My latest #transliterations prompt response. I did not follow instructions. I did find every single line on though.

Edit: Thanks, loves. Apologies for not responding individually to most, etc. I've been at work all day (I'm still at work) and this was a pleasant surprise.

Daily Deviation

Given 2012-11-29
To Be a Charming Female by ~CailinLiath is found poetry at its wittiest. As the suggester points out, "the poet has made the lines their own." Also suggested by `zebrazebrazebra. ( Suggested by SCFrankles and Featured by neurotype )

Brilliant use of engrish/chinglish. :) I have no idea how you managed it, but you somehow put all of this into a form that reads (relatively?) smoothly, fits the concept in the title and mostly makes sense. I think even without knowing that it is engrish found poetry, it's a brilliant piece. :heart:

Glad I found Found Poetry poetry.
New to me, lost on others,
Sure to be used, forgotten by them.
Wuv it.

This is so brilliant. (Did I comment before? I don't remember. Still brilliant.)

SO clever! I laughed out loud at some points, nodded at others, recalled feminist literature lectures at others, and could not help thinking of a penis throughout. :B In short, I love it. Excellent found poetry. Congrats on a fine DD!

LOVELY. This is very interesting. :heart:

I see why there are people complaining that it doesn't make sense. However, I think not making sense makes perfect sense (or something). We're given so much contradictory and nonsensical advice about how to be perfect or desirable, one has to wonder if any of it is worth listening to.

What poem was these originally? I was confused at first and then I was ROFLMAO

Each line was taken from from several different posts, usually from instructions and occasionally more than one line comes from the same post.
