A joke is a very serious thing.
Vacaville, CA (Vocus) November 3, 2010
Winston Churchill once famously quipped, “A joke is a very serious thing.” Anyone who has a favorite comedian (and who doesn’t) knows just how insightful well-placed humor can be. Innovative author Stacy Sofscole knows well the power of humor. In his darkly humorous poetry collection, Animal Crackers (published by AuthorHouse), he tackles the struggles and philosophical issues of life with a wit and charm that delights.
“I want people to feel free and liberated after reading this book,” says Sofscole, “and I hope it will allow them to look at the world through a new lens.”
In the middle between old and new
Passion filled to the rim
In the middle between me and you
Overflowing Midnight swim
Feather-soft silky skin
Laid across the leather seat
Honey spout milking sin
Splicing spirits, conversing feet
Underneath the citrus moon
Open spores drip the salt
Of sonic waves meeting dunes
Coming to its gentle halt
Playful in manner, Animal Crackers is a thought-provoking work by a new voice in poetry.
