Good poetry does not include politics

1. Tone:

If you say a statement with genuine meaning in your tone, you possibly get aggressive behavior in children. This is because children are tuning in more than ever to what adults say. They thirst for adult messages in music, art and lesser known influences like television. The secret to convey these messages is by seclusion. No one would want to destroy the vegetables if they had been chopped so fine they were mixed in and invisible.

2. Recipes

Children sense what recipes we’re dreaming up, having read large letters about them. Children are small prophets. I don’t know why we haven’t shown them menus for each meal. Easy-to-read menus threaten most youngsters tiny eardrums and light receptors, and politically-minded children are offended by insults delivered by these menus to their sophistication.

3. What to wear and do with your mouth while getting political

So an outfit backfires. This has been foreseen. If you don’t want people to hate what you’re wearing, don’t say, “This outfit sucks, huh” as a statement.

Who wouldn’t negatively react to an author who is nothing but kind words.

Political disagreement flavored with cherry tip. Slowly place the political instrument on your lips before deciding whether its taste isn’t for you.

Expecting this medical issue to present itself in polite civic discourse is intellectualizing a simplistic fallacy of being required to grow yourself a pair in order to win at board games.

But what about revolution? A poem about revolution shouldn’t say “revolution poem” or “revolution trade center.” If you want your favorite TV star assassinated you shouldn’t shout, “Assassinate whomever I like!”

A poem cannot take politics upstairs and bicker behind walls. We do not see what happens upstairs in amicable revolution. In a sense, a revolution is history gone badly.

Parents modeling for children’s clothes, fighting in front of kids.

We see the lack of physical interference–both hands solitary and on hips—this means that either companion could get political at uncomfortable objects.

These justices are hoping to overturn their courtroom anger. Laws are made by figureheads who see disillusion in fighting.

Opponents of the poem see practiced daily usage as a threat to linear conversation derivative of political logic.

Heated and worked out in front of children, poems should be about really anything but politics.

Politics has words that interfere with beautiful concepts.

Childish secret concepts are like bellybuttons: we all want to deny they come from god.

You should maybe read like Politics of Experience, I mean in a jewish way, everything that happens is thought or said, or done is poltical,
palatal, palatic, pollutical.
