Poetic Justice: The Artistic Experience

Tired of analyzing the classics in your English class? Having a hard time relating to old guys who lived 100 years ago? Well, we here at Backpage believe poetry is a misunderstood art (it’s not just a phase, Mom!) and have assembled our “Poetic Justice” collection to inspire the tender soul buried within every student. Next time you’re feeling down, just channel your angst into poetry, and your whiny ramblings could make it into the paper too!

Including myself.

Two answers diverged on a partner quiz,
and I chose the one less favored.
And that has made all the difference
in my grade.

Love at 425 Degrees

There is no equal
in taste or price,
to my lovely, lovely
Pizza Bites.
