Welcome to the weekly Terrible Poetry Contest!
Read HERE to learn what terrible poetry means. It’s all there. Stop asking. And now that you’re a pro, here are this week’s specific instructions:
- Last week’s winner, Dumbestblogger, picked a limerick on the Theme of Grain. That’s right: a limerick about grain. Click here or here or here or here or here to see times we’ve done limericks. They’re one of my favorite forms and are fun!
A limerick is five lines: AABBA, in anapestic meter.
- The Length is five lines.
- A traditional limerick Rhymes. Stay traditional, like 100% whole wheat.
- Make it terrible! I’m not certain how rotten grains can be, but have great faith in your ability regardless. If nothing else, we’ll be nourished by carbohydrates.
- Rating: PG-13 or cleaner. You do know what a limerick is, right?
You have till 8:00 a.m. MST IN TWO WEEKS: Thursday, March 3 to submit a poem. I have things this week, so we’re running the contest an extra week longer. Yay!
