Heroes & Hypocrites: Poems of Politics
In this collection of poems about politics and political life in America, Earl Baker tells the reader how our system of democracy really works in practice. Written to entertain as well as inform, it reveals how people in politics think and feel, what motivates them, and what makes our system successful despite the flaws and quirks. Taking his cue from Ogden Nash, Earl uses verse to express his thoughts with tongue-in-cheek humor, and makes some serious points as well.
