Do NOT go gentle!

National Poetry Month, alas, is nearly through. But it’s never too late to avail yourself. Check out this collection of poetic goodness at Slate. You can read up on the latest. Or you can use poetry to learn about scientific principles.

Over at the Onion, however, they insist that “This month marks the 10th National Poetry Month, a campaign created in 1996 to raise public awareness of the growing problem of poetry.”

In a seeming attempt to prove this, Mr. Sun pays homage with his immortal “Do Not Go Gentle When You Merge From The Right!” Also, to cheese crackers. The BBC’s Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy site contains some insight into terrible poetry and its application in torture.

If you’re just plain worn out from the human element of poetry, try the poetry machine.
