Bad Poetry


Poetry’s the chance you take
walking along a precipice of thought.

On good days, when your words connect,
you land safe and sound.

Most days, you die.

When you see a poem all bruised and beat-up,
know that someone has died.

    Sorry to disappoint you but I don’t think bad poetry is something you’re capable of. Even if you work hard at it!

      But it is a lot of fun, Ash!
