The Sunken Restaurant and Other Verse

The Sunken Restaurant and Other Verse is a light-hearted but incisive collection of comic verse written during the 1980’s. We hear how a plan for a gourmet restaurant aboard a large boat is threatened when the boat slips its moorings and gracefully sinks below the water; what happens when a town in Georgia passes a law that everyone must own a gun; who complains when a city announces a ban on private ownership of lions, tigers or bears. These are some of the targets of Philip Taylor’s hilarious poetry in this newly published collection.

This compendium of his outrageous rhymes and pointed barbs is made more vibrant by the accompaniment of some expressive line drawings by his daughter, Camilla Taylor.
