Reflections from the Recliner: A Collection of Couch Potato Poetry
iUniverse, 2010 - 132 pages
Beeeeeeeeeeeep! This is a jest. This is only a jest. Rhymes from the Recliner: A Collection of Couch Potato Poetry is a light-hearted devotional to classic television programming. It's tinted with humor, irony, and affection, and intended to put a horizontal hold on lovers of prose and tv shows.
It is easily enjoyed by most everyone, though poetry readers and music listeners may be the most enthusiastic, for they will also notice that many of the poems are patterned after well known pieces of poetry and popular songs.
It is for people who have grown tired of others tuning in and dropping out when they quote the same old, stuffy bits of philosophy about life and love. It is for those who want to arm themselves with a clever verse about The Love Boat or Name that Tune, and turn themselves into a regular boob-tube troubadour.
It can be enjoyed with a latte at one's favorite coffee shop, or with a beer and a bag of chips on an old sofa, munching and giggling to Hee Haw as interpreted thru Shakespeare.
There really is something good on television this book.
