Accidental (or Incidental) BBS Poetry


#1

A thread for poetry that emerges from the comments on the BBS.

Not a place for direct song parodies, movie dialog parodies, or intentional, specific poem parodies, but rather honest to goodness comments that just happen to strike your poem sense. String multiple comments together from multiple users if the sum is greater than the parts…

Bonus points (Whose Line disclaimer…) if you can name the poet their comment evoked for you.

And if people start “cheating” and writing their comments poetically on purpose, well, in the words of Randal Monroe, mission fucking accomplished

Here’s the comment that made me look for an existing thread for this:

It gave me a William Carlos Williams vibe.
