Brief Definition

A Vogon poem is a type of poem invented by writer Douglas Adams in his science-fiction fantasy series The Hitchhiker's Guide to The Galaxy. Known first and foremost for their bureaucratic unpleasantness, Vogons are fictional aliens who come from the planet Vogsphere to tear down the Earth to build an intergalactic highway express route in its place. One of their most famous traits is the fact that they write "the third worst poetry in The universe."

In different iterations of The Hitchhiker's Guide, from Douglas Adams's BBC radio series to a Hitchhiker's Guide interactive fiction game which was later made by Infocom, several different examples of Vogon poetry can be found. One poem's reading is said, in Adams's imagined universe, to have been so bad that it killed four audience members from internal bleeding when it was read.

Stylistically it is loosely comparable to nonsense verse, and may bring to mind another famous poem, Lewis Carroll's "Jabberwocky." 

Vogon Poem Example


Hotwired the orgasmatron
headed out on sixty-nine
know there’s nothin up ahead
and even less behind.
Pagination, pixilation
nothing seems to work
maybe just  I’m gettin old
maybe just a jerk
off that is
gee whiz
can’t ya take a joke?
Lost in smoke
years since last toke 
days since last drink
I think.
As ya'll can see
rhyme don't agree 
with me, 
so back to blank 
slate, mate
and the cheque's 
on you.
Iambic to the core
commonman’s  snore
such a bore.
Straight from the soul
infinite whole
or is that hole,
wasn’t  this 
supposed to be 
Never know
have to go
