2016 - The Selected Satires of Kevin Higgins
By

Rating
"2016 - The Selected Satires of Kevin Higgins" is a timely collection of 16 topical satirical poems plus Kevin's re-write of the 1916 Proclamation. Everyone is in here: Lucinda Creighton (or Lucy as Kevin calls her), Denis O'Brien, Angela Merkel, Enda Kenny, Michael D. Higgins, Joan Burton (God rest her), Tony Blair, Hillary Clinton...Fox News, Irish Water, her Holiness Cora Sherlock of the Pro-life Campaign, and the monument to high liberal seriousness that is his excellency Sir Fergus Finlay all also get dishonourable mention. If some people had their way, this book would be banned. Be sure and buy as many copies as possible before it is.
