fsm poetry?

Postby gannstboy on Mon Jul 13, 2009 11:06 am

has anyone used any of the non rhyming, non musical poetic forms (haiku, diamonte, etc.) to honor the noodly one?
i think that it would be cool to assemble a book of fsm poetry. i have a few haikus:
Your Noodly Grace:
Flying Spaghetti Monster

Wow, Flying Spaghetti Monster is exactly 7 syllables. That opens up amazing possiblities...

unfortutately, the only Haiku I can think of right now isn't very Pastafarian.

Wrestlemania,
Wrestlemania, oh boy,
Wrestlemania.

But yeah, we tend to focus on Pslams and Songs around here. We could do with a few Haikus and odd poetry!

Funny, I pronounce both 'new' and 'nude' as if they start with 'ny',
but not 'noodle' or 'noodly' which I pronounce 'nood-ul' and 'nood-lee'.

Approximate pronunciations, of course!

Edited to add: I thought that haiku had to be about the seasons.

Well, that depends on how strictly you want to adhere to the traditional guidelines. The wikipedia article is very informative.

generally, a poem is considered haiku if it follows the 5-7-5 syllable format.

For example...

The Vodka...
It brings me closer
To his noodly goodness.

No, wait. That don't work. It's hard to make a Pastafarian haiku after three glasses of vodka.
