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:

New and unimproved

The human race as we know it,
is slowly evolving back into
With our need to be
Going under the knife for
             Breast enhancements
             Butt implants
             Brow lifts
             Demi Moore.
And relive our youthful days.
When in today,
Our teen age romances
through text msgs,
We can't even spell
The edited version,
of Romeo and Juliet.
We are screwed.
