There once was a man from Glasgow,
He had a huge growth on his elbow,
It moved to his knee,
He felt he should pee,
He couldn't and now he is yellow.

Alas is a great example of neoappalachian poetry. Raw and inspiring, yet gentle to the subject matter. It handles the subject much the way Bill McKinney handled Ned Beatty in the classic movie adaptation of the novel Deliverance. Pure poetry. Let me just say "Alas", I need more.
