Lyrical Poetry died because

by Kevin T. McEneaney

replaced by tv dating game shows

food recipes replaced intimacy

alliteration and assonance abandoned as artificial affectation

it was deemed sentimental when compared to pornography

romance was no longer thought possible

computers didn’t know how to write it

it often contained grammar

it implied that chance had a chance

paranoia was thought politically correct

it relied on metaphors

no one knew what lyricism was supposed to do
