       Distilled sarcasm

    Non-Americans might have problems with this one. If someone can't drive we say, "What did you get your license from a Cracker Jack Box?" Cracker Jack is a snack made of caramel-coated popcorn and peanuts with a prize in the box. Alternately, we say he/she got it at Sears (or Sears Roebuck, the full name of a department store). Sears sells darn near everything now, and they used to sell even more. You could even buy kits with which you could build your own home.

    What would I do if my poetic license were revoked?
    Sit in my room and cry like the ugliest child in the world.
    I got it from a Cracker Jack box anyway
    though I was hoping for a baseball card.
    It must have restrictions anyway
    because poetry should rhyme,
    be sprinkled with violets and roses,
    puppies, lovers, and sunsets,
    but four lines and a single metaphor
    do not a poem make.
    If the gods of verse take it away,
    I'll get another at Sears
    where they're in a clearance bin
    beside the car batteries
    at $1.99.

      Wow. I'm such a kid so I loved this. It was sort of a "So what?! Take my poetic license. Do it! I'll just get another one at Sears." haha Made me laugh, made my day, loved it.

      great poem. made me smile. unfortunately a lot of people have premade opinions about how a poem should look like. but I never cared for that (I'm not one for rules). anyway I like how you brought in some lines about the typical cliché happy sappy hallmark card love poem with violets and roses, Puppies, lovers, and sunsets. fits great in there. and the end was good, too. only one thing (I have to nit pick on something cause all I said until now is praise): you've got two lines really close that end with 'anyway'. okay, nit picking done. great poem.

      Lmfao! I offically love you... this is a great piece and yeah... you make a good point I think about how most people seem to think that poetry has to be a Certain way and include a certain thing and blah it bothers me but I like this muchly! so a favorite it makes! hah

      A sonnet's not a sonnet
    without a couplet
    but a poem it would be
    whether rhymed verse
    or free.
    Perhaps when I die
    I will bequeath to thee
    an endowment for
    the Anarchistic School
    of Poetry-
    license free!

      Poetic license is a winner. Especially since you can get them at Sears for 1.99. I cannot get one because I am an alien originally hatched from an egg. I don't care, I'm going to write anyway and break all the rules along the way, isn't that what art is for? nansofast
