1.You’ve never heard of the author. Real poets have names like Shelley, Byron, Bysshe, or Percy Dovetonsils.
2.) You’ve always hated your sophomore English teacher.
3.) There are no gunfights, car chases, exploding cows, or sex scenes in my poems (well, maybe a little).
4.) All the really good poets are dead.
5.) Buying books means killing trees.
6.) Poems are all about romance, pain, grief, nature, and the mysteries of life and death, and you hate that stuff.
7.) You only like poems that start with “There was an old man from Nantucket.”
8.) You can never remember the difference between a simile and a metaphor, and frankly don’t give a damn.
9.) Most.of the poems are free verse, so why should you have to buy the book?
10.) Poetry is like truth, and “you can’t handle the truth!”
