Mechanical Mouse
By Ralph A. Thomas
Price: $3.99 USD. Words: 5,960. Language: English. Published: May 4, 2012 by Martian Publishing. Category: Fiction » Poetry » Contemporary Poetry
This is a humorously cynical view of society and the moral systems we have developed. The poems poke fun at government, hippies, the drug culture, romance, sexuality, sociology, politics, and so many things about life that we take for granted everyday. Most were written in my "angry young man" days in college. Cute illustrations accompany each poem. That is, "cute" if you like rodents.
