Please Excuse This Poem: 100 New Poets for the Next Generation

pleaseexcusethispoemEdited by Brett Fletcher Lauer and Lynn Melnick


This compilation of 100 poems will relate well to older teens. The poems take a raw view of life for teens, and a closer examination of the issues they face. Some of the poems are deep. Some of the poems take very close examination to understand, while some of the poems are straight forward. This is not a quick read. The collection does contain references to all aspects of teen life including drugs, language, alcohol, and sexual content. For this reason it is best for High School and Public Libraries.
