Found Poem A found poem is a poem made from news paper/magazines. You would make a title for example: “diet”.

The title has to also be from a news paper article or, you can start the poem off with the title similarities so that people would be able to guess the subject. It always has a theme. These are fun to do, but also challenging to find the proper words, it might take some time to finish, but at the end, the poem sound amazing.
