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:

Get Lost.

I hate the way you take so long to orgasm,
when I want you to just fuck and get it over with.
(You aren't good in bed)
I hate the way you laugh at all your racist jokes.
(Racism isn't funny)
I hate your band, your voice, how you play my favorite songs in that junky car of yours.
(You would have never known about those bands if it wasn't for me)
I hate your shaven face; you look like a child.
(Your outside now reflects your in)
You lied to me, and you cheated
And I scolded you,
just like a mother to her child.
(You fucking cheating, lying bastard)
