Today's Great Undead Poets Poem by Joseph James Breunig 3rd

Today's Great Undead Poets

Rating: 4.5

Today’s great undead poets,
awash in the Internet sea,
seek to fill the void of sensible emptiness
of our cyberspace world.
Following the heroic tradition of Man,
these daring individuals look to gain acceptance
through the expression of concepts.
Mirroring the virility and vitality of Life,
in defiance of critical naysayers,
the blankness of virtual paper
is scribbled upon with hurt, hope and ideals.
Writing styles and topics,
whether expressed in romanticized language
or the coarseness of profanity,
are brilliantly reflected in individualized glory
and authors bask in the personal satisfaction of achievement.
In the ever continuing flow of poetic thought,
today’s great undead poets
find treasures in the discovery of self.

Terrific poem, Joe. Nicely phrased, indeed. However, I think few of us, whether great or not great, find much solace from the small rafts like PH which purportedly prevent us from drowning in the Internet Sea in which we are, as you say, awash.
