Calling All Martian Poets

Word has reached this office of the first Martian Poetry Slam. Commander Shannon Rupert and the rest of Crew 41 eagerly solicit your submissions by noon, January 9th. (Tight deadline, this.)

Winners will receive "eternal glory" (and, we presume, no money). Winning submissions will be read aloud by someone or other and archived for future broadcast at some time or other.

Carry on, Poets of the Stratosphere!

Is something that comes via the poem generator allowed?

The result is worse than bad, of course.

Does that matter?

Love, C.

I don't think the rules state that the poem actually has to come from a human being.

It's the Martian poetry slam, after all.

This is what one gets -- and tell me that this isn't worse than bad!

silver midnight.

lavender skies below above
it was walking restlessly alone
feeling legendary and mysterious
the only glimmering thing was the eyes
garnet of midnight when fox sleeps
silver mountain restlessly toward lavender skies
fox rests below

Is that not worse than bad?????

Yeah, P, it's me. For better or worse.

Constance, that poem is truly awful. And it's got all the necessary things to make it a good, or at least acceptable, poem, so you want to feel sorry for the author, who sort of has the right idea but who has no talent.

It's kind of a relief, really, to know it came from a machine. I know I won't hurt the author's feelings by pointing out that his work reeks.
