Poetry you can get! I found this collection of poems to be thoroughly enjoyable, ranging from from funny to deeply reflective. Jim Beschta has created poems full of situations and feelings I have long forgot about and was glad to remember. The author manages to capture the timeless human condition in a way that warms you up and makes you feel no so alone. I feel like they offer hope.
