poetry soup epic fail


Blog Posted:2/20/2013 8:41:00 AM
So three years ago some poets on here try to bring slam to the masses. the soup at the time decided it wasnt worth all the drama and banned it from the form list. Now i see there is a whole section dedicated to the art of slam. Epic fail. perhaps the soup should hire an executive that has a little bit of vision and perception instead of one that flip flops and jumps on the band wagon. Not that i believe you have the ability to but you should look into forming a team from the poetry soup that you can send to the national poetry slam event. I mean by now you should atleast have entertained the idea or looked into it from the national slam site. oh wait no vision will its never to late change and go figure it out.  And duh you should probably put slam back as a form and remove it from the catagory since the placement there makes no since whatsoever. EPIC FAIL

    Not good at slam, maybe because I don't like rap and they seem so similar. Mostly, I do not go for the in-your-face assault form of poetry. What others do, is fine, it is just not me.

    Hi Nathan, maybe I'll be the only one to agree with you. I think that slam should be a form, and not a category. Well it was nice for the soup to add it as a source.. now that's interesting if you ask me. and why now, after all these years. ""it's mocking me nate... JK" anyways~ A team of poets trying out for the competition sounds nice. xox~PD
