Welcome to The 28th Weekly Terrible Poetry Contest.
Buckle your safety belts, keep your arms and legs inside, and review the manual if you’re worried about how to operate a terrible poem. We encourage mis-meter, almost-rhymes, and intentional clichés on this rocket ship.
Here are the specifics for this week:
- Topic: The excitement of summer vacation (or winter, if you’re down South).
- Length: Postcard-sized. If you write rather small, you can fit more in your poem.
- Rhyme if you wish; grandma probably won’t be able to read your handwriting anyway.
- Make it terrible. Not only will granny not know if you crossed your t’s but might also misconstrue a few of your words for some she thought she heard her favorite news anchor warn about the young’uns using these days.
- Rating: PG or more decent. We’re having good, clean fun this summer.
You have till 8:00 a.m. MST next Friday (June 7) to submit a poem.
Use the form if’n you don’t want yours up till next week.
For immediate fame and gratification from your peers, include your poem or a link to it in the comments below.
Tell your friends, your TwoFacebook crowd, your Tweeters; whatever. Spread the word and share the love.
Most of all, have fun!
