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:

the people's confused watch dog
bear

the watchdog
 1
has been put
 2
on a short leash
 3
and has had
 4
a muzzle
 5
placed firmly
 6
over its
 7
vicous mouth
 8
 
 
its new master
 9
teaching this
 10
old dog
 11
many updated
 12
tricks that
 13
astound the
 14
public
 15
 
 
you can see
 16
him down
 17
at the park
 18
pushing the
 19
innocent
 20
children back
 21
and forth on
 22
the swing
 23
of public opinion
 24
