Self-Published Books Get No Respect

On the left, a book with the author’s drawing of a monkey on the cover. On the right, A Poet Gone Mad. The scroll reads: “Poetries of/reality/Brought to the/forefront./Humor/Contraversial/Political/Sarcasm/Social/Problems.”

That looks like my handwriting when I was 12 years old.

That monkey is totally rad.

I dig the inclusion of "Social Problems", mostly because of the ambiguity of the term. Maybe there will be poetry about social ills like violence and inhumanity, or maybe there will be poems focusing on how gas can really interrupt a first date. Either way, this looks like a gem.
