The Third Worst Poetry In The Universe

Could be written by you!

Check out the Vogon Poetry Generator I stumbled upon.

* For the benefit of non- Douglas Adams' afficionados, 'Vogons' were aliens famed for penning the 'third worst poetry in the universe' in The Hitch Hiker's Guide to The Galaxy - poetry so bad that all their enemies fled rather than hear the Vogons reciting it!

Luckily no mass exodus has yet fled from any of my readings, but the woeful tale of the Vogons acts as a sobering reminder that we poets should never get too smug.

Vogon poetry is wonderful. Taught Shakespeare everything he knew.
