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?

Graduation Poem

Tick Tock Tick Tock
The winding down of the clock
The end is near
Of Our finaly year
and everybody is ready to tear
the milestone a solid rock
that which we use as we walk
to the begining and the end
Friends of the past their shoulders we do lend
No one ever thought this day would come so soon
And now this is the last time we will see each other in many a moon
It's time to part ways
remember the past days
It's the time of graduation
Spread your congradulation
I will miss you all
May all your hopes and dreams never fall
