Title: Yankee Broadcast Network

Authors: John F. Buckley & Martin Ott

Publisher: Brooklyn Arts Press

Date: October 1, 2014

Paperback: 72 pages

My Take
I am a lover of poems. I actually have written a ton through my life. Mine are the typical rhyming kind. Though I must say I have always enjoyed reading poems where people can turn anything into poetry without always rhyming and that is where this book come into play.

John F. Buckley and Martin Ott have taken life and turned it into poetry. The focus of their poems are on broadcasting, hence the title of the book, Yankee Broadcast Network. You will find that nothing is off limits, which makes it a perfect read because everything you can possibly imagine gets covered. The titles are just as awesome as the poems themselves. For example: TV Dinner Theater, Better Living Through Television and Our Favorite Programs We Can't Watch.

So whether you have a strong love for poetry or just love things that are "outside the box", this would be the perfect book for you to pick up and read.
