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:

Mediocre Condiment
mints

Your salad dressing
 1
Is not a blessing.
 2
It fills,
 3
And then spills
 4
Out of pockets
 5
And sockets
 6
 
 
It’s greasy and grimy,
 7
It’s slippery and slimy.
 8
It’s way too watery
 9
to win the lottery.
 10
 
 
Where are the spices
 11
And the hot pepper slices?
 12
It lacks the seasoning
 13
and proper reasoning.
 14
Your salad dressing
 15
Is quite depressing.
