Lyrik Limericks & Co (Reihe in 2 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.

Great Australian Book of Limericks
Everyone knows at least one limerick. Here are all the limericks you can remember, and many you can't recall but wished you could—from childhood ones to some very adult ones. Jim Haynes has arranged more than a thousand limericks according to type—witty and whimsical, childish and charming, linguistic and logical, fair dinkum and funny, barmy and British. Australian idols and icons, place names, and prime ministers are paraded in all their historical and satirical glory. Some limericks, however witty, are joyfully risque, vulgar, or even downright crude—thoughtfully placed categories ranging from mildly impolite and immodest to those obscene and odious examples beloved of rugby clubs and teenage boys of all ages. All show that the limerick is a celebration of life, nonsense, and lusciously lecherous energy.

The Rain in Portugal: Poems
NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • From former U.S. Poet Laureate Billy Collins comes a twelfth collection of poetry offering over fifty new poems that showcase the generosity, wit, and imaginative play that prompted The Wall Street Journal to call him “America’s favorite poet.”
 
The Rain in Portugal—a title that admits he’s not much of a rhymer—sheds Collins’s ironic light on such subjects as travel and art, cats and dogs, loneliness and love, beauty and death. His tones range from the whimsical—“the dogs of Minneapolis . . . / have no idea they’re in Minneapolis”—to the elegiac in a reaction to the death of Seamus Heaney. A student of the everyday, Collins here contemplates a weather vane, a still life painting, the calendar, and a child lost at a beach. His imaginative fabrications have Shakespeare flying comfortably in first class and Keith Richards supporting the globe on his head. By turns entertaining, engaging, and enlightening, The Rain in Portugal amounts to another chorus of poems from one of the most respected and familiar voices in the world of American poetry.
 
Praise for The Rain in Portugal
 
“Nothing in Billy Collins’s twelfth book . . . is exactly what readers might expect, and that’s the charm of this collection.”The Washington Post
 
“This new collection shows [Collins] at his finest. . . . Certain to please his large readership and a good place for readers new to Collins to begin.”Library Journal
 
“Disarmingly playful and wistfully candid.”Booklist
