Genius read: Poetry of the political fundraising e-mail subject line


Micah L. Sifry constructed two genius poems from the text of subject lines from political fundraising e-mails, all sent since June 7.

The first one is from e-mails sent on behalf of Barack Obama’s campaign:

Wonderful news
Romney in a landslide?
Hell no
You know it, I know it
Dinner with the Obamas
Fly out to meet us
Before the polls open
We’re getting outspent
Take this seriously
Cat’s out of the bag
I will be outspent
Sad to say
