I agree with you, teradactyl. To each their own. I was just using their prompt as a spin-off for asking why others here write poetry. Many of us listed the same reasons, but not all. Many also wrote what poetry, either that they have written or from others, means to them. I find it interesting.
And, sure, I admit that there are genres I don’t read much. Sci-fi for example. I have many friends who love it. Yet, though it is not my favorite form of literature I would not refuse to read it and certainly wouldn’t say that the people cannot write or that they are cowards or strange or anything else
