Respect the nerds, they will be your boss someday- The Computer Guy.
The best is yet to come and baby won't it be fine- A band.
Defiant is the best word in the dictionary!

I hate poetry.  (I really do.)
So why do I it?
I write it because it’s something new.
And only part of the time, does it make me want to spit.

The art is indecisible-
maybe a gift I don’t possess.
Or maybe it’s just unlikable,
created to cause people misery and stress.

And if I don’t have the gift,
I guess I’ll live.
But if poetry is an invention to mess with my mind and make it drift,
Then no, I just won’t give.

Poetry is frustrating,
the ends and the outs and the rhymes and the patience-
I don’t have a patience so trusting.
And in the dark spaces of in between lines, I am left with solace.
