Humorous Poems

Gelesen von LibriVox Volunteers

This is a collection of fun poems by West Virginia poet M. Ignatius Brennan. In his poems, the poet makes fun of the people in his surroundings, and the society in which he lived. In most instances his humor is benevolent, but can turn malicious, for instance where Kentucky and Kentuckians are concerned. - Summary by Carolin (6 hr 37 min)
