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:

Alert are the goalies

Maybe Crouch Peter or Henry Thierry,
Tomáš Rosický and John Aloisi,
Barnetta Tranquillo, Ronaldo Cristiano,
that Ivan Kaviedes, Agustín Delgado,
Omar very Bravo, Kaká or Adriano,
one Torres Fernando, Shevchenko Andriy
or Chun-Soo Lee could, but not Carlos Gamarra.
One of them is likely
to get Golden Booty
when finished is Tourney.
