal moments or musings.



Cimasi has been writing poetry for more than six decades. He plays and experiments with a variety of poetic styles, visual forms, and metrical patterns. His range shows a number of eclectic inspirations.



Cimasi recounts his first encounter with his wife in “Meeting Deborah.” Poems like “Justice, Betrayal” and “Love Eternal” explore their subjects with passion and daring. Cimasi weaves in classical and mythological references as well. A poem dedicated to a spider becomes “Pity Poor Arachne.” Other poems tackle different religious traditions and the largest questions we face in life.



Cimasi is an avid music lover, and he includes several odes to various composers and pieces. His passion for music comes out in the musicality of his work. Readers are encouraged to read aloud to experience the full effect of the poems.

Dinkum Dodger (3 Book Series)
From Book 1: Australian bush poetry at its best… entertaining and thought-provoking.
Comical antics and diabolical yarns as told through the eyes of Dinkumous J. Dodger, a true blue Aussie larrikin, are outrageous, provocative and hilariously funny.

Political correctness is swept aside and daring opinions are openly expressed to challenge governments, politicians, and international conspirators. Probing questions are posed about political motivations, foreign manipulation, and Australia’s place in the world.

A sample of Dodger’s cheeky humour starts with this shocking event.

THE CROOKED WILLY WONGLE

On the farm it's proper when men have need to pee,
they never use the thunderbox but go behind a tree.
And cousin Fred in great relief was shaking off the drops,
when Blue that mongrel cattle dog bit his willy off.
We took him off to hospital.
The nurses…

Well that's just the beginning of the story…

As a young country lad growing up in rural Australia, the yarns are humorous and light-hearted, with pranks and practical jokes aplenty. A childhood from a by-gone era is brought to life with scenes from the schoolyard to the dust of an outback station.

SCHOOL DAYS

“Why was ya late young Dodger?”
the ageing teacher asked.
“Tis very nearly smoko time!
Stand up and tell the class.”

“Why was ya late young Dodger?
The second time this week!
And as it's only Tuesday
should I give ya tail a tweak?”

“Or does ya have a good excuse
for why ya wasn't 'ere?
Stand up young man and tell the class.
Speak up so all can hear.”

“Please Sir, well…

His excuse was brilliant, but not quite believable and ended with some unpleasant and hilarious consequences!

As Dodger matures he is unafraid to form his own opinions… This excerpt expresses disgust at the machinations of Australian and international politics.

POLITICAL PERSUASION

By the shores of Burley Griffin,
'neath the shadow of the flag,
where public servants mill around
and prattle on and brag
about their petty conquests
and complain about their woes,
where power-hungry peasants
strut in thousand dollar clothes,
where the wealth of a once great nation
is squandered and flittered away,
You're as far from real Australia
as anyone could say...

Along the way there are poetic protests concerning basic human rights and social injustice — and speaking out for what we believe! Dinkum Dodger’s view on some of the world’s big questions are addressed.

HEAVENLY PERSPECTIVES

At times I can't but wonder why
people starve and children die,
and men fight wars and kill and maim,
and no-one knows just who to blame.
Who pulls the strings? Who makes the plans?
Who sets the course of life for man?


Often nostalgic, harking back to the simplicity and old world charm of a century past, the Days of Dinkum Dodger –Volume 1 will cause you to 'laugh and cry, and to wonder why'. For a good giggle or a stark reminder of the state of the world, the poems of John Saomes are sure to entertain and amuse.

Lyrik Limericks & Co (Reihe in 3 Bänden)
Aus Band 1: Verlagstext kurz:
Beim Sterben ist jeder der Nächste. Nichts zeigt diesen dramatisch ernsten Sachverhalt besser als Didier Desmerveilles' makaberes ABC. In 26 Limericks und anderen gedichteten Geschichtchen mit garantiert tödlichem Ausgang präsentiert sich Desmerveilles gleichsam als "Final Destination"-Lyriker, als Heinz Erhardt des schwarzen Humors. Denn hier verlässt keiner lebend das dicht gewobene Netz seines ganz privaten Geschicks. Keiner.

