Right. Ok. I've read my fair share of poems about how poetry sucks/is terrible/is dead.
They are all endowed with a paradoxical feeling that requires the reader to try to figure out what the author is really saying. Does this person really hate poetry? If so, why are they writing it?
In either case, it's obvious the author feels strongly enough about it to write about it.
So you hate poetry. Do you really? No. You hate poetry because poetry is a certain way, i obsessed with obsolete and practically useless vernacular, and/or confined unnecessarily by rhyme, meter, cadence. Now, my first reaction is to say "Wait! It's not all like that!"
But of course you know it isn't.
Though I wish you'd make your point more pleasing to read. And perhaps use punctuation. Not that all poems need punctuation, but the dry, didactic, sentence-based nature of this one simply demands it.
You know what the funny thing is about poetry? We really only empathize with poems that touch a part of us that is already there. I think, for many people, reading poems is just away to find others who have like beliefs, like feelings. Popular poets aren't poets who make people think or introduce new thoughts to them, they are the poets who give them back whatever they are already feeling or wanting to feel and the reader doesn'r really care, in the end, what the form is. There are so few poets who actually care about the -how- these days. They don't want art, they want emotion. They want to feel connected to another person who feels what they feel, no matter the form.
I will say I liked your third stanza. It was very well balanced and metered.
I hate poetry too. It's too bad we're poets, huh?
