If you think all of Langston Hughes' poems were serious and / or politically motivated (most of them were), there are quite a few in this book that will crack you up - some fun for fun's sake, others that pushed the limit for its time. Certainly one of the most important poets of the 20th century, whose work left a print that is still noticeable to this day.
