Those Damn Kids

This prompt on ReadWritePoem challenged us to write a poem comprised of any or all of a set of words taken from email spam.  I wrote the words randomly on a sheet of paper, began  putting them together by two’s (kinda like a puzzle) and the poem ended up writing  itself. This was really fun and I ended up using all 15 words of the prompt and only 9 others.

Those Damn Kids
Insolent progeny

exploded language into a

vehement croak with

vowelized chelations, exulting

cosmoramic & irresistable.

Alas, their investment beget

a thrasher of a

capricious reprobate.

  1. I like the way you get a nice cadence out of these polysyllabic words, which isn’t easy to do. Great ironic title too.


  2. I really enjoyed the title of your poem, it says everything. You put the words together effectively and economically, Zouxzoux. Thank you for this enjoyable overview of our youth. =D


  3. Hey Z! Don’t live in NO but, I’ll see you at Pascal’s Manale one of these days. I’ll be the suave deboner devil at the oyster bar with several large martinis shaken not stirred) and a stack of sliders. I think you and Derrick are commiserating. You obviously have endured an assault of the unruly. You know it takes training to be insolent progeny. Smiles to you, I like your poem.
