I pronounce it phonetically
Throwing out mellow stoner monkeys
Trading with the stollen pillow donkeys.
Biting your arm off with midnight spiders.
Doing doughnuts with all night riders.
Playing that funky doughnut monkey
Dropping space mines on base lines
Controlling minds to shake your behinds
Be thumping them drums on a carved canoe
Busted window out whistling like, how do you do?
I don’t think I know another word. How about you?
I got you, Blue. I think I know a few.
How about getting your ass out of the zoo?
Singing gitchy gitchy gitchy gitchy Gucci goo.
I been rocking this shit since I was in the cradle
Spinning out rhymes like they was a dreidel.
I got my bottle made out of clay.
I been spitting mamma’s milk since the early days.
Still praying for the day that I might get paid.
My mamma gave me my life, taught me what to believe,
Taught me how I think the world should be received.
The first new thing I buy her will be a weave.
It will be a weave?! That’s racist, Steve!
Wait… who, the hell told you my name was Steve?
FLARF is a wild style of poetry that started as a joke. People noticed that no matter how bad your poems were Poetry.com would tell you that you had won their poetry prize. Then, they would try to scam you out of your money. So devious poets started sending the crappiest poetry they could write to Poetry.com. Even that would win the poetry prize. These poets began sending each other their crappy poems, and eventually it became a legitimate poetry style. If you want to read more about the FLARF or any of the other poetry terms, check out the glossary of poetic terms from the Poetry Foundation at: https://www.poetryfoundation.org/learn/glossary-terms
Google painting is a type of collaging that primarily uses internet search results and Google’s search prediction capabilities to generate quasi-random phrases. The technique helps jumpstart creativity with strange juxtapositions, broken syntax, and internet speak.
