The principles of economics may not seem like the most likely topic for a volume of poetry, but English writer Harry Graham pulls this feat off with aplomb in the collection of light verse, Fiscal Ballads. Assuming the voices of a number of residents of a rural village, Graham humorously illustrates concepts such as taxation, supply and demand, and financial risk.
Master of humorous verse Harry Graham strikes again in this concise collection. Perverted Proverbs is a satirical send-up of the trite adages and aphorisms that have long been passed down from generation to generation. With tongue firmly in cheek, Graham offers a bracing antidote to your grandpa's favorite sayings.
