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:

Dropping off a mess-age

Combining has occurred for progress to manifest
Contesting and anger fuel the fire
There are moments captured in every second
Even while in First-Place
Making the mustered effort to place the teachings of long ago
For now and the time in the future, which will eventually be long ago
Is this the spacing allowed by the divine’s hand
In a land where the motto is “Supply and Demand”
And riches overflow
Bitches bite, and school’s swim
Nature paused to reveal a gem
Bounty rests in every breath
Even “long ago” we knew there is life after death
Monuments, or memories
Populaces placed in penitentiaries
Some for rehabilitation others for further indoctrination
