Snowball Technique

The following poem is a snowball, another OULIPO technique, in which each line has one word and each word has one extra letter than the previous line. I like this technique, but it becomes much harder as you add on the letters. You can go to this link to learn more about the snowball technique.



I
do
not
know
peace.

Sneaky,
gradual
measures
destroyed
everything.

Hatemongers
masterminded
destituteness,
depravednesses,
destructiveness.
