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

Enjoy liberally.

Spam Stirfry

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 Alaska stop stop

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.
