Wry on the Rocks by Steve Allen

The circulation says it all on this volume of poetry by humorist Steve Allen. It was a book dependent on its author remaining in the popular eye and despite his achievements, Allen’s time in the sun has long been over. Even those who recall him are unlikely to associate him with poetry. Let this book go. Though the poetry in it isn’t all comic, none of it is significant.
