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:

Thales
crutch

Thales, as history does clearly tell,
 1
a Greek Philosopher, roamed hill and dell,
 2
in search of answer to end the strife;
 3
"What is it; what is the thing called life?
 4
What is this ever-present stuff?
 5
A simple solution would be enough."
 6
 
 
One dark night, a Phili-O friend in tow,
 7
across the midnight country, he did go;
 8
and plunged into the local well.
 9
"Eureka!" he cried, as lungs began to swell.
 10
"Not paying attention as I ought'er;
 11
I've found it; the basic stuff is Water."
 12
