Rattle Poetry on Civil Servants

Published March 01, 2017 Posted by
rattle v55 spring 2017 blogIssue #55 (Spring 2017) of Rattle includes a selection of poems on the theme "Civil Servants." "The collection features seventeen civil servants — poets who have worked for various government agencies, including the EPA, the FDA, the CIA, the Census Bureau, and many more," write the editors. "Apparently working for the public produces a dry sense of humor, because many of the poems lean sardonic. These poets are also smart and down-to-earth, and just may restore your faith in bureaucracy." Some of the writers included: Lisa Badner, Dane Cervine, A.M. Juster, Bruce Neidt, Pepper Trail, Jane Wheeler, John Yohe. See a full list of contributors here.
