Yea the light poem is pretty gimmicky. It's nothing really original. When I do poetry, I try to be simple and funny. I never really go out of my way to be flowery. I always try to tell the best possible truth or satire I can. I want to have fun with this. I don't want to read a drag of a poem, I just want to read something fun. That's how I personally looking at creating and performing poetry if that makes sense.
