I wrote a review of Penguin’s Poems by Heart app for iPhone… in iambic pentameter OF COURSE. Read this motherfucker and weep.

If your iPhone’s glare sometimes makes you cry

And you’ve played your games till they left you sick

There’s an addictive new app you should try

Get Poems by Heart from Penguin Classics.

Angry Birds I suppose is worth a toss

Jetpack Joyride will exercise your thumb

But the one offers no gain for time’s loss

The other is sure to leave your hand numb.

With this software, your dull memory train

By sweet rehearsal of history’s lays

Do a kindness to your neglected brain

Download this and learn learned lines by play

Now if only this fine app would bequeath

An in-app purchase for soliloquies!

Billy Shakespeare eat your heart out.

    The actual Joe Hill (author of NOS4A2 and Horns) reviewed Poems by Heart and it’s so cool. To those that haven’t tried...
