Modern taste runs to short poems—and these verses are precisely that. Over fifty verses, ranging from a six-line reduction of Christopher Marlowe’s "Dr. Faustus" to a one-word, slant-rhyme, leonine line in iambic dimeter. Most start with another poem—either a single line or the entire work—then respond to it, confute it, subvert it, pun on it, or otherwise simply have fun with it. Enjoy!

There are 30 poems, most with unusual (often startling) themes in this first volume of the "If you like to laugh" series. The size of the verses range from one stanza to several "pages", appropriate for any age, from middle school reader to senior citizen.
