The Cut-Up-Machine-Poem

October 2016

Yes, I know when this is posted it will be November but does it matter? In the last few days I have written some new poems and posted them here. However, I need some fun and a little playing around and therefore I am going back to one of my favourite poetry sites: Language is a Virus.

It has a lot of writing prompts, writing gizmos and gadgets and all in all is just great fun for any writing block to just vanish. Today I am using The Cut-Up-Machine and enter this text:

And I wonder


The Cut-Up-Machine

will make of this.

get your behind up...
get your behind up…

Let’s see what “Language is a Virus” will make of it :-). It’s been cut twice:

No mug of wonder

What The branches this.

Lot’s a chicken sofa.

No coffee.

Lot’s crack.

I am outside dance

had mug up and skillfully.

And mug the I trees

had mug

can had is had

in down wonder

What The….


I am sitting here barking with laughter…… 🙂
