Whenever I walk I am poetry in motion. When I sit down, I am not poetry in motion.

poetry is most certainly not dead. If you can only find in dry librarys thats a shame.
Simon Armitage is a poet who is funny worldly and thoughtful. Theres a poem of his 'killing time' a part of which deals with the columbine high scool shootings. I think it may be the best thing written in this country in the last 25 years poetry or otherwise.
Cope has done some terrific stuff, (Wendy not Julian)
and yes you're right there are some fantastically poetic lyrics, Difford and tillbrook possibly the best english songwriters for years, some of the artic monkeys stuff shows promise and i think there is a distinct possibility that school children 200 years from now will be studying MM's lyrics.
So no poetry isnt dead, its just like people who cycle in the gutter, we dont always notice. can anybodys life be made worse by having poetry in it?
With that thread title I though it would be a clip of Vicky riding her bike!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

That's because people are too lazy to read your proper stories

This is just not witty,
In fact it is quite shitty.
Your posts are just not fun,
Especially the ones about your bum!
