Poem.0 (Poem-A-Day 17)

Tosh.0For today’s prompt, write a pop culture poem. I guess I broke out the Bon Jovi a day early, eh? But hey, write a poem about Bon Jovi or Van Halen; write a poem about the Kardashians (or don’t–and say you did); write a poem about a popular SNL skit; write a poem about Dr. Who or Downton Abbey; write a poem about any kind of popular culture thing-a-ma-bob you wish. In fact, write three! (Just kidding; you only need to write one poem–but seriously, write three and be sure to add a little more cowbell.)


I don’t watch TV
Except for sports

That establishes my reputation
As a counter-culture poet
But still a manly man
And it’s a lie

I’m just a boy and
I watch plenty of television
Most educationally Tosh.0
It’s important to keep up
With internet memes
And blurred breasts
And pixelated penises
And puke videos
So many puke videos
Buckets of barf
Rivers of regurgitant
Through yawning chasms
To waterfalls of vomit

But they need more fart jokes
