Today, we challenge you to try this out yourself by writing a list poem in which all the items are made-up names. If band names don’t inspire, how about a list of titles for romantic novels?
Some guys were sitting around one day
We need a name for the crap we play
Something clever, not too cute
How about ‘The Dancing Groot’?
That got one cheer but three more groans
Maybe something more our own
‘30 Odd Foot of Grunts’ is taken
How about ‘We’re Stirred Not Shaken’?
‘The Forgotten Four’
or ‘We Don’t Suck’
‘Shut The Door’
Something about ‘Luck’?
‘Snapchat This’ or ‘Twitter That’
Maybe just ‘How Not To Be A Prat’?
‘Once Were Lords’
‘Once Were Jocks’
‘We Like it Loud’
‘One In A Crowd’
Hang on now we’re getting silly
How about ‘Steamboat Willie’
That’s copyright and not our style
Maybe we should think awhile
Debate went on throughout the night
The quest to find the one just right
Just before dawn they found a name
They were finally ready, all set for fame
Now they needed a song or two
How does it start? Doop da do?
