The Eerie Art of Spam Poetry

(elkement. Created: 2014-02-02. Tags: Spam Poetry, Poetry, Art, Spam Comments, Weird)

Spam poetry has long been underrated. I admit I have considered it something lesser - compared to the intriguing soothing voices of search terms.

But suddenly it was clear to me: Spam comments on blogs speak to me, originating from a parallel universe, a world taken right out of a gothic movie. A Victorian dark novel, perhaps blended with one by Douglas Coupland.

Spam poetry at its best has to be eerie. The rules are the same as for Search Term Poetry - phrases have to be taken from spam comments (submitted to my WordPress blog) without modification except truncation at the beginning or the end.

With hindsight I denote this post and spam poem as the point of time I - as an already seasoned spam poet - have found my true calling. And the protagonists in my poem obviously have as well:

searching for sanskrit tattoos

too enforced a Political platform
that roam across the surface over periods of numerous millions of years

Your house is valueble for me
Good luck for the next!

Use your music or television as a continuous background noise
Are you sure concerning the supply?

Teeth are not made of bone
Will there be a part 2?

If you are inside the horizontal scenery
The caribbean have an infinitely more elementary reach

The instruments that lag in real life, lag correctly
I lost track of what I had been performing

A creative bent of mind and an eye for detail
to a great extent kind of free in bizarre grades of refinement

Such is the case, you must purchase tokens
but eventually you have to deliver

Could it be only me or does it look like a few of these remarks come across like they are written by brain dead visitors?
