bookshelves: read-multiple-times, incredibly-large
Read from January 28 to February 23, 2011 — I own a copy, read count: 3

this book makes less sense to me than any other i've ever read, yet it is absolutely fantastic. a conundrum!

tyrone slothrop, marked by unheimlich
was hoped to predict the V2 hits
but the Poissons perplexed him
with divergent erections
and distractions from all those damn limericks


everyone ought try it, and fail, and try a few more times until they make it through.

when screamings across the sky come
it matters not whether you run
for the rocket, we've found
she is swifter than sound
and the pain's done already been brung


then you can start reading it for actual content.

we've fucked us some widgets and wires
some turbines and rubber-grip pliers
strapped hilt-deep in sprockets
asses packed with rockets
is the blast-off with which we'd expire!


truly a paragon of modern literature. especially the poopfeast.
