when you live in a large city like Chicago, there is a never ending source of material.
Chicago, IL (Vocus) September 29, 2010
In the bustling city of Chicago, the action never stops. And, as author Jim Davis Jr. says, “when you live in a large city like Chicago, there is a never ending source of material.” This inspired him to create Poems About Life Big City Style, a sample of what it’s like to live in a fast-paced society.
In presenting this compilation, Davis gives credit to the city of Chicago. Many of his poems were the results of listening to songs from many of the different radio stations and reading major events from the newspapers.
All of Davis’ poems leave a significant message to the society. His poem, Baby, will let all of his readers know what to do in a crisis when a young lady has a decision to make and an innocent life is at stake. The author believes that families are heart broken when young ladies make the wrong decisions. With this poem, as well as the rest found in this book, Davis hopes that his message will be heard.
Poems About Life Big City Style will be featured in the 2010 Illinois Library Association Book Exhibit in Chicago, IL, on September 29-30, 2010. For more information, log on to Xlibris.com.
