13 REASONS FOR BAD POETRY: PLEASE PICK OUT WHICH FITS YOU OR ADD YOUR OWN
I harbour no prejudice at all
against any poetry,
including colloquial poems
and lyrical expressions of feeling.
Writing good or bad poetry is not important.
Anyway we are all brothers!
I don’t write for fame or profit, I am a pure amateur.
Good or bad, cow parts or not, wait for history’s judgment!
Just keep quiet and stick to your writing, who needs to fight and find fault all the time?
“Your circles are messy!”
Poetry isn’t the only thing, I have to live!
If he had not died, poetry would not be in this state.
I write for eternity.
I am still learning, please esteemed teachers, point out my faults!
I also try my hand at this shit.
Quality, not quantity! One poem beats hundreds of others.
How can you think you bastards could ever write a good poem?
