I like some poetry, but I have never read any so-called poetry here that didn’t make me wince.

If I’m following someone and they start doing more than a tiny, tiny bit of “poetry”, I’m very likely to unfollow.

I agree with you all the way.

Though there are people like e.e. Cummings who wrote things I liked, but without rhyme, so maybe we disagree there. Or maybe that should be called something else.
