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:

Our Earth

I want to wreak havoc on this earth
Burn the churches that lie
Corrupt the lovely children that plague this earth
Throw salt on the wounds of the weak people who cry
Massacre the innocent civilians on this earth
Torture the souls in love until they die
For now, all of you are safe on this earth
For, I am only a thought in your head passing by
