Does anyone here know of any good poems? I have been searching for ages and they are all so crap. Surely the awesomeness of the pit can show me one? (or two)

E.A. Poe, Robert Browning, Shakespeare, Lord Tennyson, William Blake, Phillip Larkin.

There's a few good poets. Now pick out the ones you like...

Uh, depends on what you're looking for. I can give you some of Jim Morrison's poems, but I doubt that's what you're looking for.
Quote by Teh Forest King
A kid took a fetal pig during pig dissection, put a napkin on it as a cape, wrote "super pig" on it, then threw it out the window onto the greenhouse below, yelling "super pig, blast off!". He failed the pig lab

This is a poem for a kid on the pit
It's definitely going to sound like ****
But I don't have a single care
Because I don't have much time to spare
If you don't like it sue me for rape
Even though we were on the phone and there was no escape
Enough of that back to the poem
I shall now use ideas from around my home
The phone is busy but I want to use it
so instead I shall write a poem solely for the pit
I'm quickly running out of things to write so the next line I shall leave white

Well this poem shall now come to a close
So lets get naked take of our clothes!

Woo!

Hmm that sucks, Ima rewrite

Even though we were on the phone and there was no escape
The t.v. is next to me is blaring
The sound of it is really quite wearing
These rhymes I make may soon get boring
So I wont rhyme for this line
My fingers be now gettin sore
So I'm going to stop because I'm not your poem *****

Ill just stick em both in here!

I prefer haiku.

I tried the searchbar.
It didn't find anything.
Suggest it and die.

Haiku are much fun.
But some of them don't make sense.

There once was a man from Tikrit
Who spent all his time in The Pit
His guitar skills did fade
And he never got laid
But at least he got sigged quite a bit

I've always enjoyed the poem from To Live Is To Die by Metallica

"When a man lies, he murders a part of the world.
These are the pale deaths men must call their lives
All this I cannot bear to witness any longer
Cannot the kingdom of salvation take me home?"
Quote by Fat Lard

Nothing, I guess, just the last time I was, it was for the same reason. Now people are going to to think I'm a sig-slut....

As for the topic, I've been writing some poetry of late, and I asked my sister and her friend and she gave me the names of two poets. Why I can't remember the second one at the moment, the other guy was Leonard Cohen. I enjoyed his works, especially, "I Long To Hold Some Lady", as cliche as it might seem...

For free verse, Walt Whitman's "Leaves of Grass" is the most moving book of poetry I've ever read.

poetry isn't my forté
i don't really know how it works
but sometimes i like to reporté
pitmonkeys acting like jerks.

i realise that this isn't useful,
but i really wanted to join in...
it's better than being abuseful,
internet fights can wear thin.

i'm sorry i can't help you out here,
i'm trying my hardest to think
but the only poets that i hold dear
are those who go home early on friday's, to drink.

Putting his name in lowercase would be disrespecting him. As Norman Friedman said, "Lower case forms when used by the writer for his own name may imply humility, but when used by others for his name may imply condescension."

Just watch "Dead Poet's Society." It's an outstanding movie, and there's some amazing poetry there.

*facepalm*
Cummings signed his name in all-lowercase, the poet may have intended it as a gesture of humility, and not as an indication that it was the preferred orthography for others to use for his name still he remained adamant on keeping his name lowercase
