    Hmmm...and it's the poetry that's boring, is it?

    I did, and it's of no use. It's like swimming against a current. You can't fight nature, and poetry is naturally boring (to me).

    If you observe that all the chickens you've ever met were dumb, are you going to withhold the judgment that chickens are, in fact dumb, or are you going to persistently IQ-test every chicken out there until you find a smart one? Eventually it doesn't make sense, and it's not an efficient use of time.

    Replacements needed:
    Chickens --> Poems
    Met & IQ-test --> read
    dumb --> boring
    smart --> interesting

    I’m bombarded by poems that do not rhyme
    They’re boring, conceited, and wasteful of time.

    Shitty ass writers who think themselves smart
    Lazily craft this shit they call ‘art.’
    ---
    Truth be told, I actually like poetry. But it depends how good the writer was, what tone of the message is, how long winded they are, and whether or not I give a lumpy peanut decorated flying shit sandwich about what they have to say.

    I heard good poetry and- especially in my English class- I’ve heard extremely bad poetry.

    A: "Distilled liquor"

    Q: "If you could live anywhere in the world, where would it be?"
    A: "Between a starving prostitute and a steak sandwich."

    Q:How would a mathematician capture an elephant?
    A:He would build a cage, step inside, and rename his new location as "outside."

    Yes -- I generally don't enjoy poetry. Although it's true that most of my poetry reading (probably close to all of it) was stuff that I got assigned in school, with the usual "ugh" factor that goes along with that, I really prefer writing that's more to the point.

    I have no comprehension of poetry. It does not make me feel anything. I don't think I can recognize or understand "good" poetry. I don't see the point in it.

    I hated poetry until I came across SAT II Literature in high school.

    The worst mistake people make in political arguments is assuming that the other side is not trying to do the right thing. This simple oversight makes productive conversation nearly impossible.

    I wish I could enjoy poetry, I'm just so apathetic about some things I have to be interested in it first. Maybe in the future.
