Terms and Conditions Apply.

You can like a poem

or even love it,

but be careful,

as Terms and conditions apply.

1. You can only like it (or love it)

if you’ve actually read it;

2. You can only really appreciate it

(which is indicated by you liking or loving it)

if you have read it out aloud;

3. Any criticism should be valid, and even-handed;

4. Any praise should be within the bounds of credulity;

5. Furthermore, you should be able to recognise a poem when it bites you on the bottom;

6. This is not a poem, or a list poem – it’s merely some prose and a list.

  1. Since this is not a poem, I can like it without reading it out loud 🙂
