Poetry
fucking poetry
People write poetry?
In what country,
in what language,
are people doing this?
Pouring their
hearts and souls
onto paper
for the literary
amusement of strangers

You
extroverted
bleeding cunts
do you actually think
anybody cares
about your
pretty garden words
and convoluted statements
of fact
in fact
all lies and emotive
crap
I'd rather take
to the garbage than
leave to fester
in sight

You deep
philosophers,
you
feelers and thinkers
of modern existence,
you
shut the fuck up
and buy me a cheeseburger
