Someboy Else Smashes the Shop …

so I don’t have to.

via Aaron Haspell’s God of the Machine, a fine thrashing administered by Mencius to a book of bad poetry and to the poetry farm system.

I just can’t work up the will to spend so much time and effort on crap (“nothing is unjustly remembered”), but I’m glad somebody does.

BTW, Aaron has a good post of his own on Larkin’s “Spring,” though I think “craven” needs a little more attention.
