Looking for inspiration to create poetry – look no further than your iPod!
I thought I’d have a bit of fun with this month’s challenge as it’s the holidays.
I got the idea for the playlist shuffle game from Kristian. If you’ve not played before you basically put an iPod playlist on shuffle and write down the first line of the first ten songs that play to create a poem.
This is my gym playlist so it’s pretty heavy and a little risqué! But it’s actually not a bad poem…
She’s a steel thrill suicide
Am I going insane?
I’ve been thinkin’ ’bout, thinkin’ ’bout sex
Give me the flammable light
Naked pictures on my telephone
Hey, how long have you been crawling with the sick and appaling?
No ones laughing now
My life is perfect, so you believe
Each day is a war
I did my time and I want out
Cyanide Sweet Tooth Suicide – Shinedown
Your Betrayal – Bullet For My Valentione
Anything Goes – Guns ‘n Roses
Something From Nothing – Foo Fighters
Gonna Get Mine – Halestorm
You Have Come to the Right Place – Sixx:A.M
Gone Sovereign – Stone Sour
Dot Your Eyes – Five Finger Death Punch
Chaos – Like a Storm
Psychosocial – Slipknot
Have you ever done anything like this to create poetry? I’d love to know below.
Check back next week and I’ll have another one for you.
