The Poetic Genius Society You like poetry and want to start writing your own verses?

You like poetry and want to start writing your own verses?

Year 7s may be the muses you have been longing to find for a long time. In Mrs. Baranska’s English class, students have studied poems by Norman Silver and got inspired to create their own poem after reading about a personified computer in Electronic Brain. Check out some fantastic pieces they have written in the voice of a super modern and overconfident mobile phone 😊

Electronic Brain by Norman Silver

I am an intelligent machine

I read computer weekly magazine

My ancestors were robotic,

their procedures idiotic

with not much going on behind the screen.

 

I am an intelligent machine:

everything I say is really mean.

My dictionary’s extensive,

my grammar’s comprehensive,

I’m never flummoxed by the unforeseen.

 

I am an intelligent machine

my program lets me vary my routine

I think it’s prejudicial

to call me artificial

I can tell you who I am and where we’ve been.

 

I am an intelligent machine

my processors are bug free and serene.

I have friendly interfaces,

gigantic databases …

OOPS! FATAL ERROR: MEMORY WIPED CLEAN!

 


SMART PHONE

Look Everywhere and you will see,

Me, me, me, me.

 

Your eyes are glued to my screen,

In MY Internet what you want, you will see.

I’m useful, practical and brainy,

I won’t break on a day which is rainy.

 

Look Everywhere and you will see,

Me, me, me, me.

 

My older versions are fat, I am thin

They only deserve to go to the bin.

But what do I do when I see,

A newer version, better than me?

IPHONE 999 ENTERED THE CHAT

I am the best iphone ever,

I can impress everyone.

It is sad for others whenever,

I am hard to outrun.

 

I am the best iphone ever,

My face ID is ultra new.

There wont be a day, never,

When I’ll go overdue.

 

I am the best iphone ever,

I am addicted to water.

I will be the best forever,

I’m worth more than a quarter.

 

I am the best iphone ever,

My camera quality is great.

I can take a good photo however,

No one else can relate.

 

I am the best iphone ever,

I am the best one yet.

But when the iphone 1k enters the chat,

I will be nothing, but hate.

A NEW PHONE

I am a brilliant brand new phone

I know anything anyone’s known

You use your face to turn me on

My battery lasts very long

I am the best phone ever shown

 

I am the best phone in existence

I help people who need assistance

It ain’t that hard to work me

So just use me, can’t you see

I am the best phone in existence

 

I can live a long fall undamaged

I am the very best of the best

Got memory better than the rest

With me all your E-mails are managed

I am the best phone, unchallenged

 

ALL UNSAVED MEMORY DELETED

THE MOBILE GENIUS

I am a smart rectangle:

I can call people from the other side of the country

I can find millions of facts immediately

I can also take people to the laundry

I am a little intelligent rectangle .

 

I am a smart rectangle:

I can buy anything without even moving

I can let you meet your bestie

I can put on music to make you grooving

I am a little intelligent rectangle

 

I am a smart rectangle:

I can take pictures of nature

I can let you play games

I am very mature

I am a little intelligent rectangle
