poetryTrying to feature all the bad poetries in the history of the universe in two hours of radio? Impossible, indeed! We shall try using few tried and true methods. Featuring two guests who should be revered, John (who reads some originals, including one penned in the studio) and Sean (who learns us about flarf). And cow poetry.
