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:

Mummy's Boys

My mother fries up in the cookery pot.
 1
She has three sons and they don’t know what.
 2
One sucks his thumb, the other plays downstairs,
 3
the last dances on the lawn in ladies underwear.
