You want to write a poem?

You want to write a poem?
I'll tell you how it's done
Just throw around some rhyming words
Then add a random pun

You want to write a poem?
You want a lot of views?
Just take a famous subject
Maybe something from the news

You want to write a poem?
It won't even take a while
Just search some famous quotes up
'You'll find that life is worthwhile"
                                                                                                                                                 (Charles Chaplin)
You want to write a poem?
Well, you know what they say,
Just steal somebody else's words,
Change them to fit your way,

You want to write a poem?
Well how hard can it be?
Take your favorite lyrics,
And take them into custody,

You want to write a poem?
Because you think its easy,
Well that, my fellow writer
makes me feel quite queasy

You want to write a poem
My friend, take my advice
You needn't try
If views are all that's in your mind

Oops that one didn't rhyme
Just change that word to rice
It ain't that big a crime

Is it only me who is annoyed by all these poems?
Which are made just for the views
With cringe worthy rhyming
Sarcasm is my friend, lets just leave it at that...actually let's not...
I haven't been on Da for a while...but...aaargh! The pain of reading a poem in which the writer doesn't know what he/ she is writing about!!!

No names being mentioned...
WHY???
WHYYYYYY?
No, I'm not a perfect poet, I have made my poet sins but...never have I written for views, and poem writing isn't easy, you can't schedule yourself to write a poem! You can't say to your watchers:
I will update once a week
Because there will be months you write nothing
And months you are a human poem machine
But GNGNGNngng- that's what I do (along with a hand spasm) when I read a bad poem (sometimes the poem is my old poem but ah well, nobodies perfect, unless you are nobody, then you are perfect, but if you are not nobody, you are not perfect)
Again I ask the world....WHYYYYYYY!


On a lighter note, hope you enjoy, and if you do, fave, and if you agree, comment

I have some strange news, I write poems and stories for views.
To suffer over a choppy prose and not show it, stinks like a rotten rose.

Unlike other hobbies in which you can tell if you are doing well, writing forces us to
show our work to others even if it is good or does smell.

Can you elaborate why writing for views makes you irate?

Hope you view me well for posting this bit of doggerel.

Ah hello! Ans sorry if I took so long in replying.
If writing for views means having no connection whatsoever with the poem and knowing that you are just writings things that people will agree with then that's what really bugs me.

I hope I answered your question and if not just reply saying so! I was waiting for someone to ask that seeing as I wanted to explain. Sometimes the audience has to think in others shoes and see what the poet means!

Sometimes I don't use rhymes, because the idea may be too difficult to make rhymes from it.
You expect from random poets to put their souls into the poems...

This is an intriguing piece in the question you arrise. Its pretty true, there are those out there who do this. Or on occasion I've found a piece that I thought sounded really deep, but when inquiring to the writer about it, they say they basically just wrote it without any emotional connection to the piece, and at those times I feel almost betrayed by them. Perhaps thats a strong choice of word, but does it make sense?

This is exactly what I sometimes think about some poems or stories I see, so I guess I can relate to theis 100%
I tried many times to make my own poem, I thought it was easy! But Jesus, it's so hard to make the rhymes correctly and all the things, so I really just do them when I feel like it, because they aren't well done, after all ;v;

The first verse, I'll admit,
Hits close-to-home for me.
A pun is half the fun,
And rhymes come easily.

Wordplay makes me laugh;
Eye rhymes make me cringe.
When it comes to reading poems,
Quite frequently, I'll binge.

But while I hold that poets-
And sculptors, painters, authors-
All do their work while hoping,
That it will be seen by others...  

Views alone are not enough,
To drive one to write well.
The effort, passion- must be there!
In short: your point is swell.


...

I don't even know.

I don't know what writing for views is (Writing for views as in "writing something powerful or supposed to especially in title to attract people to look a piece of work " ? ).

I do know one or two things though :
1. Most of the time, posting stuff on DA means we do want some people to view...
2. Some DA members are desperate to spread their work : groups, faves, ...
3. The power of groups is so bad that I did join some of them, because I wanted to share some point of views (again with this word ???!!!) even if I don't consider myself a poet. And sometimes, I do have some people on my gallery (so much more than before).

Well, to sum up, I don't know if it's bad or not, I do understand your point of view (Yuhu once again!), but to me, it's just ... something about communities and social networks... You get some good and a lot of bad. Well, to you, these one are "the bad". Maybe it could be worse ?

ON A MORE RELATED SUBJECT, I did like your rythm and musicality in this piece ;)

I agree 100% with you. If you want views, write about feminism, homossexuals rights, teenager angst, love, how a girl is 'special' and different from the others... It can be badly writen, but will reach the front page.

Seriously, it's not you who have to write what they like. They have to like what you write.

Poems aren't meant to be for attention. I use them as tiny explosions of how I feel and what I think. Well, and for fun, because poems can be quite childish if you want them to be. XD

You want to write a poem?
Give these words some heed
Write the words as if you know 'em
And fill some emotional need

XDDD okay, that one was dumb, but I think I sent my own little message across. XD

Want a peom?
Write with your heart

I totally agree, a poem is a powerful way to say something.
Bad poetry is like using a megaphon to just say "kwak kwak", printing giant posters just reading "I have nothing to say".

When you have no self esteem, it's nice to write poems for people to say your worth something.

Just because you use Da, for one thing, doesn't mean how other people use Da is wrong.

So I write poems, I write them in a rush...I don't want them to be my crush
I enjoy them for the moment, because they mean nothing to me
The view are what keeps me coming back, it's like a boost of Self Esteem for Free

And... why not... if I can get pleasure out of it, then it has served it's purpose.

Your poems although you enjoy them... aren't getting you anything... you will never find it in English class... and You write them for fun... so you too are just wasting your time... any Annoying me... with you Bitch argument

Now that your nice and angry with me... comment on my Bad poems.. and see what you hate about them

Maybe they're using Haku or a freestyle art of writing buuuut for me, I really really like funny or fancy poems with rhyming words (one of 'em are limericks!). It's what differ it from prose.
That said, I like it. Cool poem  :shakespeare:  :clap: :clap: Applause Clap

While i do understand what you want to show, it's not a DA thing, except that in the real word, people write book only to get money which is worse, imo.
I wish to believe that bad poetry in DA is not written only to get views ( there is easier ways, really ) but because people just... like poetry, and no matter how ignorant they are about the rules, they want to try it :)

Your "poem" is very second degrès and i like it a lot :D Humor and sarcasm is the only way that kind of thing can be made without upsetting people, i think :) Good job ( and nice rhymes ;) )

Rubbish, if the words were true the moment they were carved into the paper, a sin of cliche may be forgiven.

And honestly now, can't a sweetly spoken word be so much sweeter than a plain box of chocolate?

Well, if it is bad or not it's not for me to judge, but my point is that if you meant what you wrote it doesn't really matter, the gesture is sweet and lovely and that's what matters most.

Or in layman's terms, i'm a hopeless romantic and i think what you did was very nice. Don't berate yourself so much.

Interesting. I am often frustrated that my art isn't good enough, and I get wrapped up in how important it is to be a genius. So, to hear about how others do things carelessly for simple misinterpretation of greatness, surprises me; somewhat, at least. Although, I do often believe that my writing should be easy, but it's not a thought that's prominent, it's in the back of my mind, as if I've learned it long ago. Complete awareness is impossible, I suppose.
