A Month’s Worth of Instructional Poems

by Rebecca Bridge


The release date is just in time for the  2019 Christmas holiday. Plan to purchase it as a gift for yourself, your loved ones, or anyone who might need a little help navigating this confusing world of ours. The wisdom and wit in these poems prevail. And I can’t wait to share them with you.
