I have to start out by saying that my poem today will make ABSOLUTELY no sense unless you consider that it is a found poem. You don’t know what that is???? Ha! Neither did I until this morning. Rena Traxel explains all about it on her blog today as we come to Day 24 of the A to Z Poetry Challenge. Also, HERE is a link to The Found Poetry Project. Rena created an online version for us to use-how clever of her! Essentially we are give “source text” (simply put—a bunch of random text taken from a bunch of random sources)…Then we use the words to make up a poem. I went through and highlighted words I wanted to use and then added some words of my own to create my completely random poem. If you’d like to see my the “source text” Rena provided us, click HERE and scroll down to where it says Source Text.
A Found Poem-Boy Blue, Wolfy Fella and Cinder-gal
Boy Blue stomped his feet
Go away! I’m not yours to eat!
You bushy tailed canine,
You’re not going to dine
On me or Cinderella
Got that? Wolfy fella?
You say you’re NOT here gnaw and chew
On Cinder-gal or her wooden shoe?
Well, then don’t piddle and putter
Have some crunchy peanut butter
And some beans, corn, peas.
Although I doubt that will please.
As for me and my main squeeze
We will head for balm and breeze.
And sing from the rooftops
Because, Dude, we have “nice chops!”
So, “Later” you hairy bafoon
We’re off on our honeymoon!

Very fun Penny! I am just about to begin this challenge….It seems….well….CHALLENGING!!! 🙂
Well….I used other text besides source text….so that helped….my brain was aching when I thought about just using source text :•)
Ohhh…I am SOOOOO glad I did not read this before posting mine! I hang my head in shame at the altar of your poetry.
Seriously…this is amazing!
Irene….I absolutely loved yours!!!!! Like I told Natalie…I used other text, too.
Awesome Penny! I’m really impressed you made it a fun children’s one from those words. Brilliant!
So fun! “Cinder-gal” haha this was great Penny!
Yeah…I thought that had a nice ring to it.
Haha. I can just see Boy Blue saying this. He’s a bit of hero in the Fable series. I think it was nice of Boy Blue to offer the Wolf something to eat when after all he was trying to eat them! I love that you were able to get the grocery list in there.
I don’t know that wolf will be satisfied for long with that grocery list 🙂 He’ll probably head off for some pork or something.
Yes! Yes! Yes! Too funny! So Cinderalla is Boy Blue’s main squeeze, huh? No wonder he could never be found. Funny, creative, whimsical, did I mention funny? Great job, Penny.
Thank you for your kind words, Pam.
