A place for the discussion of poetry intended for an audience beyond poets.

According to Ronald Wallace, a McPoem is a "poem you can count on always to be the same – small, domestic, fun for the whole family." In other words, it is a poem for people who don't read poetry, composed by someone who can't write poetry. For an example we need look no further than Mr. Wallace's definition itself.
The McPoem should never be confused with Seinfeldian verse, which is poetry about nothing, written by someone with nothing to say.
