The Weekly Terrible Poetry Contest

Welcome to the Weekly Terrible Poetry Contest #44!

Not sure about churning out something poetic and terrible? Read my basic outline here. Enter at your own risk.

Here are the specifics for this week:

  1. It’s time for another Acrostic Poem. Let’s pick a Topic of Celebrities.
    An acrostic is simple; write a word (say, like the celebrity’s name or favorite habit) down the left side, and then do a haphazard job of filling in with your poem.
  2. Length should be dependent on the word you pick, and how verbose you feel at each letter.
  3. Rhyme if you wish. Don’t if you wish.
  4. Make it terrible!! Make our eyes beg our brain to stop reading, just stop. Please; they would rather read grocery tabloids than whatever you just churned out.
  5. Celebrities and their choices can get a bit racy, so we’ll up the Rating to PG-13.

You have till 8:00 a.m. MST next Friday (September 27) to submit a poem.

Use the form below if you want to be anonymous for a week.

If not, and for a more social experience, include your poem or a link to it in the comments.

Have fun!

Also, if anyone wishes to select a topic or be a judge for a week, I’m open to consider either.

    Oh, my current celebrity knowledge is so miserably lacking! Hmm. I’ll have to think about this one.

        Most of the celebrities that I know well are dead. 🙂 Hey, maybe there’s a poem in there!

    This hill is famous (i.e. a celebrity)

    Taumatawhakatangihangakoauauotamateapokaiwhenuakitanatahu!
    Ah!
    Utterly long is the name of the hill not far from where I live.
    Many shorten it to something
    Actually a lot less difficult to pronounce:
    Taumata.
    And that’s where I’ll stop.

    Arrogant

    liar

    extremist

    x-rated
    
a charlatan

    New Yorker

    deluded

    egotistical

    racist


    Brexit will make him millions
    
ought to make his pals billions

    remain was always his position

    it changed to suit his self mission

    self deluded craving celebrity privileged Eton boy


    Destined to play as Nero with his new burning country toy

    england should be for the English he proudly shouts

    privately whispering he’s actually not from these whereabouts
    
Funding his lovers and friends with public money

    easily avoiding the rules like some corrupt Easter Bunny
    
fibbing and lying is his way to con the masses
    
flippantly poking fun at those from the working classes

    evading visits from the police to one of his shouting matches
    
lovers are kept quiet maybe with gifts paid for from our hard earned taxes


    Jovial and bumbling are what the media laps up

    only reporting the fake image and never about how he is so corrupt
    
he said he couldn’t live on his huge ministerial wage
    
no thought for us as he takes us back to the Victorian Age

    so a man without principles or any human decency

    only interested in one person and slayer of our democracy
    
not a man of the people just a wannabe celebrity member of the aristocracy
