Anyone fancy rewriting this article completely in poetry?

Wow this article sucks. It's just a collection of overdone negative observations on poetry that hold no comedic value. So, to whoever wrote this: I like poetry, and I don't care if you don't. Go ahead and make fun of it. That's the point of Uncyclopedia. But do so in a manner that mirrors the other articles, which were so carefully constructed by their authors to be masterpieces of subtlety and hidden attacks. Someone really needs to rewrite this--I would, but I'm a poet.

Well I think we need poets to write this - someone who knows how to make the words sound like poetry (where the words are stressed, etc)--Zodiac 09:32, 15 May 2008 (UTC)

Once more, with feeling[edit]

Wow this article sucks.
It's just a collection
of negative reflection,
and observations
on poetry that in the comedic relations
only bring forth

So, to whoever wrote
this: I like poet
ry, and I don't care
now beware
I don't care if you don't.
Bust my rap cause
I know you won't.
That's the point of Uncyclopedia.

But do so in a way
that makes me want to stay
or stray
and bray the other articles
you bitch
were so carefully constructed
and then were interucted

the shy
the authors
of subtlety and hidden attacks.
I'll be back
an me name is rippin' Jack

Someone really needs
The weeds
the bollocks to rewrite
with all his might

I would
I probably could
but hey man I'm a poot.

Much better, no ? -- di Mario 18:34, 27 December 2006 (UTC)

Another Try[edit]

If you had met God,
would that make you a joke?
Perhaps that would be best
considering the flimsy soul.

Some are stronger
these days. There are always
older spirits, teachers
who came before.

If I give a feeling,
it might be lost
in some mystical language
meant to raise the dead.

We each have one more chance
to come back to ourselves,
to find a way to live
without ever visiting the ocean.

Some unrequested Advice[edit]

I would suggest getting rid of the Newfie poem, and replacing the image of Edgar Allen Poe, maybe with Image:Angst.jpg or a similar goth/emo/angsty pic. I think this should be featured, but I still feel that its a little too "rambling" at the moment. By rambling, I mean it has the feeling that its covering loosely related material, in an attempt to shoe-horn punchlines in, and not really sticking to the topic. And to add insult to injury, this article has enough funny material without the "rambling"/"shoe-horned jokes". --Mnbvcxz 04:19, 18 January 2009 (UTC)

Good enough. I personally would have went further, but then somebody else might not have liked a more edited version. Moving the Newfie poem did take alot of the "shoe-horned" feeling out of it, probably almost as much as trimming it down. --Mnbvcxz 05:07, 18 January 2009 (UTC)
