Brief Definition

A blitz poem is a type of poem that has short phrases accompanied by images and has a rhythmic reputation and rapid flow.

This type of poem always begin with a short phrase, the next line begins with a different phrase but has the first word same as the one in the first line, each of the 48 first lines should be short and contain at least two words.

The phrases in the third and fourth line begin with the last word contained in the second phrase. The last word that is in the fourth line becomes the beginning word in the fifth and sixth line and this behavior continues in such a way that each subsequent pair begins with the last word that above them hence creating a pattern of repetition.

This pattern is observed through the forty-eight lines and when it reaches the last two lines, the lines repeat the last word of line forty-eight and the last word of line forty-seven. the title of this type of poem contains only three words and must have some sort of preposition or maybe have conjunction that joins the word beginning in the third line to the first word of the forty-seventh line in that order.

It should also be noted that the blitz poem contains no punctuation. this is because when reading, it is done very quickly and pausing is only done for the purposes of breathing.

Blitz Poem Example

Chains of Colonialism

Chains of Colonialism        

With guns they came
With whips and chains
Chains to capture the Dark Continent
Chains snaking across Africa
Africa blessed by nature
Africa a precious jewel
Jewel coveted by imperialists
Jewel stained with blood
Blood of the disenfranchised
Blood of innocents 
Innocents slaughtered
Innocents subjugated
Subjugated like cattle
Subjugated nonentities					
Nonentities to colonial masters			
Nonentities bowing to alien flags 
Flags of oppression
Flags of exploitation and domination
Domination of inferiors
Domination of natural resources
Resources robbed
Resources nurtured with sweat and tears
Tears of those with no voices
Tears of those whipped and silenced
Silenced by superiority
Silenced by weapons and fear
Fear of foreign invaders
Fear of certain death
Death of ancient civilization
Death of treasured culture
Culture stripped and raped
Culture battered and fragmented
Fragmented destiny
Fragmented people 
People crushed to the ground  
People with no more sweet songs
Songs of freedom and happier times 
Songs of nationalism
Nationalism and solidarity 
Nationalism thwarted
Thwarted to divide and conquer
Thwarted to castrate minds and bodies
Bodies chained and beaten 
Bodies killed for defiance
Defiance against injustice 
Defiance against colonialism
Colonialism in the name of God
Colonialism in the name of kings
