"A book of haiku's that brings sunshine to the hood when frowns dominate. Ever seen corner stores in the middle of the block, with poverty performing on the corner? If not, then here is a book that aesthetically portrays life through satire. Simple, yet beautifully abstract.”-Chris Slaughter

Think Big!
or White Collar Crime


Send your children to school
and teach’em how to steal
Legally,
'Cause that's the American way.

Sadly Maybe For You Others,i.e. I Was Born Into Poverty-Beat Kicked Around By My Bastard Daddy And Even Momma-But I Didn't Turn Out Like Them You Or Most Abused Children-Why!?

No I Didn't Read Your Book Only Stuff You Write!

TRASK...
Reviewed by Eileen Granfors 2/5/2009
This sounds like a brilliant book. Looking forward to reading it. e
Reviewed by Lloyd Lofthouse 12/19/2008
I knew parents like the one's in "Think Big"
I taught for thirty years in the public schools.
I'm sure this wasn't meant to be funny, but I laughed anyway.
I'm so glad I'm not in the classroom anymore
where everything had to be under lock and key
even me.
