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?

Youth Hunting
om

"The call of the wild", some may say--
 1
The voice that shouldn't be heard, but is
 2
and is heard by all of the
 3
underaged,
 4
life is a game,
 5
invincibles.
 6
 
 
Those pied pipers of the world
 7
with their magic flutes and pretty pictures
 8
beckoning the children into the nothing.
 9
And what do they do then?
 10
They sit, whining about
 11
the lack of innocence
 12
and the future that life doesn't hold.
