Ok, Bad poetry? Yes and No.
I'll start with no. Reason:......
I don't think it's fair to say one way or another if poetry is bad.
It's a matter of one's opinion!
Who's writen it...
What are they writing about.... etc etc.
Then there is the rhyme, meter etc, that some people use to judge a poem with.
Ok, that's fair I guess, but did the reader focus more on weather it flowed well or not, or did they really "read" the piece, pick up what the author was trying to convey?
I have to agree with Sharon o this one....
What one person likes, another may hate and so on.
Ok, as far as yes goes: This is just MY personal opinion.
I've read poetry that I had no idea what the athor was talking about. I've read poetry that made no sense what so ever.
The poems that are choppy and jump around a lot.....
Then again, maybe that was the authors intention!....
So, who am I to judge one's poetry? I'm not, not at all.
The only time I will say a poem is BAD, is if it glorifies something aweful and hidious!
Like murder or rape. I call that BAD!
So Sven, to answer your question.....For the most part...NO!
