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?

The Great American Slut (Revised)
devilsbelboy

Hands up, here She comes,
 1
Down the ivory covered streets
 2
Put your hands up boy,
 3
For The Great American Slut
 4
 
 
She's been spotted in Congress
 5
She's been spotted in the streets
 6
She's been known to slide down the pole
 7
And she's hiding in your closet
 8
 
 
Hands up, here She comes
 9
From the depths of all fears
 10
She's got cash an' a sexy car
 11
And she's the one who steers
 12
She's not here, just for fluff
 13
Hands up, here She comes
 14
The Great American Slut
 15
 
 
She's been spotted in your dreams
 16
She's been spotted in the day
 17
She's been known to wreck a soul or two
 18
And she has rolled in sticky hay
 19
 
 
Hands up, here She comes
 20
From the childhood you forgot to forget
 21
She's got the memories
 22
that you are willing to give up and bet
 23
Children sometimes are forgotten,
 24
when their parent's have split
 25
Hands up, here She comes
 26
The Great American Slut
 27
 
 
She's been spotted in the crowd
 28
She's been spotted on the t.v.
 29
She's been known to fuck on camera
 30
And she digs on the way she be
 31
 
 
Hands up, here She comes
 32
From the bottom of your ocean
 33
To the banks of the Filthy River
 34
The fish rock on to the motion
 35
And the eggs have all gone bust
 36
Hands up, here She comes
 37
The Great American Slut
 38
 
 
She's been spotted in your dreams
 39
She ain't nuthing like your fantasy
 40
She's a nightmare to behold
 41
And she's promisng things nasty
 42
 
 
Hands up, here She comes
 43
From the memory of your past
 44
To the Present State of Things
 45
The moment will not even last
 46
And the eggs are now hushed
 47
Hands up, here She comes
 48
The Great American Slut
 49
