Charlie Sheen reads his own poetry

In this clip from Charlie Sheen, he reads a poem from his self-published 1990 poetry book, "A Peace of My Mind."

Not surprisingly, the poem's just not that good. I'd say maybe Sheen should keep his day job -- except today Warner Bros. decided that's not going to happen. In a statement, Warner Bros. said, "After careful consideration, Warner Bros. Television has terminated Charlie Sheen's services on 'Two and a Half Men' effective immediately."

Of course, Sheen is the actor who has been making headlines for the last two weeks with his outrageous, outspoken narrative. Odds are, being fired from "Two and a Half Men" will not mean we've heard the last of him.

See the cover of the book, Sheen's only publication (so far), with a slightly grisly illustration by Adam Rifkin.

As an English major with an emphasis in professional writing, I thought his poem was actually very decent. It has a certain element of chaos, great imagery, and it's open to many interpretations. Poetry's difficult to write, and you can tell that he cares about his and takes it seriously.
