Everything is Broken - 02/06/2018

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.
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.
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!

The site has been moved to a new server which should address the ongoing login issues for the past week or so.

Well, the extended contest is over, and we have our results! Congratulations to our winners, and a sincere thanks to all the participants!

Everyone else! (Sorry. The submissions were too few to warrant runner-up selections!)
There wasn't a huge pool of submissions this time around, but all the ones we got were awesome. Thanks again everybody.
Poem of the Day for 05/24/18
Kin To The Devil
by Hartwell Davis
Kin to the Devil cause hes colored red
Kin to the Devil all the white men said.
The injuns were hated by the white man kind
If you killed an injun, they say that is fine
If you kill an injun - thats one devil less
Theyre kin to the Devil - thats real brother-ness.
If the injuns get you, youd be better off dead
They will stake you out on a lively ant bed
First comes the torture then they cut your throat
The buzzards will eat you and thats all she wrote.
Of course, they were cruel, they were wrong, I guess
But we took their land and could have cared less
Lets remember each act and the reason why
Because were kin to the Devil, you and I.
