... since poetry hasn't changed in 30 years.
In addition, consider this from page 36 in the PSi Handbook:Quote from: PSi HandbookSampling.
It is acceptable for a poet to incorporate, imitate, or otherwise “signify on”
the words, lyrics, or tune of someone else (commonly called “sampling”) in
his own work. If he is only riffing off another’s words, he should expect only
healthy controversy; if on the other hand, he is ripping off their words, he
should expect scornful contumely.
Theodore Seuss Geisel (later known as "Dr. Seuss") spent most of his twenties and thirties illustrating magazine ads for Flit brand insecticide. The crazy bugs and monsters he drew became pop-culture icons during the Great Depression. Flit was a subsidiary of Standard Oil (later known as "Exxon") (later still known as "you fuckers!"). So there's an example of an E.V.I.L. corporation using a poet in their advertising. But I should note that:
1. Standard Oil wasn't asking Geisel to be their spokespoet. They just liked his insect drawings. It would be years before Dr. Seuss published any books.
2. Dr. Seuss would have made a terrible slam poet. Trust me.
It is entirely up to the poet what constitutes a "poem". For example, a series of related haiku can be called one poem. Three sonnets can be called one poem. This has been deemed acceptable in national competition. By the same token, two short free-verse pieces that add up to less that three minutes can also be considered one poem, if the poet calls it that.
Now, in most cases, the judges will go "WTF?" and score accordingly, but sometimes they imagine brilliant connections between part one and part two and reward the poet for his innovation.
If you are a slam fan, not a spammer, and I banned you, just contact me here, and I will bring you back.
We should all take something out of the message from Richard.
Also kind of reworded but this has been said by someone before, an important thing on vatsim
When everyone stops getting on top of others and putting them down and instead be nice to each other and bring up each other, the place will be much better
something around those words
We should remember
