So am I to presume that the Phu Quoc province of Vietnam isn't dead just because Y!A made a category for it? Yeah, no, I'm pretty sure Y!A is not the arbiter of what is or isn't dead. It's Yahoo, not God.
If you can go up one by one to the next 10 random strangers you see and get even one of them to be able to recite from memory more than one poem, and I'm not talking song lyrics or nursery rhymes or something they just made up but an actual published poem, then I will happily concede poetry isn't dead. But I bargain that not one person in those 10 will even be able to come up with one, much less more than one.
