One must make a distinction however: when dragged into prominence by half poets, the result is not poetry, nor till the autocrats among us can be “literalists of the imagination”—above insolence and triviality and can present for inspection, imaginary gardens with real toads in them, shall we have it.

The Tuesday Platform

“Vogon poetry is of course, the third worst in the universe."



Douglas Adams is a harsh critic, but I think we can do better than this, Toads! Today is your prompt-free open link day of the week, so please share any poem, old or new, with us today. For those who are flagging in your Poem-A-Day energy, I suggest trying out this Vogon Poetry Generator and sharing the results: VOGON POETRY GENERATOR

I tried the generator. It did't give me a suitable poem for today.
But thanks, I saved it. It may be salvageable.

As predicted, my poetry writing muse has absconded after a day back at the salt mines.. I had big plans for today but I'm not sure if anything will come of them.
