All girls should have a poem

written for them even if

we have to turn this God-damn world

upside down to do it.

- Richard Brautigan

Definitely. We should all write poems about the people we like, or at least draw little pictures of them. I imagine that there are very few people who wouldn't find that sweet, even if they are nonchalant on the outside.

...unfortunately the average poem writing skill is rather low.

I say this, knowing mine is below average =P

Seriously though, poems are delightful, but bad poems can be extraordinarily painful.

as cheesy as this sounds, i think it's the thought that counts. if people just wrote what they thought, i would appreciate it, even if it made me wince. and if all else fails, they should just try and rhyme. rhyming poems always puts a smile on my face, no matter how terrible the rhyme. but that's just me..

I agree with Sunni, 'liver. Most poems are horrible, but it is thought that counts.
Although i have to say, drawing little pictures of them is rather disturbing, it's like you're trying to capture them on a page so you can rub at them all night.

i definitely agree!
sometimes, when the poem is terrible its even better than ones that are perfect
terrible poems are quirky and funny and lovable
especially terrible rhyming poems

also, maybe 'ric has a point, but i think if the picture is a little cute, intentionally adorable and funny one, then its great :)
