Rate this book
Clear rating
Is “hillbilly” a pejorative term? Not if you'all is one. At least, that is what Mr. Vance would like us to believe in his “memoir”. This book has been acclaimed and bandied about by political pundits and demographers as evidence of one of the reasons ...more

The King's Deception by Steve Berry
Rate this book
Clear rating
Okay, I'll give it two and a half stars, because the underlying plot line was kind of interesting, what with the long postulated (but new to me) possibility of Elizabeth I being a fraud and all, but the “shoot em up”, “chase em down” spy segments did ...more

“anyone lived in a pretty how town
(with up so floating many bells down)
spring summer autumn winter
he sang his didn't he danced his did

Women and men(both little and small)
cared for anyone not at all
they sowed their isn't they reaped their same
sun moon stars rain

children guessed(but only a few
and down they forgot as up they grew
autumn winter spring summer)
that noone loved him more by more

when by now and tree by leaf
she laughed his joy she cried his grief
bird by snow and stir by still
anyone's any was all to her

someones married their everyones
laughed their cryings and did their dance
(sleep wake hope and then)they
said their nevers they slept their dream

stars rain sun moon
(and only the snow can begin to explain
how children are apt to forget to remember
with up so floating many bells down)

one day anyone died i guess
(and noone stooped to kiss his face)
busy folk buried them side by side
little by little and was by was

all by all and deep by deep
and more by more they dream their sleep
noone and anyone earth by april
wish by spirit and if by yes.

Women and men (both dong and ding)
summer autumn winter spring
reaped their sowing and went their came
sun moon stars rain”
E.E. Cummings, Selected Poems
