That's exactly the one I was thinking of, too.

My fave is "Wild Nights", which is not of that meter (thank goodness), but still somewhat doggerel-ish in feel. I still like it.

I just preordered the new AJ Jacobs book for my Nook (will be available for download tomorrow). I'm looking forward to it - I enjoyed his books on his attempt to read the encyclopedia and his attempt to live according to the Bible. This new one is his attempt to be the healthiest person alive.

How do you switch to another book when you have 15 pages left? Mind-boggling.
