a tree as lovely as a UAV

Most poetry teachers do tend to drone on and on.

Indeed... this is not the droning you were looking for.

Or in other words, littering.

Roses are red
Violets are blue
We're watching Al Qaeda
and also you, too.

Blurring the line between art and littering.

I think I heard this type of poetry before somewhere.... Ah! Remember! Its like a fine example of Vogon Poetry!


During a reading of the poem, four audience members died of internal hemorrhaging and the President of the Mid-Galactic Arts Nobbling Council survived by gnawing one of his own legs off. Grunthos was reported to have been "disappointed" by the poem's reception.

Ode to a Small Lump of Green Putty I Found in My Armpit One Midsummer Morning

    Putty. Putty. Putty.
    Green Putty - Grutty Peen.
    Grarmpitutty - Morning!
    Pridsummer - Grorning Utty!
    Discovery..... Oh.
    Putty?..... Armpit?
    Armpit..... Putty.
    Not even a particularly
    Nice shade of green.
    As I lick my armpit and shall agree,
    That this putty is very well green.

A man was out picking a thistle
When he heard a most ominous whistle
He squinted his eye
and looked up in the sky
Oh S**T, It's a Hellfire missile!
2013-06-24 01:54:14 PM  
who are you little guy

(five or six stories below)
peering through some high

windows; at the gold

of a San Francisco sunset

(and buzzing: if i have to make people feel weird and suspicious

this is a beautiful way)

Oh squiggly line in my eye fluid. I see you lurking there on the peripheral of my vision.
But when I try to look at you, you scurry away.
Are you shy, squiggly line?
Why only when I ignore you, do you return to the center of my eye?
Oh, squiggly line, it's alright, you are forgiven.

dryknife: Or in other words, littering.

...and they all moved away from me on the bench...

a drone that upon crowds did rain
words that caused their eyeballs pain.

I dunno. I'd still rather see "shoe police:  stomping out crime!"
2013-06-24 02:34:00 PM  
Will it be written in a very persuasive font?
2013-06-24 02:45:36 PM  

Ayaitch: Like Trurl's Electronic Bard?

Heh.  I remember that.  Read it when I was a young'un.

"i like trees"

Who among us does not get pissed off when some jerk pulls up to a neighboring gas pump and blares his or her version of "music sharing" to rain all over the rest of us?

I read what I choose, thank you very much. Keep your litter to yourself (and your birdcage).

This gives me an idea for disrupting the Taliban with minimal investment.

Launch the porn drone!

Also, it could be used within the boundaries of the US and no one important would complain.

Should I run a kickstarter?

farkin Obama. Poetry is the vanguard of the new world order.

Don't delay! Install a poet in your home today!

Given the headline I am disappointed there is no Shatner performing Rocket Man reference yet in this thread.
