This is an anti-poem
It is not a poem
I refuse to admit that it’s a poem

I deny this is a poem
I deny being in denial
Don’t argue with me, this is my anti-poem

This is my poem
I refuse to admit it’s a poem
But then, just because you ignore something doesn’t mean it isn’t there.

Anti-Poems don't have as much flow because they are evidently, not poems.

Gil: I would like you to read my novel and get your opinion. 
Ernest Hemingway: I hate it. 
Gil: You haven't even read it yet. 
Ernest Hemingway: If it's bad, I'll hate it. If it's good, then I'll be envious and hate it even more. You don't want the opinion of another writer. 

Niiiiiiiiiiice, love all the contradictions, and love the last line ^_^. Flow could've been a bit better, but that's just how I am lol. Good job :)

“I'd rather see a sermon than hear one any day; I'd rather one should walk with me than merely tell the way: The eye's a better pupil and more willing than the ear, fine counsel is confusing, but example's always clear.” -Edgar Guest

Holy cow, endless, how can someone who writes so awesomly ever have something so normal as writters block? This is good! my favorite stanza is the second, and my favorite line is "don't argue with me, this is my antipoem."

"And when I'm gone, just carry on, don't mourn
Rejoice every time you hear the sound of my voice
Just know that I'm looking down on you smiling
And I didn't feel a thing, So baby don't feel my pain
Just smile back"-Eminem

Awesome.  Short, but good.  My kind of poem. :)

Thank you, that was the goal. Contradictions, short, and entertaining.
