Since it's National Poetry Month, I thought it would be nice to post Poems of the Week that ranked among my favorites. While looking for James Wright's incredible "Saint Judas," I came across this poem instead. How could I not be intrigued by that title? This poem is a lot of fun to read, humorous and sad at the same time. Enjoy!
