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?

De vs Con ...struction
vida

An invisible war
 1
upon all are forced
 2
 
 
to engage in a form of destruction
 3
love and hate are destined to argue
 4
even justice will turn to no distraction
 5
but claim all, forever mark you
 6
 
 
An invisible war, I say!!
 7
upon all are forced
 8
 
 
just like a ghost of no friendly business
 9
evil creeps behind to find a victim
 10
pay attention or you’ll fail to witness
 11
the evil side of this material system
 12
 
 
An invisible war…
 13
upon all are forced play
 14
look on an apple,
 15
and conclude there was a tree…
 16
 
 
good and evil have there fruits
 17
destruction-construction
 18
both of (struction) the same roots
 19
few letters make up its final course
 20
