by R. D. Schiele, Sr.
In this cleverly rhymed book of adult-themed poems, author Richard D. Schiele, Sr., offers his observations on everything from love and family to human behavior and drugs. With tributes in “Granny,” “Our Sister,” and “My Lady” he reveals strong family ties and appreciation for what he has shared with these women, while in “News” he laments the ills which plague our society from school shootings to drug addiction to man’s inhumanity to man.
In “Let My Afro Grow” he displays a powerful sense of African-American pride in his heritage and culture, and in “Meat” and “Booz” he extols the virtues of a vegetarian life and avoiding overindulging in alcohol.
With views on everything from women wearing mini-skirts to handling a significant other’s rejection to working for a living, Mr. Schiele shares a gamut of emotions, events, and experiences common to many people’s lives.
