We brought more readers

to poetry

although they were brought

kicking and screaming

fiercely resisting the attempt

no no they shouted

not Poetry

that's the worst

we have better things to do

like video games

or coffee at Starbucks

why on earth would we do

poetry when we find

so much more meaning

in silly worthless stuff

like Facebook and Twitter

give us a break

give us social media

or give us death.

Agree with KJ. But every generation has its trends and fashions.
I've just seen a great set of cartoons featuring kids staring at books
and wondering how to power them up!
