Who are the best poets on poemranker? (A list by me) (Other) by Jeremi B. Handrinos
First off, let me just say, I'm damn proud to have been accepted into this highly unusual clique of backstabbing moody artists and what I consider to be, hands down, some of the best writers of poetry on the web. I've been ranking for some time now, and have grown to love poemranker on many levels. Being a poet is in my opinion a 'calling', and not for the lazy, or weak of spirit. It takes its sweet time evolving within a being... Just to come flopping out like a blind 1,000 lb Marlin at the worst time. Poets are the ultimate in artists and accordingly so, they are the nerve endings of the human race and philosophies surrounding its development and social, cultural, and spiritual diversification and or identification. In both the 'then', 'now', and 'later'. Poets, if they are true to their occupation, will do whatever it takes, no matter what, to get the words out. And selflessly they will give those sleepless nights cold sweating to the process behind it all, writing (life), in order to give it back to the universe and it's solvent form. And its many young eager recipients. I've devised this list using many different factors, and talents, and research 'overall' to form my conclusions about these poets. I have taken it upon myself to praise upon this fine day, in this fine month, in this waxing year. October 2003. The 4th day. These poets I am about to name are being singled out by me, as true poets, for many specific, and radical reasons. I'm sure those among you, that know poetry, will get the gist of my statement here without me having to go to far into 'the details', but for the sake of idiots that will go "but why them?" Let me explain. It involves technique, grammar, spelling, punctuation, titling, style, structure, imagination, humor, consistency and an overall grasp behind knowing why they do what they do when they're doing it. There are a lot of great poets on the ranker, but few that are consistant and dedicated. POEMRANKER BEST LIST ____________________ 1. -=Dark_Angel=- 2. Horus8 3. Settle 4. Christof 5.

aye, i made the list..

and ive only just gotten out my slump

pleasantly surprised.

but i liked the intro much more, i like nodding profusely. the list rocks, and i there arent many that could replace you as judge.

anyway, enough yammering- i have to catch the next updraft and fly again (i didnt get these damned wings for nothing)

When I last did my owl song I destroyed my booger flavoured tootsie roll pop.

my earwax tootsie roll makes a nice candle
but its windy..

i had illumination for a few miliseconds though
and managed to find my comfy tree hole

now im trying to conquer night
its dark is all i can say.

You actually had time to make this list?

I feel sorry for you, you have no life.
[n/a] Jeremi B. Handrinos @ > New Life Drug | 4-Oct-03/2:59 PM | Reply
Yeah, I had ten spare minutes to make this list. Why would you think I have no life?I could be rich and at a detox center in Beverly Hills. I could be 'working' in other window application while ranking on the computer and doing other organizational computer tasks? You must not feel sorry for me young man? I have a blessed life good boy, I am a man of leisure. I spend my days spending old family money and doing whatever my heart desires. I am clearly in heaven for the time being.
