Poetry: Spam Stirfry
I wrote this as part of an exercise in the first Introduction to Creative Writing workshop.
The rules for those who are interested:
Long and short as desired
10 syllables a line
Each line contains a word from 'caucasian refurbishment'
First word of each line must be I, you, he, she, they or we
Exception is the last line
You, demigod, would you take a message
We have written to Milan. It’s convex,
They are sorry about that bong. Wait! Hey
You, it’s going to
I stop you leaving, you cipher pervert,
You get back here to the dress rehearsal.
We will take back our letter, convex man,
We will drown you in the cottage bathhouse,
We will. Or blowfish shall think when really
I will arrest you for the queen diabetic.
I mean the dastard beams are kinda good,
We would agree, aplomb, and so perforce
You would mount the altar of the crime scene,
And for that dubious crime, you’d detonate.
