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:

Evil Sebum
mints

Look at the sea bum
 1
Succumb to his sebum.
 2
His pimpled face
 3
Is such a disgrace,
 4
But it's not his fault;
 5
It's sebum assault.
 6
His sebum's depravity
 7
Is of great gravity.
 8
 
 
The excessive sebum
 9
Disturbs his cerebrum.
 10
His head and his hands
 11
Are full of sebaceous glands.
 12
They keep exploding
 13
And instantly reloading
 14
So that the sea bum
 15
Remains full of sebum.
 16
 
 
He does not love the skin
 17
He is in.
 18
Every day he cries,
 19
But to his surprise,
 20
Snap, Crackle, Pop!
 21
The secretion won't stop!
 22
With less sebum,
 23
He'd be a free bum.
 24
