The Go Go Dancer Who Stole My Viagra
And Other Poetic Tragedies of Thailand by Dean Barrett
This volume of poems and ballads on Thailand and other lands offers the reader insight into the Land of Smiles as well as a great deal of pure fun.
The main section of the book, Poems on Thailand, includes "Lek, The Farmer's Dark-Eyed Daughter", "The Silly Old Man with the Young Thai Girl in the Texas Lone Star Saloon", "Noy of the Horny Toad" and "The Kid from Khao San Road".
The second section of the book, Poems Beyond Thailand, includes the fall of the gangster "Michael Lee" and the haunting ballad, "The Man They Called 8-Ball".
The remarkable variety of subjects and styles and moods presented range from the spiritual "The Buddha's Golden Gleam", to the hilarious "No. I am not in Love with the Maid so put the Knife down now", "The Night Bubba got it for Free" and "Buffalo, Him Die, Send Money".
