  1. Seriously this is a contender for Chelsea’s worst poetry contest. You have to enter now Charles, there’s an onus on you now.

  2. You have spoken for so many of us who also hate writing poetry. I denied it for so many years. I didn’t say anything for fear that people would judge me. But you have given me the courage to finally come out of the caesura.

      1. And I’m like, “What the heck is meter? If it rhymes, that’s good. That’s a good poem if it rhymes…..” I follow a couple of blogs that are poetry based. And a lot don’t rhyme – so, you know, I’m kind of lost. I guess I am at the preschool level of poetry. I still like the rhymes of This Old Man or B-I-N-G-O.
