Slain Train or An Intentionally Bad Poem About a Train Crash

Slain Train or An Intentionally Bad Poem About a Train Crash

A Poem by Platus

This poem was written for a contest that asked for intentionally bad work. It was inspired by the work of William McGonagall, the worst poet in the English language.


The train was a pain

On the track’s strain

So it was slain

While the children were playing

And it wasn’t a game

And it really seemed lame

But the train was planed

Over the ocean

It fell into the water

And hit with a crash

And the passengers were slain

And they died

© 2010 Platus

Author's Note

Again, I am not actually a bad poet (well, not this bad at least).

Amazing. It sounds almost like a very twisted nursery rhyme. I agree it's not exactly the best poem out there, but I like the refreshing way it was intentionally written.

Keep Writing. ^___^

This was hilarious! Especially that last line! Ironically, this is alot better than alot of 'bad' poems I've seen out there! XD Very in McGonagall's style, clever!
