When you ask most people how they feel about poetry, don’t be surprised if MOST tell you, “I don’t like poetry.” But what they don’t understand is that they LOVE poetry. They LOVE the poetry in song lyrics, greeting card verse and rap music. Unfortunately, the word POETRY, has gotten a bad rap from its limited association with what stuffy English professors and “poets” value and call poetry.
What if there was something so big, so transformational for music, greeting card verse, rap and poetry that it would make MASSES of people LOVE poetry and transform a dying art into a hugely popular movement?
By including song lyrics, rap music and even greeting card verse into genres of contemporary poetry, we can create a movement that can ultimately change the world.
In this movement the music industry, the greeting card industry and schools will have a major part. Through collaborative actions, investment and sponsorships, we have the potential to inspire a new excitement for poetry to come alive once again.
There will always be a place for traditional poetry that appeals to limited numbers of people. Isn’t it time to RE-BRAND poetry and call song lyrics, greeting card verse and rap poetry too? Imagine what it would be like to get EVERYONE excited about the word POETRY!
