Facebook Poetry

My latest means of amusing myself.

If you crib people’s status updates, correcting their text-speak for real English, and then put line breaks in the appropriate places you can turn them into poetry.

Today’s example :

The Building Site

Building works across the road,
Are starting to drive me mad.
All I can hear is
Bang bang bang bang bang

      Uh-oh. Hoist by my own petard ;-)

      That’s pretty much the idea. It can take some trawling to find good ones, but it’s totally worth it when you do. The right length and cadence is important.

      I am such a nerd.
