No One Reads Poems Anymore

No one reads poems anymore

No one reads poems anymore

They caption

and hashtag

instant like and reaction

No one reads poems anymore

we DM and

we Snap

who even cares about chat

No one reads poems anymore

A fundamental flaw

unless it’s a quote

or motivational mantra

of course

No one reads poems anymore

So what if I still like them?

Maybe you suck at poetry

But

it makes me happy to write it

you can’t change the world by just being like it

No one reads poems anymore

But

that doesn’t mean we shouldn’t still write them.

Does it?
