Simply because April is National Poetry Month
I prefer movies.
I prefer cats.
I prefer the oaks along the Warta.
I prefer Dickens to Dostoyevsky.
I prefer myself liking people
to myself loving mankind.

I prefer keeping a needle and thread on hand, just in case.
I prefer the color green.
I prefer not to maintain that reason is to blame for everything.
I prefer exceptions.
I prefer to leave early.
This album is a part of the series “Polish Poets.” It was created in 2010-2011 in consultation with 1996 Nobel Prize in Literature Wislawa Szymborska.
On this album, Szymborska’s poems are performed and arranged by Jacek Telus, and they sound very original. The style is best described by composer himself as “Heavy Metal Poet Rock.” The hit rock songs and reflective ballads, were specially selected so that the work of the poet could reach the widest and most diverse audience.
