The A Mused Poetry Contest 9/12 – 9/18/2020

Hello, hello, hello! Welcome to the second A Mused Poetry Contest! The #1 goal is a good guffaw, so think of a few laughing lines and join in!

Here are the specifics for this week’s contest:

  1. The Theme is a snappy poem about Warning Labels. I find them hilarious, because my mind immediately constructs whatever scenario led to their being written.
  2. For Length, keep it between 3-150 words. The form is up to you.
  3. Rhyming is also up to you and always a great way to jazz up some writing.
  4. Keep things on the clean side for general audiences of a more mature nature (PG).
  5. Just MAKE US LAUGH. I want the hot coffee-spiller who licked the wrong side of the velcro whilst removing the tag on her pillow to have tears streaming down her face from your attempts.

You have till 10:00 a.m. MST next Friday (September 18) to submit a poem.

Use the form below to stay anonymous for a week.

Otherwise, for a more social experience, include your poem or a link to it in the comments. Drop a comment if you try to link back and it doesn’t show up within a day.

Have fun!

      1. Thanks Chelsea. Pleased that you liked it and over the moon that it won.
        I’m new to this blogging lark, so I will need to work out how to get my little medal onto my site AND how to put a link between our sites so that I can recommend yours.

  1. This 7¼” hand held circular saw is designed to cut 2x4s
    Please do not perform surgery with it
    That would be dumb
    If you wish to perform a murder this tool would be excellent
    We don’t condone murder
    You should probably use it for 2x4s

  2. The new toaster

    I don’t want to boast
    But I just bought a thing that makes toast.
    The instructions say: Plug in and use as one oughta.
    It warns: Not to be plugged in and used under water.
