Can a Poet Lie? Judge for Yourself...

"Poetry is lame."
"Poetry is for losers."
"You're still in that class?"
This blog has low readership,
since many friends don't get it.

Revel in romance.
Love is good for fairy tales,
but to last the night
just give me a romancer,
a guy who speaks my language.

Haikus aren't poems?
I'd like to see you write some
that show your spirit.

Tankas are cheating
because haikus can't contain
what I need to say?
Sometimes, fourteen syllables
really makes all the difference.

Yay comments!! Constructive criticisms are most definitely welcome here, and some profanity will be allowed, just so any posts containing such will not make Alicia come off as a hypocrite. Merry Commentating! :D
