"The New Phone Book's Here!!!"
In the movie "The Jerk", Steve Martin's character gets excited when the new phone books arrive: "I'm somebody now!" I kinda feel a little like that, today. There is a wonderful new book out, full of excellent writing on Academia, Life Sciences, Physical Sciences, Mathematics & Technology, Medicine & Health Sciences, Humanities and Social Sciences... oh, yeah, and my little poem.
Even though I thought The Ridger's poem was better, mine is the one you can see in the preview; indeed, aside from the table of contents (which you should take a look at--this is an excellent collection!), my poem is the only bit of writing in the preview! A position of honor, indeed!
... and I had to choose to remain anonymous? So much for fame, glory, and fabulous riches!
Anyway, the book is available here--be sure to click the "preview this book" link and see what all is in this collection! If I ever run into anybody who has bought one, I will (given sufficient notice) sign it with a poem for them--and just for them.
And if you are looking for a poem in this post, that is also there in that link.
