here is a thing we are going to do

So everyone was down for the live poem thing but finding an appropriate time for us all to iMeet will be a pain in the ass so instead we will make exquisite corpses. if you don't know what those are then that last sentence sounds way more badass than it is, but not really, because this is a badass idea.

We're going to (yes we are going to do this, you are going to do this, i am bossing you around) write a poem where we don't get to see what the others wrote until i compile it, except for the last 6 words. the first one will be a basic experiment so it'll have a little more structure to it than later ones to see what we come up with.

The first one: you get three lines and the poem will altogether be in first person but there can be other characters and things in it too so it ain't so lonely. we'll go in reverse alphabetical order, so it's joe then ryan then me then jeremy then dan. the theme for this first one will be death because as we are DEATHMARCH it should be a good jumping off point, also for it being an exquisite corpse it is a neet theem.

Joe if you e-mail me your lines, then i will email ryan the last six words, and then ryan email me, and so on until dan sends me his three lines, then i'll compile it. this requires very little effort on anyone's part except mine, it requires an easy-to-intermediate amount of effort on my part, and i look forward to doing it so it should be fun okay go


  1. we'll do the email thing because if we just posted the last six words here, we'd all be able to see those words and that could POISON OUR MINDS FOR LATER LINES

  2. if it's reverse abc it should start with ryan. JUST SAYIN'

  3. Shaun forgot to mention that I have changed my name to Joe WcHugh

  4. Also, I forgot we were going to do this. Thanks for bringing it up again, Gone Shannon (hahahahahahahahahah omgomgomgomgogomgomg!1!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1hoyl shyyyyyyttt!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

  5. yeah i don't remember anything about his, but ok. i'm in.

  6. So Ryan's going to email his lines to you Shaun and then you are going to give me the last few words of his lines so I can write my lines, and then that formula will continue in reverse alpha?


say a thing
