Dear reader, enclosed you find my latest spam poem. Each line is verbatim from a spam comment (including typos). The meme pool had comprised about 400 spam comments collected in the past three weeks.
This time I forced myself to compile the poem extremely fast, scrolling through these comments in Data-from-Star-Trek-style and letting my subconsciousness decide. Therefore I call that sub-genre Postmodern Science Fiction Inspired Spam Poetry Devoid of Meaning.
I did not select phrases with less than 4 words. This rule is optional, not part of the Rules of the Cult – see historical information below – and I did not make up the last sentence of the poem, even the emoticon is genuine!
searching for sanskrit tattoos
too enforced a Political platform
that roam across the surface over periods of numerous millions of years
Your house is valueble for me
Good luck for the next!
Use your music or television as a continuous background noise
Are you sure concerning the supply?
Teeth are not made of bone
Will there be a part 2?
If you are inside the horizontal scenery
The caribbean have an infinitely more elementary reach
The instruments that lag in real life, lag correctly
I lost track of what I had been performing
A creative bent of mind and an eye for detail
to a great extent kind of free in bizarre grades of refinement
Such is the case, you must purchase tokens
but eventually you have to deliver
Could it be only me or does it look like a few of these remarks come across like they are written by brain dead visitors? 😛
Some historical context for new readers:
I crafted my first search term poems and spam poems some months ago in my Mad Scientist’s Garage – MacGyver-style, typical engineer’s poetry.
I was a spam poet, but also the chronicler of the Early Spam Poetry Community. This was my write-up of the dawn of Spam Poetry and Search Term Poetry and I had the honor to review the first on spam poetry recently.
But then … more recently … spam poets entered the stage who really know how to handle languages made spam poetry real poetry:
The Nasty Commenter Spam Poem: A comment that haunted many bloggers – now dissected and disarmed. You can also see how the spammosphere reacts to the poem!
An Android Girl Coming of Age or a Conversation With God: The first poem I am aware of that contains a story, a dialogue. I have also learned how spam poetry works from the analysis in this article: Like regular poetry, the words already exist; they are just waiting to be put together in the right order.
