Filled with wry puns, clever turns of phrases, and tautologies that knock the reader over from a slant, Little Richard the Second adds a bit of tutti frutti to the regalia of the eternal bard.

Excerpt ˇ


From Little Richard the Second:

Words hurt not
Because 'blue'
Is not blue

But words are
Pebbles and waves
An ocean

That is not
Waving and is
Not an ocean
