What is Good Poetry? 
WHAT! 
How dare you!
Blue blue blue,
I love you

I don’t like sexually explicit language
Or profanity.
WHAT!
This is insanity!

What is good poetry?
WHAT!
Blue blue blue
I love you
I’ll say what I like.
How dare you!

I don’t like occultism
Or vulgarity
WHAT!
Surely poetry is every aspect of humanity!

What is good poetry?
WHAT!
Blue blue blue
I love you
Why gag me.
What’s wrong with you!

I don’t like Personal attacks or battles
WHAT!
My God please set me free from these shackles

What is good poetry?
WHAT!
Blue blue blue
I love you
Please let me speak.
I should be allowed to say what I want to!

Hateful Expressions!
Hateful Expressions!
Hateful Expressions!
How else will I express the fact that:
“I should have killed her!”
I should have!

What is good poetry?
WHAT!
Blue blue blue
I love you
Get out of your cage.
Jesus H Christ surely you have to!

AHHHH RACISM:
I love you more than words can express,
You make my heart wither like a dying rose.
