- something to make real men look bad
- a way to get chicks
OriginsEditPoetry was invented by Edgar Allen Poe in 1829 during America's Romantic Movement as a way for him to get chicks. The original pronunciation of the word was "Poe-try", because Poe deployed the aphrodisiac qualities of rhyming couplets to try to nail identical twins. His lifetime "bedding couplets success average" was 43 percent.
The First Laureate Election ControversyEdit
Poe was elected as America's first Poet Laureate in 1845, claiming victory over his opponent Edgar Allen Gore. The election was a nail-biter as the newly minted state of Florida came into play with its two electoral college votes. The Supreme Court deemed all ballots with dangling participles were invalid, and Poe was ultimately acclaimed the winner.
America elects a poet to act as Poet Laureate to lead the nation in global word-related conflicts.
