Happy Talk

Annihilation, decapitation, eradication, extermination,
Incineration, liquidation, molestation, obliteration,
Electrocution, final solution,
Genocide, homicide, infanticide, matricide, patricide,
Burn, chop, club, cut, gas,
Hang, hate, kill, knife, maim,
Rape, shoot, slash, slay, slice,
Death, death, death, death, death.

This is my attempt to write the world's worst poem. Please note how many of the words are in alphabetical order to prevent scanning.

In August 2000, Poetry.com, a vanity publisher, selected this poem for publication, and as a semi-finalist, "because of its unique perspective and your artistic vision". Yeah right!
