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:

Stopping Distance
ShaggyDude

Start the game, the rules are understood
 1
It's all the same, the could, the should, the would
 2
The path is clear and shown
 3
The schedule's set in stone
 4
Don't you know it's good and so well known
 5
 
 
Shift the lane, the exit's coming soon
 6
I'll ascertain, we're shooting for the moon
 7
When you're in the zone
 8
The eye of the cyclone
 9
Don't you know monsoons are so well known
 10
 
 
Open up the flower inside
 11
Let your passion take a ride
 12
It's only the only life you're living
 13
So live it right
 14
 
 
Don't you know persistance is the guide
 15
Our stopping distance shrinks 'til we collide
 16
My eyes inside will turn
 17
Until the time you learn
 18
Don't you know that I'm returning home
 19
Don't you know that's good and so well known
 20
