Today’s poem Broken Silence is probably one of the most comical poems I have ever written, it is all about being in a crowded room where someone let’s one rip and the whole audience looks to find the culprit or a scapegoat to take credit. It was a poem inspired by the 15 random words (in bold) provided by the following Twitter followers:
@greatgothninja (flatulence), @solomonobaje (Serendipity), @oneunder2001 (anachronism ), @conceptcrucible (zephyr), @stickyprints (knotted), @essvari (fervour), @goodyniosi (abrasive), @newyorkbigapple (volunteer), @lindaperrybarr (timesuck), @msfitztx (converted), @persianpoetess (Supremely), @dvcaz (Schadenfreude), @rajanbalana (tragic), @maddogten (Rubber), @travelbyrv (evidence)
You can listen to the poem here, or read below.
Escaping like a knotted zephyr
not derived from some rubber bag
leaving supremely tragic evidence
abrasive timesuck converted serendipity
room now abound with accused anachronism
fervour to find some poor volunteer
as the Schadenfreude squirm in silence
looking for the source of flatulence
-Poem by Justin Germino
