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:

SLIM JIM
PodPoet

Slim Jim stands so tall
 1
Slim Jim gonna take a bad fall
 2
 
 
Slim Jim's pants are so straight
 3
Never change color on any given day
 4
 
 
Slim Jim gonna rule the world
 5
'Til the day bodies are hurled
 6
 
 
Slim Jim can't save them now
 7
But only stand and wonder how
 8
 
 
Slim Jim's gonna save the day
 9
With two airplanes gone astray
 10
 
 
Slim Jim didn't see 'em coming
 11
Slim Jim couldn't escape 'em running
 12
 
 
Slim Jim stood so tall
 13
'Til the bodies began to fall
 14
