Absolutely not. The cost per 1000 impressions for Hubpages is just terrible. Add fiction, without any specific keywords, and you would earn close to nothing. I would suggest working on a novel, or a novella at the very least. In the case of poetry, it's a good idea to focus on collecting them centered on particular themes. Real-world poetry is in vogue today. Satirical+Current World Happenings=Money in the poetry world today.
You have some great options to get these works published online and offline. Publishing isn't as difficult as it used to be. Even Amazon has begun working with writers directly to procure exclusivity rights.
I would say go ahead and write your heart out. Just don't publish it online. It really dilutes your chances of getting your work published somewhere where it matters.
