A Plagiaristic Poem Stolen From A Magazine

An Experiment In Cut And Paste Ransom Note Plagiaristic Poetry

By Mike Singleton - MikeydredPublished 12 months ago β€’ Updated 12 months ago β€’ 1 min read
The Poem In It's Original Form

This is an experiment in cut and past and ransom note plagiaristic poetry. It does not make much sense but it does roughly rhyme and has a consistent number of syllables per line.

I took the challenge from Steve Wheeler / Invisible Poets here in the Facebook Poetry Society.

So here is the poem in plain text but you can see what it turned out like in the main picture.

None of these words are mine but I cut them out and arranged them. Does that make me a thief and a plagiarist? Remember every word we write in our poetry or fiction has been used before, as well as many phrases too. I will leave you to pass judgement on me.

The music is "Cut Me Down" by Lloyd Cole and the Commotions which is sort of appropriate


This Much I Know, I'm Happy

Chaos And Noise Enrich Beauty

Women Like Men? Who Knew Why

For This Is A Veggie Pie


Unique Times, The Isolation

Midas Touch, Inspiration

Talking Like American

Seven Times A Day Down Nan
