If you did, can you share yours?

Here's my latest one:

 

Philosophy:
Define insanity:
Having to do every drug on the planet
Before you can find your sanity

Poem: Who Am I?
Title: Where am I?
Answer: 5hitting a magical rainbow chasing my own pot of gold while Rocketing off to Mars while listening to Freebird and telling myself to do more LSD because that just means listen to the stair way to heaven, and just snort that Velociraptor to go back to Jurassic park.

The full poem would take you a lifetime to read, sadly.

Yes, I enjoy it because it packs a punch into  a small amount of text and is fun to read.  It is like writing song lyrics.

Never been a fan of writing my own poetry.

Like most angsty teenagers, I wrote quite a bit in high school and college. Some of it is decent, some of it is pure garbage.

I can't do poems. I'd like to, but I'm terrible at writing them.

More of a short story guy

I like to write poems.

 

More like I like to write paragraphs that rhyme, most of them don't have metaphors.
