The Political Poems of Andrew Mitchell Schaeffer book cover Idealogical Symposium of the Common Man book cover


   Many times now, in my joy, I have confided in a stranger, an acquaintance, that I am an author of a political pamphlet, to be met with the spontaneous question of "What is it about?" I have struggled on several occasions, all occasions in fact, to answer, and walk away with the feeling of being a fool in their eyes. My answer always guarded, they are political poems and then I stop, a selection of poems and then I regret the word selection. Once a barstool away I was asked: who are they for? And then I realized my next answer on any occasion should be complete (as the political poems are), that answer I reveal to you now: "The Political Poems of Andrew Mitchell Schaeffer" are an intellectual argument. The rest I leave to you my reader.
