To make a dada poem
Take a newspaper.
Take a pair of scissors.
Choose an article as long as you are planning to make your poem.
Cut out the article.
Then cut out each of the words that make up this article & put them in a bag.
Shake it gently.
Then take up the scraps one after the other in the order in which they left the bag.
The poem will be like you.
Tristan Tzara (French 1896 - 1963)
