The Society of Urban Poets

The Society of Urban Poets, Inc.


The acronym SOUP was adopted because it suggests a variety of tastes
and textures tastefully mixed together and ending up as a savory dish
that can be appreciated by all.
SOUP is good food all year íround, not just on a cold winterís day!
Some of SOUPís goals are to promote poetic expression
without the use of profanity, and to establish an outlet
for poets to display their works and share their talents and art
with the community and public at large.
