Bronga, Bronga, Bronga!

This week's amusing and absorbing task for the Poetry Bus(set by Have genes will travel was to create a poem out of those odd-ball Word Verification words familiar to regular internet users. I came up with a couple. This is the first:


 And this is, well, the second. (In case you're not sure, you read it from left to right). Not for the first time, one of my efforts reminds me of the dreaded Vogon poetry:

Particularly love the first one Dominic, is there any pattern/significance to the choice of colours in the second?
Everyone is doing so well with this task!

I love it too. I have been saying for some time that chavs will soon be naming their offspring with word-verifications.
BrongaPoets rule ...

Ha - this looks like it was so much fun!

It looks like pop art from sports labels - I love the imagery of it - or a wordle... very cool response...

Argent said...

I feel you have touched my soul :-). Thing is, I can't stop looking at these verification words now, every time I see one, I'm thinking of ways to use it. Vokweeg, anyone?

Gwei Mui said...

I really love the first one Bronga!
I'm a little like Argent I now am rather fixated with this verification words!

izzy said...

Very fun! thanks!

NanU said...

sublime.
the second one, if you're a true connoisseur of the Vogon oeuvre, must be one of those 9-level pomes where the meaning is in the order. On Tuesdays read backwards.

Bronga! to you too.

Helen said...

Came back for a second look-see. Bronga is my new word ~ I love it!

Right below this comment box I see 'wingled' and it sets my mind racing! I'm doomed!

Titus said...

Bronga, Bronga, Bronga! Superb!
And the second possibly a little highbrow for me...

Erratic Thoughts said...

Haha!This was so nice-liked it!
I especially liked the first one :D:D

the watercats said...

the first one reminds me of those songs that kids sing to really seriously annoy you... the second is just so deep, it actually has made itself unfathomable! I'd say it's at least the second best vogon poet in the world :-D

lovely, they make nice artworks too I think... they do lead you into sound poet territory a bit too don't they, I quite like the results you've got here anyway
