This will not impress you unless you try it yourself.
My poet friend shared this with me because he knows I like poems that do cool things. This one is a Square Stanza, Futility Closet by Lewis Carroll. It’s unique because it reads the same both across and down:
Kudos, Lewis Carroll! I’m convinced it was the shrooms.
So the other day, I decided to challenge myself and write one of these poems because I’m the kind of weird obsessive person who does things like name the 50 states within 2 minutes because I saw them do it on Friends.
All I can say is, it seems easy until you do it. But it’s FUNNNNN, especially if you’re like me and are intrigued by puzzles because you think you can conquer them all.
Lewis Carroll’s made more sense, but he was part genius and, well, I was just procrastinating more important things.
And just because this post is boring, here’s something you don’t see every day:
Yes, that’s a girl sitting on a camel, strolling through a parking lot in downtown Lubbock, TX. 2011.
I don’t even wish I were kidding. It’s a CAMEL for goodness’ sakes. That’s awesome.
