Looking Forward to Volume 2

This is a cute collection of poetic political satire. If you’re a Trump fan, you’re going to hate it so just leave it on the shelf. If you have a sense of humour (especially after the 2020 election), this just might be the poetry collection for you. Looking forward to Volume 2 (especially now that the insanity of the last four years is almost over). I’m so glad Lithgow took his grievances to pen and paper as opposed to the streets with guns and beating people up. I can’t wait for the poem about Trump being the sorest loser of all.

Ridiculous

Just another Hollywood sore loser liberal with Trump derangement syndrome. Awful.

Stupendous

Clever take on current events. I had a great time reading it, and nothing but laughter came out of me. I would really recommend this book!
