This is probably going to be a big deal tomorrow. The NFL can’t do anything right this year.
it is a big deal, how many times has tebow kneeled down? Has he ever been penalized? No. Bullshit. Then they have the audacity to be calling it excessive celebration, screw the NFL. Let a white Christian male kneel down and protect his ass, create a movement and call it tebowing, but once a Black Muslim Male does it, it’s flagged. IT’S ALL FUN AND GAMES UNTIL IT’S NO LONGER INVOLVING A WHITE CHRISTIAN MALE BUT RATHER A BLACK MUSLIM. LOAD OF B.S.
Part of learning how to write poetry is learning how to trust yourself, to build a certain intuition about the writing you do, and the writing you want to do. Whatever poems you pick to submit, pick them with the thought you just really, really love them and want to share them. That probably isn’t as pointed advice as you might have been looking for, but I think as readers we can tell when a lot was put into writing, and we gravitate towards that.
