C.P. Cabaniss (cpcabaniss) | 633 comments You have until the 29th of April to post a poem and from the 30th to around the 6th of May, we’ll vote for which one we thought was best!

Please post directly into the topic and not a link. Please don’t use a poem previously used in this group. Only one submission per person is allowed.

Your poem can be of any length!

This week’s topic is: Brick by Brick

The rules are pretty loose. You could write a poem about anything that has to do with the subject/photo but it must relate to the topic somehow.

Most of all have fun!

TITLE: Kicking Me While I'm Down
GENRE: Heavy Metal Song
RATING: PG-13 for violence and language

Cheap shot, money shot, what’s the difference?
They both chip away at someone’s innocence
Brick by brick, my foundation crumbles down
The rubble on my carcass weighs a million pounds
Even when life itself has passed me the fuck by
I keep asking myself again what’s the reason why?
Why are these steel toed boots kicking my ribs?
Why is negativity all these fuckers have to give?

You’re kicking me while I’m down!
In the head! In the balls!
You’re kicking me while I’m down!
It’s funny as shit when I slip and fall!

One final pulse beats through my broken body
Yet none of you clowns have found a new hobby
Kicking me around like you own the damn town
And here I thought this ended after the final round

You’re kicking me while I’m down!
In the teeth! In the ass!
You’re kicking me while I’m down!
You’ve got no soul! You’ve got no class!

Maybe if I pull myself up by the bootstraps
Walk a hundred more miles to fill the gaps
Stretch myself a little thinner every day
You’d kick me when I’m down anyway

You’re kicking me while I’m down!
In the jaw! In the gut!
You’re kicking me while I’m down!
Giving me bruises! Opening cuts!
You’re kicking me while I’m down!
In the shins! In the ribs!
You’re kicking me while I’m down!
If I’m going to hell, I’m taking you with!

Edward Davies | 1727 comments Title : The Wall
Poet : Edward Davies

Brick by brick by brick he builds
A wall of fear and dread,
A wall that symbolizes all
The hatred in his head,
A wall that towers up above,
A wall that makes me sick,
A wall that’s un-American,
Brick by brick by brick
