An anthology of humorous poetry curated by Pat Smekal, Andrew Brown, and Ian Cognitō . Poets from British Columbia, Alberta, and Ontario gather to offer a smile, a chuckle, or even no-holds laughter—laughter, a balm for the soul lest any of us give in to the fatal flaw of taking ourselves too seriously.
"In selecting poems for this collection, the editors had to ask themselves, “Does this poem, this line, this passage evoke a smile, a nod of appreciation, a wink of conspiracy, a snicker, a chortle, a giggle, a gasp, a belly laugh, an un-expected guffaw… Is there still room built-in for those poignant moments that poetry can so perfectly encapsulate?”
from the Introduction
Common sense and a sense of humour are the same thing, moving at different speeds. A sense of humour is just common sense, dancing.
