Sarcastic Poetry Helps People Vent

When people think about poetry, many people think of emotional tales. Others think about rhyme schemes, as well as making a big statement. However, poetry can be whatever you make it, and that’s part of what makes it so special. If you want your poetry to make people laugh, it can absolutely serve that purpose. That is just what one woman is doing in Santa Cruz, California.

As reported by the Santa Cruz Sentinel, Jorie Henrickson is the author of “Fukiu: Seventeen Syllables of Sarcasm, Scorn & Spite.” It is basically using haikus to deal with the pet peeves of every day life. Topics in the book include bad drivers, noisy neighbors, human rights, and more. Perhaps best of the all, the book also includes illustrated journaling pages, so that everybody can create their own masterpieces. Which pet peeve will you turn into poetry form?

It doesn’t matter whether you want to write a poem about emotions or sarcasm – just do it! If you don’t feel that you have the creativity to pull things off, there is nothing wrong with getting help from Express Poem. All you need to do is fill out a simple form, and our poetry experts will go to work, crafting something perfect for your situation. Don’t wait another minute to get things started!

C.K. Williams Poetry

Every so often, a community loses an extremely important member. That recently happened to the poetry community, with the passing of C.K. Williams. The poet, who won a Pulitzer Prize for his work, tackled issues ranging from war to poverty. He had a big impact on the poetry world, and his memory should live on. For that, today’s poetry excerpt comes from C.K. Williams’ “Butchers.”

“Thank goodness we were able to wipe the Neanderthals out, beastly things,
from our mountains, our tundra—that way we had all the meat we might need.

Thus the butcher can display under our very eyes his hands on the block,
and never refer to the rooms hidden behind where dissections are effected…” C.K. Williams

As the poetry community moves on, there is even more reason to write out your thoughts. However, if you need help writing a poem, you can ask Express Poem. All you have to do is fill out a simple form, and our poetry experts create something specifically written for your situation. It has never been easier to have your thoughts turned into poetry!
