Fakepoets Recap

Marianne Moore’s tweet about the ostrich’s enemies showed that animals can have some of the same qualities as humans (protecting their young, fearing predators) but also showing courage and survival while facing adversity (man, other predators).

<blockquoteclass=”twitter-tweet” lang=”en”><p lang=”en” dir=”ltr”><a href=”https://twitter.com/FS_Ford”>@FS_Ford</a&gt; The greed of man will forever be our biggest enemy <a href=”https://twitter.com/hashtag/vizpoem?src=hash”>#vizpoem</a&gt; <a href=”https://twitter.com/hashtag/fakepoets?src=hash”>#fakepoets</a></p>&mdash; Marianne Moore (@MooreOstrich) <a href=”https://twitter.com/MooreOstrich/status/611108013479309312″>June 17, 2015</a></blockquote> <script asyncsrc=”//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js” charset=”utf-8″></script>

The tweet by Angelica P about the Sandpiper shows that even though the sandpiper is busily search for grain while dodging the water and ignoring the roar of the ocean, the detail in the poem makes you feel like you are at the ocean.

<blockquoteclass=”twitter-tweet” lang=”en”><p lang=”en” dir=”ltr”><a href=”https://twitter.com/sandpiper180″>@sandpiper180</a&gt; ithought sandpipers looked for little bugs when they are running through the tide. <a href=”https://twitter.com/hashtag/fakepoets?src=hash”>#fakepoets</a&gt; <a href=”https://twitter.com/hashtag/vizpoem?src=hash”>#vizpoem</a></p>&mdash; Angelica P (@hgisigh2) <a href=”https://twitter.com/hgisigh2/status/610935671201599490″>June 16, 2015</a></blockquote> <script asyncsrc=”//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js” charset=”utf-8″></script>

The tweet about the Snake poem was relevant because it shows that just because something is “different” doesn’t mean it will do you harm.  Just the same as people are, don’t be afraid of what you don’t know.

<blockquoteclass=”twitter-tweet” lang=”en”><p lang=”en” dir=”ltr”>If I drink from a water fountain next to you but didn't present any harm what would you do to me <a href=”https://twitter.com/hashtag/vizpoem?src=hash”>#vizpoem</a&gt; <a href=”https://twitter.com/hashtag/fakepoets?src=hash”>#fakepoets</a></p>&mdash; The Snake (@nikestore69) <a href=”https://twitter.com/nikestore69/status/611725032637730816″>June 19, 2015</a></blockquote> <script asyncsrc=”//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js” charset=”utf-8″></script>
