not making fun of poetry, just me trying to explain it in the way i understand
have a great day!

the different types of poetry, explained by someone who knows nothing about poetry

October 14, 2020


1. Prose
This one is just were you write a bunch of big words together with irregular capitalizations, and it just sounds really pretty. 
innocence flees Along the eyelashes of The vulnerable

The beauty about the above is that it means nonsense to me, but someone might find a deep meaning in it.

2. Slam Poetry
Smash things while screaming random words.
*aggressively throws chair* "MICROWAVE!"

there you have it, folks. Slam poetry.

3. Rhyming
Take it away, Dr.Suess!

Example: roses are red, violets are blue, um...
               a cow goes... moo?

    I will never ever understand what prose us. So the first poetic piece i wrote, i considered it to be prose and i was like there you are, im a writer! And if i ever throw a chair at someone and shout microwave at my first slam poetry contest, its gonna be your fault. Haha.
