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.
Poem of the Day for 02/15/19
Parker meets Prada
by Laurie Duncan
There are shoes that, when purchased,
one expects need breaking in.
So shiny, chic with all the fixings,
one can bear some blistering skin
and walk no few tender miles
until our tough Achilles win.
Yet some--of a flashy sort--
grow but worse for all we try
and, on closer acquaintance,
we know won't yield until we die.
Shine gone, we chuck them bin-ward.
So's life, my dear--goodbye.
