The game I’m playing with the debates tonight: Heard-Word Poetry

October 15th, 2008

This is how it works: The goal is to make poems. With the words you hear from the debates.

The rules are simple: You can’t take a word that was said later and put it before a word that was said earlier. That’s the only rule. Pick and choose your words like a poet. Have fun. Here’s a poem I wrote at a work meeting last spring:

It talks, it magically
hooks the nerve, the
news, the missing tigers.
Search, search a while.
Two ninjas change skin.
I’m gonna change too.
