Over the years, there has been a large amount of verse (and worse) published in the unlikely(!) environment of the USENET creation/evolution discussion group. This site attempts to provide the undiscerning reader with a comprehensive collection of all the poetry that was first (and usually only) published in those hollow halls.

The poems appear in as close to the original form as possible; no attempt has been made to evolve the styles or correct the scansion, though a few spelling errors have been humiliated. Almost all of the poems originally appeared untitled, which is probably a good thing.


Plain verse
Pastiche, parody and satire
The Ed Conrad Collection (not for the squeamish)
Song of anomalocaris
And a few that defy description
