The “she was a poem” meme is all about appreciating the unappreciated.
Underrated: Your favorite obscure doom rock band, Nutty Buddy bars, New Brunswick. We all have things we see the value in that others simply don’t and it’s time they hear about it.
Also known as “She was a poem, He couldn’t read” memes, these memes highlight things, people, or works of art that were unappreciated in their time and deserved better. As with most social media memes it’s basically a way to show off your good taste and moral superiority while shaming others.
