This is a good book for children to show them that it is possible to hold on to their dreams and to make a contribution as they grow up. But it is also a good book for parents to read with their children as a reminder that sometimes those children may not grow up exactly as they planned; a child can still grow up and be a piece in the larger puzzle, even if that piece does not fit in the way their parents wanted.

With chapters ranging from Depressants, Religion, Relationshipping, Sex, and, aptly, Animals, Food, Fists, Balls, and Butts, this collection has something for everyone to laugh and be mildly offended over. It's cute, cutting, groaning, clever, and consistently inconsistently. After surviving a long battle with sense of humor cancer, Koesters' Bagel Soup sprung out of the ashes of bad cooking to become something whereby he figured he could do the least damage to society. (I mean, who doesn't enjoy a laughing? ) Though he'll be the first to say he can't draw, you may agree, Bagel Soup is good for wasting your time and provides healthy eye laughter. Enjoy.

I have waited so long to build a large enough collection and be able to distribute in a format that it deserves. The inspiration for these poems is life in general at times of great emotion or at night I would wake up and write or sometimes one line of a poem would run around in my head until I put it down on paper or until I wrote the rest of the lines to finish it. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
