Round V – The 1030 Poetry Selection

Check out the poems of round number five.
Submissions still open until 31.03.2014

But they never said it would burn; those fuckers are on fire
There’s a light at the end; even if the tunnel is long

Usually. The quiet is broken only by

Thank you again for all the submission so far. (Submissions still open until 31.03.2014)

 

 

Poem 1 – The Ponce

A problem is found in the way he strides,

In the way he strolls with paces of pride –

Speaking errands compared to a stone-heavy sack

That a war-bound soldier wears on his back.
