Vogon poetry is, of course, the third worst in the universe. The second worst is that of Azgoths Of Kria. During a recitation by their poet master Grunthos the Flatulent of his poem "Ode to a small lump of green putty I found in my armpit one midsummer morning" four of his audience died of internal hommerhageing and the President of the Mid-Galactic Arts Nobbling Council barely survived by knawing his leg off. The poet also wrote "My favorite bathtime gurgles". The very worst poetry perished along with it's creator Nancy Milestone Jennings in the destruction of planet Earth. On no account let a vogon read poetry to you. But i will do it to you!! If you double cross me.

See, see the obtuse sky
Marvel at its big derogatory green depths.
Tell me, grotos do you
Wonder why the sloth ignores you?
Why its foobly stare
makes you feel bespeckeled.
I can tell you, it is
Worried by your bandersnash facial growth
That looks like
An onion.
What's more, it knows
Your erute potting shed
Smells of squashed locust.
Everything under the big obtuse sky
Asks why, why do you even bother?
You only charm marmite.

I can't believe I just let my mother know bits and pieces from this thread. She is in stitches and can't believe we carried on like this on an immigration forum. Thank god she has a sense of humor.

So, what happened to the poetry?

Completely useless. They won't mow the lawn or push around the snow blower and all those things a man is supposed to do.
I'm sure you have appliances that can mow your lawn, or at least the bikini line
