My name's Patrick. That's my middle name, though, and it's what I go by. I'm nineteen years old and I'm going to school at the University of Maryland. I'm an American and I like Mark Twain and Walt Whitman. I like heavy metal, country, hip hop, gangsta rap, and polka. I'm a godless blasphemer, so you'll probably see a lot of that subject. I just write poems for the hell of it, and I write in iambic pentameter. I joined this to see if my poems were any good, so please review them. I like burritos, Mexican food, and Chinese food. Most of my poetry I write while procrastinating with some school work. In fact, that's what I'm doing right now as I type this. And I guess you can IM me if you want. Later.

"I am not a Pollack. People from Poland are Poles. They are not Pollacks. But what I am is one hundred percent American. I'm born and raised in the greatest country on this earth and I'm proud of it. And don't you ever call me a Pollack."

The Call reviews
I wrote this after my friend called me. I didn't have time to talk, and as I was waiting for her to call back, I felt as if I gave the impression that I didn't want to talk to her. I was pretty distressed.
