*YAWN* ‘Mornin’, ma peeps. Welcome to December and to our fourth week of The Weekly Terrible Poetry Contest.
If you’re new, welcome! Read over my advice on truly sucking at poetry, then read these rules, then enter:
- The topic is That Object That Always Breaks in Your House. In It’s a Wonderful Life, George Bailey keeps pulling off that darn banister knob. Chez moi, it’s a heat register originally glued under my kitchen island counter. Maybe yours is a loose bit of carpet or a lightbulb that burns out within a week.
- What’s the limit? Word count needs to be between 3 and 153 words. In mathematics terms, that means 3<P<153.
- Rhyming’s up to you. Do what you do.
- And, most importantly: the poem needs to be terrible. I want your mom to pause before telling you that …well, your penmanship has certainly improved in the last few years and that you know she loves you no matter what, right?
- Keep it PG-Rated. Mom’s going to read it, after all.
Think you can do it? You have till 8:00 a.m. MST next Friday (December 7, 2018) to submit.
Post your poem or the specific link to it in the comments.
