Finding Everyday Inspiration: BBC Poem

Finding Everyday Inspiration: BBC Poem

Part of WordPress’s writing course Finding Everyday Inspiration.

Today’s writing task doesn’t involve writing. Just as well. The instructions are to mine what’s mine. One suggestion is to look at your own tweets and use them to create something. Another suggestion is to look at your tweets and use an automatic tweets-to-poems generator. I’m game. Or rather, I’m algorithm.

The Poetweet linked above didn’t generate anything remotely readable from my tweets, so I resorted to plagiarising the produce of another Twitter account. I turned to the authority of BBC. BBC as the news publisher—I beg you not to look up the definition of BBC in the Urban Dictionary. I’m serious.

An inexplicable packet of crisps found in the supermarket

I swear I have nothing to do with the half-open packet of crisps pictured above. I found it like this. Also, I know, you probably call them chips, be my guest. And, if you disregarded my advice and did look up BBC in the Urban Dictionary, serve you right.

Back to the BBC poem: I used the Poetweet but edited the result. It’s a recipe. Please don’t try it at home. Remember what happened the last time when you didn’t take me seriously and looked up the BBC…


Maligned insect…

  1. Honestly Mara, you CANNOT say don’t look it up and expect that they won’t! I did of course look it up, because…well, that’s what you do when someone tells you not to. I have been educated and will never look at the BBC in the same light again 🙂


    1. Haha, it’s funny, isn’t it, someone warns you not to do something and you do it anyway because you want to find out for yourself. I’m the same. I hope you’re not traumatised. I am a bit 😉

    1. Sorry for exposing you to the alternative BBC. Though I did warn you 😉 This prompt was one I enjoyed a lot, try the poem generator, even with different accounts, it’s fun to see what it comes up with!
