As you may know, if you have been following me on Twitter, I started being properly active mid-June 2020. Surprisingly, that move leads to me posting more tweets and some of them are improvised little poems. I thought it would be a shame to lose them and decided to compile them together every month so that I can read them once in a while. Unfortunately, I forgot to post the September edition but the good news is that we have an October mashup, it’s 11:11 11/11, welcome to my improvised Septober 2020 Twitter poetry.
Fittingly enough the first entry is quite late through the month, about how late I was when publishing the August edition.

Forgot my poems newsletter
There it is dear friends, at last

Next is about the virtue of working hard rather than complaining. Complaining is cheap, working pays dues and holidays.
Discussing ideas is right, complaining is wrong— Jean-Dominique Nguele (@CodingNagger) September 19, 2020
Show resolve, put in the work, be strong
For that when your times come, you're ready
Fight with all you've got, then rest easy#poetry #poetrycommunity
Okay I don’t know if that one counts but I’ll but it anyways because it’s my blog and I do what I want. What are you gonna do, not read?
Creative always— Jean-Dominique Nguele (@CodingNagger) September 19, 2020
Disciplined to an extent
Inting is not an option
Never stop pushing
Great at some stuff
Average at some things
Gravitas when needed
Engineer in software
Rage and passion are fuel
This one definitely came from spending too much time on Twitter with a timeline full of people posturing that they care when they don’t.
Cops die, blacks die, people die, politics "cry"— Jean-Dominique Nguele (@CodingNagger) September 25, 2020
Pleading for votes, looking away, keeping eyes dry
Time to walk a step back and stop the crap
Ladies and gentlemen let's wake up, it's a wrap#poetry
I’m not veganophobe, I have vegan friends, but…
Truth is, meat is strength, meat is power— Jean-Dominique Nguele (@CodingNagger) September 28, 2020
Nobody ever got stronger eating a flower
Sure, strength is mind and mind is might
But soy milk will never help you in a fight#poetry
October finally, it’s about time.
It's Thursday, ending a day of work— Jean-Dominique Nguele (@CodingNagger) October 1, 2020
Time where hands and laptop fork
This week almost came to an end
Yesterday feels like last weekend#poetry #poetrycommunity
This is London.
Morning everybody, sky’s grey— Jean-Dominique Nguele (@CodingNagger) October 3, 2020
Rise, shine, no time for decay
No I still don’t know how to drive
Ready to roll, it’s London, we’re live#poetrycommunity
Following my viewing of “The devil all the time” on Netflix I had a phase posting a lot of delusions gifs. Now that I see this I feel like I should do that again.
We know, roses are red, violets are blue— Jean-Dominique Nguele (@CodingNagger) October 5, 2020
Some deny it yet it'll always be true
You share your truth, your conclusions
But all I can hear is a bunch of… pic.twitter.com/Ag2oIzJb9K
What can I say, I like working. Working hard allows you to test yourself, it builds character, creates the fold for poetry.
Put in the work, build that freak streak— Jean-Dominique Nguele (@CodingNagger) October 11, 2020
Other options turn you weak, it's bleak
Rise your head, keep it in the game, game
No time to look at others to blame, blame
Poesie du soir, bonsoir!
Surprisingly, you will need to figure that one out for yourself.
Angels don't fall, we tear them down— Jean-Dominique Nguele (@CodingNagger) October 27, 2020
Drag them to the mud, turn them brown
For we hate their sight high above us
We rather see them fail, fall among us#PoetryTuesday
Finally, the Halloween finale.
Trick or treat, go take the streets— Jean-Dominique Nguele (@CodingNagger) October 31, 2020
Hunting hard for these bready sweets
Careful that nobody steals your spleen
Look alive, look alive! It's Halloween!
Fun fact, I originally scheduled this for 8am then realised it could be funnier to post 66 minutes after 6am. You're welcome. pic.twitter.com/r51OSAmH9C
Thank you for checking my improvised Septober 2020 Twitter poetry. Don’t hesitate to follow me on Twitter to seize them as they are fresh off my mind. Not that It will surprise you but I don’t just write poems there. Sometimes I tweet about around tech and also life in general. There will definitely more frequent updates there than here as I can just improvise tweets which is much harder to do with blog posts like the last one. See you next time!
