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:

Shit Monster
devilsbelboy

Shit Monster, he's riding on the waves,
 1
that are drenched in blood an' piss
 2
The Shit Monster, has got a twinkle,
 3
of some grand 'ol whiskey's bliss
 4
I'm coming from yesterday,
 5
as tommorow has already been told
 6
I'm banking here on the River of Blood
 7
an' taking a pose that is so bold
 8
 
 
Shit Monster,
 9
His teeth are sinking in
 10
Shit Monster,
 11
My baby, has done left again
 12
 
 
Shit Monster, Shit Master of your soul,
 13
that dangle in right in front of you
 14
The Shit Monster, has claimed Boss,
 15
past an' future, he always knew
 16
I'm coming from the empty womb,
 17
that was left, way back there
 18
I'm banking on Hope, even Love
 19
My Secrect Places, they are bare
 20
 
 
Shit Monster,
 21
His teeth are sinking in
 22
Shit Monster,
 23
My baby, has done left again
 24
 
 
The shit is boiling in the afternoon sun,
 25
My mind is ready, and my body is ready,
 26
A Soul, ready to bang to a drum
 27
 
 
Shit Monster,
 28
His teeth are sinking in
 29
Shit Monster,
 30
My baby, has done left again
 31
