What is Poetry?
"Sugar We're Going Down" by Fall OUt Boy
Am I more than you bargained for yet
I've been dying to tell you
anything you want to hear
Cause that's just who I am this week
Lie in the grass, next to the mausoleum
I'm just a notch in your bedpost
But you're just a line in a song

We're going down, down
In an earlier round
And sugar, we're going down swinging
I'll be your number one with a bullet
A loaded God complex
Cock it and pull it
"Monster" -Imagine Dragons
Ever since I could
remember
,
Everything inside of
me
,
Just wanted to fit

in
(oh oh oh oh)
I was never one for
pretenders
,
Everything I tried to
be
,
Just wouldn't settle

in
(oh oh oh oh)

If I told you what I

was
,
Would you turn your back on me?
And if I seem
dangerous
,
Would you be scared?
I get the feeling just
because
,
Everything I touch isn't dark enough
If this problem lies in me

What is Poetry?
"Yet, it is true, poetry is delicious; the best prose is that which is most full of poetry." - Virginia Woolf
"writing that formulates a concentrated imaginative awareness of experience in language chosen and arranged to create a specific emotional response through meaning, sound, and rhythm"
-Merriam Dictionary
-metaphor
-repetition
-rhyme
-mood
-imagery
I'm only a man with a candle to guide me,
I'm taking a stand to escape what's inside me.

A monster, a monster,
I've turned into
a monster,

A monster, a monster,
And it keeps getting stronger.

Can I clear my conscience,
If I'm different from the rest,
Do I have to run and
hide
? (oh oh oh oh)
I never said that I want this,
This burden came to me,
And it's made it's home
inside

-Personification
-Symbolism

-Metaphor
-Repetition
-Rhyme
Monster Music Video
Some of us, we're hardly ever
here
The rest of us, we're born to
disappear
How do I stop myself from being just a
number
?
How will I hold my head to keep from going
under
?

Down to the
wire
, I wanted water
But I walk through the
fire
If this is what it takes to take me even
higher
And I'll come through like I do
When the world keeps testing me,
testing me, testing me

How did they find me here? What do they want from me?
All of these vultures hiding right outside my
door
I hear them whispering, they're trying to ride it out
They've never gone this long without a kill
before

Down to the
wire
, I wanted water
But I walk through the
fire
If this is what it takes to take me even
higher
And I'll come through like I do
When the world keeps testing me, testing me, testing me
Wheel's up, I got to leave this evening
I can't seem to shake these vultures off of my trail
Power is made by power being taken
So I keep on running to protect my situation

Down to the
wire
, I wanted water
But I walk through the
fire
If this is what it takes to take me even
higher
And I'll come through like I do
When the world keeps testing me, testing me, testing me

What you gonna do about it?
What you gonna do about it?
What you gonna do about it?

Don't give up, give up
Don't give up, give up, give up
Don't give up, give up
Don't give up, give up, give up
