In the first week of May's Everyday Genius Weekly, Christopher Newgent presents two brief poem series, The Lion and The Lamb. Tomorrow brings The Lion, Thursday: The Lamb. On Wednesday, we'll hear two tracks written for the project by Christopher's old band, No Heroics, Please. And Christopher's friend, Joe McHugh, will bring it all back home on Friday with an Afterword.
