The A Mused Poetry Contest 4/17/2021 – 5/14/2021

It’s past time for another A Mused Poetry Contest. I blame the management. And aliens.

  1. This month’s Theme is a political campaign slogan and/or speech. You’ve heard the usual promises, mud-slinging, and appeals to special interest groups -now, USE THEM.
  2. Gone are the days of the Lincoln/Douglas debates; keep your poem’s Length brief and snappy enough to… oh, man; you’ve already lost the audience.
  3. Rhyming is up to your campaign manager.
  4. This will be broadcast to general audiences, so keep the Rating clean -or, at least realize that some ****ing ****s will be censored.
  5. What’s most important? HUMOR! When do we want it? By next month!

You have till 10:00 a.m. MST next MONTH (May 14) to submit a poem.

Use the form, below, to keep your record clean until results are posted.

Otherwise, include your poem in the comments, link to it in the comments, or leave a note that you’ve written one and stuck it on your own site in the comments. You cannot just link back to my post because WordPress is stupid and I will not receive it.

    A sitting member

    A vote for me is a vote for wit
    The other candidates are a pile of nonsense.

    I promise I will never quit
    The other candidates are a pile of rubbish.

    My policies will be a hit
    The other candidates are a pile of drivel.

    I will lower your taxes a bit
    The other candidates are a pile of gobbledygook.

    You might think I’m a git
    The other candidates are a pile of malarkey.

    Truth Over Facts

    No one pays a dime
    Peace will reign sublime
    Children will be fine
    We will fix the clime
    And you’ll be happy

      Ha! You went a similar direction as me. *sigh* People just don’t vote on what really makes them happy.

        It’s true, or is it a fact? By the way, that’s an actual quote from our beloved Mr. President.
