Poetic Appeal

April is National Poetry Month and you may be thinking that poetry isn’t really your thing.  However, there are many different types of poetry that cover a wide range of topics.  Have you thought to look at poems about the love of pets like Dog Songs?  How about as a way to get over a brutal breakup like in Narcissistic Personality Disorder? Even politics can take a poetic turn with a creative author as in DogFight: The 2012 Presidential Campaign in Verse.  Check out the 811 section today and expand your horizons!


Movies, Music and More...
