Uncle Handsome's Redneck Poetry: The Road Less Graveled

Uncle Handsome's Redneck Poetry: The Road Less Graveled - Brent Holmes This book of poetry just makes me laugh. My favorites include "Drivin' with nothin' but the radio on" (think about that one), "The Resurrection of a Rabbit", and "We buried Aunt Edna in the Floodplain" (think about that one too)!The poems are by Uncle Handsome, who writes about his wife Eunice, his mother Granny, and his sons Big'un and Shooter, along with dogs and hogs and mules and rabbits. Poetry for those who love the country and might even have relatives living there too.
