To Make A Dadist Poem

Take a newspaper.
Take some scissors.
Choose from this paper an article the length you want to make your poem.
Cut out the article.
Next carefully cut out each of the words that make up this article and put them all in a bag.
Shake gently.
Next take out each cutting one after the other.
Copy conscientiously in the order in which they left the bag.
The poem will resemble you.
And there you are--an infinitely original author of charming sensibility, even though unappreciated by the vulgar herd.

by Tristan Tzara

Not this one again. I hate to be a fuddy-duddy but cut and paste just does'nt cut it for me and my vulgar herd, but I was thinking of attaching a paint brush to my horse's tail and back him up to a canvas especially on a fly-filled afternoon- -I could call it Dadist Art
How interesting. Anything goes!
I think I will try. Sounds interesting.
What a way to create a poem! Really strange and unaesthetic!
Very nicely as it is! 10++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
