    Default Any other NTs find poetry BORING??

    Who needs sleeping pills when you've got poems
    It gives me the pulse of garden gnomes

    As NTs, all you guys probably love it
    But I'd like to tell those cliche-kings to shove it

    Tell me I'm not the only one
    who thinks poetry's no fun

    I'm taking a class on writing, so pleeeeaasse
    don't blame me for getting into this messs...zzzzzz....

    Poetry is often so boring,
    That I quickly find myself snoring.
    Probably smoking a joint
    Is why they can't get to the point--
    Which is why I'll continue ignoring.
    “There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.”
    ~ John Rogers

    I sometimes enjoy reading poetry, but I'm terrible at writing it.

    Heh, I write poetry occasionally, but I usually dislike reading it. It's not that there aren't good poems out there, it's just that there's usually something more interesting I could be focusing my attention on.

    Your post reminds me of Mein Kampf.
    Please.

    Is architecture boring?
    It depends on the architecture.
    Is poetry boring?

    Fill the line. It never ends.

    Really, people, poetry is great
    So I just can't understand
    How you can think it boring
    And some of you even start snoring
    When there's Cummings and Eliot;
    Majakovski is a riot;
    Frost is fantastic and Cohen?
    Cohen is just amazing.

    So there.
    Always listen to experts. They'll tell you what can't be done, and why. Then do it.

    Yea I always thought poetry was pretty useless zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

    The worst was when we had to "interprete" poetry in school. Though after a time I had memorized some standard phrases that would kind of fit pretty much any poem.

    But not always so

    Yes. Films, books, art, conversations, buildings and landscapes are also boring. Oh and games too.
