Random Poetry

Kelle Kerr
A love of tradition
you've known it always.
When you drink,
his conversation perfectly delightful.
First keep the peace within–
quo has lost its status.
For the most part, fear
deeply felt good.
Computer Science is no more,
beat him at politeness.

Here are the instructions for creating your own random poem:

Go to "wikipedia." Hit “random”
or click
The first random wikipedia article you get is the title of your poem.

Go to "Random quotations"
or click
1) Select the first three or five words of the very first quote of the page for the first line of your poem.

2) Then the last three or five words of the next quote of the page is the second line of your poem.

3) Select the first three or five words of the third quote of the page for the third line, and then alternate as above until you’ve made it to the last quote…

Go to flickr and click on “explore the last seven days”
or click
Fifth picture, no matter what it is, will be your poem image. This part is optional.

ha, this random poem makes just as much sense as many 'real' poems one can read on the webs...
enjoyed this

polona said...

well, here's what i got:

There's a Skeeter on My Peter

you should not live
when ideas come
i'm glad i don't
trust a sane person
gratitude is not
unsettling as those
inside myself is a place
to profess courage and act accordingly
health is not
my towels again

Bess- I look forward to seeing what you come up with!

jyotsana- thanks for wanting to play with random poetry -it's really not an easy medium but, it sure makes for mysterious poetry. I'm also intrigued by the connections we make with the random words.

Keep cool and you command
that you have seized happiness
If you can
The only good is knowledge,
which seems inherent in them In a world where
Brains, like hearts
feeling just plain
Advertising is a valuable economic to kill again

Bess, that's too cool! Funny that you got the title you did. Makes one wonder about the "randomness" of it all. Thanks for sharing.
