The Happy Lawyer

I’d like to follow the previous posts celebrating National Poetry Month (here, here, and here) with a hastily composed bookspine poem titled “The Happy Lawyer”. I imagine that before they printed words on magnets, people would rearrange their books to write poems on the fly. Bookspine poetry is celebrated by libraries and readers alike.

    In the same spirit, I would like to offer a less “happy” bookspine ode, composed entirely of titles of books written by my colleague David Papke and listed in Marqcat.

    Political crimes
    The clash of labor and capital
    In industrial America
    The defenders
    Framing the criminal
