Rewind (the old school crew I remember...GS Flashback)

I remember when poetry was my life
Poets wrote about their rises and falls
Their love and loss
It used to be about
The strife that carried a us from day to day
About how trust was earned
Deceit and lies
Took that all away
I remember when poets challenged each other
Oh the games we use to play we had  
Haiku Play
Every day of the week
Just to keep us all In the poetic game
Tasty Tuesday's
Wet & wild Wednesday’s
Thirsty Thursday’s
Freaky Friday’s
We encouraged each other
No one was looking for  
any type of credit or fame
You could freak The Scorpion Crew
chill in  
Area 51
Tainted Pen’s
debate with
Time Bandits
or get turned on by
Now that I think about
How did we ever
Get any work done
I remember when poetry
Was all about
The art form
The lyrics
The emotions
The words
The battles
The seduction
I guess
What I miss most is
The sharing of worlds
The mixing of emotions
With people who actually offered support and cared
I remember when poets
Had drama everyday
And it got all hashed out in very
Poetic ways
Chicks would get vexed over a poem
Then want to call you out
Cause they
You got some (haha)
OMG! THE stories I could tell
Poet's and poetesses  
keeping secrets
mixing their ink and body fluids
then they would run and tale!
All’s fair in love and poetry
Is what we use to say
This was our space
To laugh and consort
To get freaky, get nasty
Kill someone
If that’s what you want
I remember when poetry
Was all I wanted to do
I ate it
drank it
slept it
lived it
Damn I miss GS
The old school crew
