I didn't have anything special planned for today's entry, but recently I'd been thinking about some of the more cringeworthy poems I've written over the years. What? Of course I'm going to post them here for all the world to see! It's an exercise in confidence. What are people gonna do, cyberbully me for being a crappy poet? Ha! what a joke.
The following two poems both hail from late 2014. They're pretty bad. Please don't laugh.
A MINECRAFT POEM
The sun shines from the east
Upon the sleeping earth
Though you wear no shoes
Your feet feel as such
Because they are calloused
From ages atop this dry soil
For years, you toiled
You created; you destroyed
Yet there still lies uncharted territory
Beyond the horizon
And across the sea
Your destination is upon you
And as the thick blackness floods your lungs
You fire at the sky
Determined to find the End
For your own glory
But though you had slain her
She is not truly gone
Her seed you bear
As a reminder and a hope
That one day
The fiery square will set
With her offspring by your side
Will carry on
Until there is nothing
Meh. The next one is even worse.
ODE TO A GARTER SNAKE
Be still, my friend, though thy movements are graceful,
Consequences come from the things unseen.
Keep a watchful eye, lest they be detected
In the midst of thy sagebrush serene.
Close thy mouth and hide thy teeth;
Keep away from thine enemies.
But O, my true friend, once they are gone,
Forgive them for their monstrosities.
The hatred of mankind cannot be contained,
But alas, I have my duty.
Without thee I go, but in my heart,
I still proclaim thy beauty.
*SIGH* Just... ugh. Please don't write like this, folks.
I'll close out the night with a haiku. I don't know when this is from, or if it is even my own work.
Frankly though, I doubt the author would care.
This is a haiku I wrote
