..who just published his first volume of poetry! Entitled Leaves from my Box Elder, it comes just in time for the 150th anniversary of the driving of the Golden Spike.

Everything is Broken - 02/06/2018
by V. Blake

As I write this, I don't actually know if it will post successfully. Let's see.

Sorry to report that the owner of this website has abandoned it. We owe him eternal gratitude for all the work that went into building it in the first place, and for continuing to foot the bill that keeps it online at all. That said: we apologize for the bugs, but there's nothing we can do to fix them.


CURRENT MEMBERS:
Keep steady backups of your poetry. And everything else--that's just practical advice for a digital world.

In case you didn't realize, private messaging does not work. Your messages are not reaching their recipients.

The moderators can pick poems of the day. That's about it for our powers.


APPLICANTS:
I am sorry. Site errors will prevent me from making you a member. I promise that we'd have welcomed you to this community if we could.

I guess that's it. Hope you're having a good day.

The Pathetic Book of Poetry - 04/08/2014
by V. Blake

Our very own Jody Pratt was cool enough to put together a book of poetry using submissions from Pathetic members. Read more about it in the forums--you can even just click this link if you're feeling lazy, so no excuses.

Thanks go out to Jody for his efforts and to everyone who submitted their work to make it possible. Go get yourself a copy!

Poem of the Day for 10/23/19

The New Day
by Phil P Robson


The new day is dawning
Capsized by the current, compassioned foreboding
The end matters not, but the thirst and the pride
Of empty desires from now ‘till we die

The new day is dawning
No noisy milkman at six in the morning
re-usable glass is expensive, you know
plastics the industry that’s just gonna grow

The new day is dawning
You’ll fall at my feet if I just keep on scoring
Fine fighting men bound for honour and glory
The reward for their sin, the next big story

The new day is dawning
And I don’t need your help, no I won’t heed your warning
Those friends you helped with your mines and guns
Are now killing each other and blaming your sons

The new day is dawning
Alone I remain, Appalachian mourning
Searching for answers at innocence station
Plenty of trains but no destinations