Langtext:
„Du hast“, so befand Dirks Ma Doren, „in Kneipen so jung nichts verloren!“ und schloss voller Sorgen die Tür bis zum Morgen. Vor der fand sie Dirk dann erfroren." Und nicht nur Dirk ereilt wie in diesem Limerick ein ganz und gar unbarmherziges Geschick, auch Alma, Björn-Olaf, Yvonne, Zoltan und die anderen in diesem schaurigen ABC des Untergangs verlassen nicht lebend das von dem schwarzhumorigen Schicksalsbüchlein abgesteckte Terrain.
Didier Desmerveilles' Dichtung ist eine Kreuz- und Entdeckungsfahrt quer durch den Gemüsegarten der Reimkunst - vom ganz normalen Schüttelreim bis zum listigen Limerick. Heinz Erhardt lässt grüßen. Und Gevatter Tod steht finster grinsend daneben.
Für ABC-Schützen der Dichtkunst, Lyrik-Zyniker und alle, die Limericks mögen.
Außerdem ideal geeignet für alle, die noch witzige Beiträge für Hochzeits- und Jubiläumszeitungen suchen oder sonstwie unter Reimzwang stehen. Denn die in jedem Gedicht bzw. Limerick verwendeten Vornamen lassen sich natürlich austauschen.

Cat vs Human (4 Book Series)
From Book 1:

Yasmine Surovec began sketching her clever and sarcastic Cat Versus Human cartoons as a way to relax and unwind. Soon, her popular blog at catversushuman.blogspot.com began receiving as many as 12,000 hits per day, with a number of posts going viral and appearing on popular Web sites such as The Huffington Post and I Can Has Cheezburger. Now, a selection of 100 Cat Versus Human strips--many never previously published--can be found inside this inaugural collection of Cat Versus Human.

Proud owners of Felis domesticus will instantly recognize Surovec's keen insights into cat behavior and all of the characteristic intricacies of the cat-human relationship, such as the allure of an empty cardboard box trumping an expensive battery-operated toy or how a cat's favorite nap spot might as easily be inside a litter box, on top of clean laundry, or directly on top of a human face. Cat Versus Human also encourages an affectionate look at your once-was-in-mint-condition midcentury modern sofa that is now being unstuffed one cat claw at a time.

The Beautiful Poetry of Donald Trump
All I ask is fairness

People are constantly attacking my hair
I think it's very unfair
Obama said he never met his uncle Oscar
Can you imagine if I made that statement?
It would be the electric chair

What if there's another side to Donald Trump? A sensitive, poetic side? Driven by this question, Rob Sears began combing The Donald's words for signs of poetry.

What he found was a revelation. By simply taking the President Elect's tweets and transcripts, cutting them up and reordering them, he unearthed a trove of beautiful verse that was just waiting to be discovered.

This collection will give readers a glimpse of the Trump's innermost thoughts and feelings, on everything from the nature of truth to what annoys him about Halle Berry ? and will reveal a hitherto hidden Donald, who may surprise both students and critics alike.

I Could Pee on This: And Other Poems by Cats
Cat lovers will laugh out loud at the quirkiness of their feline friends with these insightful and curious poems from the singular minds of housecats. In this hilarious book of tongue-in-cheek poetry, the author of the internationally syndicated comic strip Sally Forth helps cats unlock their creative potential and explain their odd behavior to ignorant humans. With titles like "Who Is That on Your Lap?," "This Is My Chair," "Kneel Before Me," "Nudge," and "Some of My Best Friends Are Dogs," the poems collected in I Could Pee on This perfectly capture the inner workings of the cat psyche. With photos of the cat authors throughout, this whimsical volume reveals kitties at their wackiest, and most exasperating (but always lovable). Plus, this is a fixed-format version of the book, which looks nearly identical to the print version.
