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?

My Summer Vacation
CandyElvis

What I did on my summer vacation
 1
I did nothing
 2
being only nine years old
 3
My parents made me
 4
do this and that
 5
and dragged me
 6
here and there
 7
But being only
 8
nine years of age
 9
I would have chose
 10
had they gave
 11
me the option
 12
to play in the yard
 13
and with the hose
 14
even though
 15
we're having a drought
 16
and I've been told
 17
for the very last time
 18
to stop
 19
wasting water
 20
We're having a drought
 21
And rode my bike
 22
and went to Mike's
 23
and thrown a turtle
 24
against the garage
 25
and went too far
 26
way out back
 27
and jumped down
 28
from someplace
 29
too high up
 30
and broke a window
 31
and had a cup
 32
of soda
 33
right before dinner
 34
because
 35
I am only nine years old
 36
and I never
 37
ever
 38
not even once
 39
have gotten to do
 40
what I want
 41
during my summer vacation.
