These Are the Most Cold-Blooded Poems Ever Written

Today is Great Poetry Reading Day at the end of National Poetry Month, so I took some time over at Cracked to catalog The Most Cold-Blooded Poems of All Time. In western lit. In the last few hundred years.

…Yeah, this might just be a list of poems I like because they’re cold-blooded. But it’s still fun reading! If you don’t like poetry, this is the article for you. I didn’t write it out of some elitist love of the medium. I wrote it as a way of slashing past its guards, vaulting the gate, and raising our flag above its capitol!

If you do like poetry, you probably know these poems already, but you didn’t enjoy them with Batman metaphors.
