Hello there! Welcome to the FIFTIETH Weekly Terrible Poetry Contest! Not only does that mean that we’ve been poking fun at poetry for 50 weeks, but that we are almost to the birthday of terrible poeting!
I’m so proud!
If you’re just joining us, here‘s a basic run-down of how to write a terrible poem. I look more at destruction of construction and making mincemeat out of meter than I do at writing about something awful. Got it? Excellent.
Here are the specifics for this week:
- The Topic is FIFTY!
- The Length is FIFTY WORDS!
- Rhyming is not necessary. It’s already difficult enough to write only 50 words, Daddy-o.
- The terribleness is fifty -I mean, Make it terrible! 50-year-old members of the 50+ community will want to deluge you with 50 minutes of 50 historical events from 1969 (50 years ago).
- Let’s keep the Rating at PG or cleaner, by golly!
You have till 8:00 a.m. MST next Friday (November 8) to submit a poem.
Use the form below to be anonymous for a week.
Or, for a more social experience, include your poem or a link to it in the comments. If you don’t see your link within a day, leave a comment inquiring why.
Above all, have fun!
