That is so ridiculous that I am thoroughly amused.
BAD / RAP works better as a poem, I think, than this one, though, in part because it doesn't stretch as much grammatically to make sense, and seems to have more of a point to it. This is amusing though, a nice silly piece.
 — semaj

What fun!
 — unknown

I can't believe that this only got two comments!  I love how you only used four letter words throughout.  I think this is brilliant and took a lot of creativity.  I think I was at that party....
 — amy

agree with semaj
 — Ananke

I love this. Absolutely love it.
 — Cella

ahahahah LOVE is a FOUR letter WORD all right, this is an awesome and original poem - it reminds me of the book "Neuromancer" because the Dixie Flatline (a construct) hacks this girl's time display which is chipped into her optical nerve, and puts a bunch of short words in clipped phrases, all caps, to communicate with her- also the huge bun dilemma makes me wanna read it again, ha good replay value - [10]
 — unknown

oops that was me
 — stilltime

THEN THEY WERE LIKE WHOA is hilarious haha
 — stilltime

Hard as hell to read and I am now seeing, funny, but damn this is funny. Nice work.
 — wendz

I really like this style.  I didn't care for the poem itself very much, though.  For some reason, I kept thinking it was going to turn very serious, and yet it was lighthearted.  not bad, just not my taste.

Yes! it's much easier to read.  The reader doesn't get frustrated.  Lots of us have eye problems!

When your eyes get fatigued, you just stop reading.

Hey, but I gave you a 9!
