Poetry Critical 2.0

Hey guys, Donald here.

In a few weeks, this site will be 9 years old. 9 years! And I still know some of the earliest submissions by heart.

But, boy. That’s like 102 in web-years. So it’s time for something new. I’m building that something now with my nights-and-weekend minutes (and plenty of coffee). Buy me a cup?

Random Poem:

Chief, you let us down tonight
peanut

Illiniwek--
 1
I know they
 2
don't allow you into
 3
games
 4
on account of your
 5
incorrect portrayal
 6
of natives,
 7
but you should
 8
be ashamed for
 9
your team.
 10
 
 
Illinois--
 11
you
 12
 
 
Let
 13
Us down
 14
This night.
 15
Here you
 16
Entered as a
 17
Rising star,
 18
 
 
but put your
 19
balls
 20
where they
 21
didn't belong.
 22
Did common sense
 23
elude you
 24
even in the
 25
last
 26
gripping
 27
seconds?
 28
 
 
Dearest Fighting Illini--
 29
a season and
 30
a night
 31
of sweat and
 32
of tears and
 33
of disappointment
 34
 
 
your hard
 35
work as a
 36
rising star
 37
falling faster than a
 38
basketball.
 39
