Another Splotched Ink Poetry Session

index

 (Interactive research material for people who have never written a poem
 and maybe shouldn't. The links (to be added) will take you to something similar  that I did write. More links are being added as NaPoMo progresses.)

  Brought to you by Tech-Wad Prophesy...
 
  When you need a
predictable outcome.


                         
 Things you or I may or may not write about this year include:

 
 
 The Doomsday News:
           Official news will rely entirely on rumor and innuendo.
           Just another Y2K day in paradise.
            How's your climate theory coming along?
            Did someone yell fire in the global theater?
            Swamp land will be more valuable after the catastrophe.

            Everything's going to change, even the desert. 
            Cash now, Mac, credit has no future.
 
            In utopia you won't need money, just guts, drive and looks.
            These glasses will help you see what's coming. 
            
            I hear God will take over the Internet.
            World peace could be the next new technology.
            So, this is 2012, I can't believe it, it's 2012!
            Have you bought your early winter ascension outfit?
            There's a sale at Gown and Raiment, 20%off!
            I heard there'll be nothin' but fish and rice.
            If history comes to an end will we be tested on it.
            Are you prepared for polyphiloprogenitive take over? 
            What if there's no more toilet paper?
            What do you call it when everybody shows up and does
              something weird?   The rapture.
            The next war will be fought over mystics and women.
            Let's party like it's fifth night before Xmas
            ...and now, for the blurred, jumpy phone-cam news
            Y'know, I'm twenty-twelved out, give it a rest, huh?
            How do you go on after you thought it wouldn't?
            First, you get over your hangover.
            Could you get online, today?
            Hey, turn that down, we're trying to ascend in here.
