Review of "The Labor of Stagger Lee: Boar" by Douglas Kearney














The Labor of Stagger Lee:  Boar by Douglas Kearney appeared in the March 2013 issue of Poetry Magazine.  The poem is a kind of mash-up between the old song Stagger Lee by Lloyd Price (pictured left) and The Three Little Pigs (pictured right).  It helps to know the song and the story.
