The Literary Plagiarist

Another Stolen Poem

By Mike Singleton - MikeydredPublished 4 months ago • 1 min read

This is a second experimental piece to construct a sonnet where the first part of each line is the name of the first chapter plucked fairly randomly from my library.

I don't have a clue whether it will make any sense or be coherent, but here are fourteen lines containing fourteen chapters' names from fourteen books.

See if you know any, you may know the chapter titles but the book could be a completely different kettle of fish.

The music, appropriately is "The Stealer" by Free


Shanghai Arrival Is Where I Will Start

Primal Material For MeTo Shape

The Swords Of Gods I Hold As I Depart

Theobald's Road, The Street Sign That We Read


Acting Managers Try To Take Control

Early Warnings Tell Us All Is Not Well

The Guilty Parties, Ones In The Know

The Cipher Of Mary Queen Of Scots, So


Points Of Entry Can Always Be Sought Out

Islam and Islamism, They're Devout

The Day Kennedy Was Shot, The World Stunned

The Opium Eater Of Rowe Island


This Book Is Impossible, So They Say

Out Of Chaos, We'll Hope To Find Our Way

    Very interesting approach to cut and piece parts of your others works to start each new sentence. A surreal Experience and a intriguing one indeed
