It may astound you to learn that almost everyone likes poetry...including you. You like songs, right? Whether it's country or rock or hip-hop, those lyrics often have a poetic sense to them, and sometimes even imagery that grabs you despite your proclamation of "I don't like poetry." For instance? Try these:
"...the nights rolled by like headlights shining on a lonesome strip of tar..."
"...I wished I could forget that I used to live..."
Right? Now try this snippet of science fiction poetry:
The Luddite robot
has trouble functioning
in our modern world,
spends most of his time
trying to rebut the evidence
from his own sensors.
Psst! There's more inside...
