Found Poetry

In our creative writing class we learned about a new kind of poetry: found poetry. Found poetry is created by taking words from Google searches, signs, text messages, scrap pieces of paper, basically anywhere and creating poetry out of your "found" words and phrases. Here is my attempt at found poetry:

Public Service Announcement:

Clowns are creepy
The props they use are visually and emotionally disturbing
They’ll set you on fire
You’ll cry
Because you’ll smell
And you’ll have to find another gynecologist
And I won’t have to listen to you anymore
