"Oh freddled gruntbuggly,
Thy micturations are to me
As plurdled gabbleblotchits on a lurgid bee.
Groop, I implore thee, my foonting turlingdromes,
And hooptiously drangle me with crinkly bindlewurdles,
Or I will rend thee in the gobberwarts
With my blurglecruncheon, see if I don't!"

1st Round is for Acceptance
2nd Round is for analysis of the poem

Any quotations from the television series, radio broadcast, book, or movie are not allowed.


I am a middle-class Vogon poet earning 25 000 to 50 000 units of Vogonian currency per year under the oppression of our overlord, Vogon Captain, Prostentic Vogon Jeltz. I claim that my poetry is of the highest possible quality known to the universe.
I am excited to begin the analysis of our most beloved poetry, those of the classics and perhaps a bit of my own.

Challenge accepted. Let us begin.

As I remember correctly, Vogon poetry is not the worst in the universe.

I'm interested in the subject, but I'm concerned that the instigator has not sufficiently laid out the parameters of the contest. Con intends to prove Vogon poetry is not terrible, but refuses to debaters to rely on the sole sources of reference that might establish the normative subjective response to that fictional body of work. Are you just trying to trick Pro into a position that can't be defended?

I would argue on one side or another provided a translation of the terms, but I just don't get it.

It may mean that deep down inside, everyone just wants to be loved.
