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:

Murder Game

I'm tired of getting screwed, tired of being ridiculed, like the judge is yellin out "orange your being over ruled". Told I can't be happy or free , locked in these chains symblolizin my lost dignity. Walking down the hall full of prison cells, looking at these convicts all destined to this hell. Man now I'm here finding my way of life, sufferin from the strife, of my murdered fuckin wife. I pleaded that I did it, too bad I was framed, got fucked over once again by a madmans murder game.
