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:

YO MOMMA!! >: |

Lou: "your breath smells so foul, it's like the matrix all over."
Matt: "oh yeah, Well you so ugly when there was a fire on your face someone put it out with an axe!"
Lou: "Bring it!"
Matt: "Ding dong..."a package for loser"...IT"S BRUNG!!"
Lou: "Your momma's so fat, instead of pulling lint out of her belly button, she pulled out sweaters!"
Matt: "Your face has so many zits it like....oh wait a minute! BINGO!
Lou: "Your so stupid, you got run over by a parked car!"
Matt: "You're so stupid you tripped over the lines in the parking lot!"
Lou: "You're so blind, you tripped over the line of a cordless phone!!" "What you goin to say now!?!"
Matt: "Well, at least my momma don't go running after school buses yelling: TWINKIE!"
