Now make your own poem at thinkzone’s poem generator. Advice: in order for the poems to get under the skin of our modern readers, as these poems undoubtedly do, you’ll need to add words from your actual surroundings into the word lists, to see them hurled back at you with new, disconcerting meanings, challenging your complacent view of your reality! For instance, I added ‘computer’, ‘CD’, ‘ipod’, ‘printer’, ‘keyboard’, ‘laptop’, ‘book’, ‘guitar’, ‘music’, ‘shoe’, ‘manage’, ‘observe’ and ‘disbelief’ to the word lists. Now I change some words and I get a different feel:
THE RAINY DEALER QUICKLY GETS THE CITY.
AH, VANDALISM!
WHERE IS THE OLD CAR?
Right, I’m off to add in as many sexually explicit words as possible, so that I can have my erotic poetry end with lines like ‘the girl works like a dark truck’ and so I can find out what parts of the human body ‘sell dead, dead rains’.
