The more observant among my regular readers will have noticed that I’ve been writing a lot of poetry over the last week or so. It’s mainly because I’m doing yet another WordPress course and this one is called Writing 201: Poetry. Everyday I’ve been writing a different kind of poem and thus far I’ve attempted the following poetry styles – Haiku, Acrostic, Prose, Limerick and Ode.

It all seems to be going to plan, but I thought I’d better offer a bit of an explanation to today’s effort as the task was to put together a ‘Found’ poem.

So I decided to use extracts from my ‘Spam Comments’ folder.

I think you’ll agree that there is a lot of wisdom contained within…

      I don’t think this demonstrates any poetic skill on my part and it’s more than a bit weird, but in my defense all I did was copy and paste weird stuff that other people wrote…

    A spammy poem! Or poetic spam? Either way, I like it. Different and entertaining.

    That’s a really cool take on the found poem! I love it when semi-nonsensical marketing language suddenly reveals its poetic side.
