Thinking Cap: A Book of Epigrams
Putting yourself in the public domain;
Remember to leave out your name.
Thinking Cap is Mark Pirie's latest collection of
poetry. It consists of over 80 epigrams written over the past
Following in the footsteps of New Zealand verse satirists like
Denis Glover, Rex Fairburn, Karl Stead, Harry Ricketts, R G Park
and Niel Wright, Pirie updates the New Zealand epigram in
contemporary settings of pop culture and literature
The book has been divided into six sections: 'General', 'Film/TV',
'Music', 'Literature', 'Love' and 'Public'
Witty, ribald, and biting, Pirie runs a knowledgeable eye over many
aspects of contemporary society and history.
