Poetry by Committee!
« on: June 14, 2007, 06:16:41 PM »
Alright - I figure it's high time we started writing intentionally hideous collective poetry.  We'll start with a simple couplet pattern and adapt other rhyming forms whenever we feel with.  For now, here are the rules:

I post a single line, and the previous poster posts one that rhymes with it.  Then, that poster comes up with a line of their own to begin a new rhyming couplet.  (It's easier this way).

Here goes:


A constipated groundhog named Nathaniel
Correction: the coat hanger should be upside down.

Great - now come up with a new line to start another couplet with - or, come up with another word that sorta rhymes with "Nathaniel."
Correction: the coat hanger should be upside down.

Okay, I hate to bump a thread without contributing anything to it, but this seems fun:
The poem so far:

A constipated groundhog named Nathaniel,
Looked up "repairs" in his manual,
He found very little,

A constipated groundhog named Nathaniel,
Looked up "repairs" in his manual,
He found very little,
So he grabbed his broke fiddle,
He played some ragtime,
Sipping tequila and lime,
without much direction,
he asked for protection
from a kindly old maid
who'd just gotten laid,
She said "No way,"
So Nathaniel went back to his fiddle.

End

Here's a new Start:


In Scotland there is a large Loch
