Kansai Time Out
Reviews EN not YEN

Not unlike a large bar of chocolate in its physical dimension, the bite-sized selections of light verse in EN not YEN are every bit as satisfying.

Gambari-kun (the nom de plume of a long-time Kansai resident) defines his "poessays" as "opinions expressed poetically."

Each of the 112 offerings is made up of one or two words per line and rarely runs longer than a page, by the end of which the reader has chuckled at least once and more often than not become somewhat wiser.

Take this memorable example:

two
