an introduction to legal reasoning – A Stack Poem

Taking a quick break at work and decided to see if I could “write” another stack poem with the books on my bookshelf in my office. This is what I came up with.

  1. Today I learned something new! Until now I had never heard of a stack poem. Now I am wondering what kind of stack poetry I could come up with, especially in my newly acquired theological library (on loan from a professor who moved to Canada – 19 banker’s boxes full). I could easily read from my own shelves of books, but wouldn’t it be neat to open up a box and write a poem based on what was packed by someone else?

    • Anthony, That would be fun! Sounds like a great challenge. I hadn’t heard of a stack poem before last week either. I like the one title Mere Christianity that I wrote with the books from my home library, but this one was kind of fun, too. Peace, Linda

    I actually read the “Fried” in the 1st spine as part of the title, so I got a happy layer of fried cheese & sharp teeth too. (I tried writing with my workplace books on sociology, erk, couldn’t find my way through — hats off to you!)

  3. This is brilliant, humorous but with a rapier-sharp undercurrent of truth! Also shows that in the right hands, even the most unlikely book titles can be turned into biting verse.
