"Upon entering the place I found a number of young seamen gathered about a table, examining by a dim light divers specimens of skrimshander." from MOBY DICK, by Herman Melville
I read all these poems (and re-read them) on a two-hour bus ride from São Paulo (Brasil) to a small town in the countryside.  Really enjoyed them all - thank you!
Everyone read my book auto-biography of Saddam Hussein. I promise you will cry laughing
