Using many right-wing extremists in North America (which means, in effect, weird Republicans), Garebian takes well-known utterances of egregious political, social, and cultural atrocity and present them as if they were modern poems deserving of serious academic consideration. The intent is to deflate by inflating them in mock-serious fashion. So, there are samples from the likes of Mitt Romney, Glenn Beck, Sean Hannity, Bill O’Reilly, Ann Coulter, Michelle Bachmann, Antonin Scalia, Donald Trump, etc. but also from names from pop culture, e.g. Snooki, Tom Cruise, etc.

Keith Garebian is a widely published, award-winning author of non-fiction and poetry, who lives in Mississauga, Ontario. Of his 19 books to date, five are of poetry, including Frida: Paint Me As A Volcano (Buschek), Blue: The Derek Jarman Poems (Signature), Children of Ararat (Frontenac) and Moon on Wild Grasses (Guernica), for which he supplied the cover paintings and illustrations.
