English – Found Poem

Magnanimous I am, waiving the past,
swigging once more from my parasol flask.
fifty percent, sixty. It makes no difference,
Riley is to be a slave at my pleasure,
I will put him to work, pulling rats from hats.

This here is my found poem. The words I extracted are from Eoin Colfer’s “The Hangman’s Revolution” the second book in his “W.A.R.P” series. This book is the ongoing story of agent Sovano and Riley, however now they have changed the past resulting in monumental consequences to history, and one way or another they are going to fix it.

This whole story’s theme 80 pages into the book is about scrapping all you can to survive. In the poem I wrote from the villain’s perspective, the author actually included a rhyme which I somehow missed and so by analysing a few pages for this found poem I managed to find this rhyming technique. The bottom line here is that I used one technique from the book in the poem itself. The way this may effect the audience is through such a simple rhyme symbolising how this character is actually quite the opposite.

  1. This poem/book has very interesting and hard vocabulary and I had a hard time understanding it. From the poem i know there is a slave. By hearing the explanation it seems like a very cool interesting book.

  2. I like they rhymes and i think your found poem flows very well and a I think that it shows a lot of the villain’s personality. 😀

  4. I think this poem is representing the book well, even though it’s in small paragraph. The part which says “fifty percent, sixty. It makes no difference” made me think more about the book, and by using many interesting vocabularies, it gave me great information about the book.
