Poetry

As a general rule, I don't like poetry. It's not really that I don't like poetry as it is I don't like bad poetry, and most poetry is complete rubbish. There's lots of good poetry out there, but finding it is rarely easy. It seems that many people study different kind of poetry, make a poem that conforms to those rules, and then they call it art because the followed some predefined rules.
Of course, art doesn't really work like that. Artshould be clever and create nice visuals. Each consumer of art should come away with something different.
Most artist fail at creating art that is worth its time. This holds especially true with poetry.
