Br. Benedict Joseph of the Cross
In More Tramps Abroad, Mark Twain wrote, “Every man is a moon, and has a dark side which he never shows to anybody.” For some, when an average weekend’s relative liberties do not suffice, Halloween is the perfect time to let the mask fall precisely by donning one. But in this poem All Hallows’ Eve is the occasion for a rather different kind of transfiguration.

A parody of Allen Ginsberg's Howl. In "Whisper" Mr. Bilbro breaks down some of the feelings of and about Generation ME. A thought-provoking piece that should be required reading in all freshman English classes.

Satire at its best. This poem takes on the mannequin at your local mall and the corporation that tells him what to wear.
