I watch every day what you are doing as a society. While you sit by and watch your Constitution being torn away from you, you willfully eat poisoned food, buy manufactured products no one needs and turn an uncaring eye away from millions of people suffering and dying all around you … Perhaps I should let you all in on a little secret. No one likes you in the future. This time period is looked at as being full of lazy, self-centered, civic-ally ignorant sheep. Perhaps you should be less concerned about me and more concerned about that.

Why do I like books more than computers?
Giles nailed it.
WHAT IS POETRY? POETRY IS YOU
Poetry is much much more than all of the definitions, theories or explanations that you read or hear about everyday. Poetry is not just a form, a quote or one or two popular poets or pop stars in the media. Poetry is not hip hop or gangsta rap, slam or new formalism, gay or straight, white or black, dead or alive. Poetry does not belong either to the streets or the academics.
Poetry is not always a love song. Poetry is not always about the rain or nature, mountains or castles. Poetry is neither happy nor depressed, a villain or a hero, a lover or a friend.
Poetry is merely poetry for poetry’s sake. But the words are sacred, something sacred which we share.
Poetry is a state of consciousness and the mind.
Poetry is all of history and is the history of being.
Poetry is all of us
Poetry is you.
