Lyrics and Poems by John K. Samson


I won’t lie, I read this strictly because my book challenge called for a book of poems. It’s not that I didn’t enjoy it—some of my favourite songs by the Weakerthans are in this book—poetry just isn’t my first love… or my second, or third.

No. 15 on my challenge. It’s no coincidence that this book came so late in the game.

  1. I didn’t know he wrote poetry per se. However, when I wrote a post about poetry month, I talked about lyrics as poetry, referring to Samson and his album Provincial as an example. So there you go. Sadly, the Weakerthans are no more.

Don’t be afraid. I won’t smite you. Probably.
