WHAT THE FUCK THIS IS AMAZINGI’m blown away, wow.
Literally a downfall vs. an uprising. Fucking incredible.
wasn’t this like, revealed as total plagiarism or something, i remember seeing something where someone debunked this post.
Not directly plagiarized, but it uses a structure, theme, and twist that is extremely similar to at least one other poem out there. The poem would be called “The Lost Generation” by Jonathan Reed from what I can tell, but in all fairness, I can’t find any details beyond that, so take it with a grain of salt.
In any case, this kid didn’t singlehandedly come up with the idea of a poem that reads different forwards and back. We read and wrote a couple exactly like this when I was in 7th or 8th grade English as well, and that was… before this kid was even born, I would guess.
