Welcome to the LAST biweekly Terrible Poetry Contest before summertime (here in the Northern Hemisphere)!
If you still aren’t sure what terrible poetry is or how to write it, read here. Now; on with the show:
- Last time, Not Pam‘s poem won! As such, she’s chosen the Theme and Form of this go-around to be a sonnet about soup.
A sonnet is a fourteen-line poem written in iambic pentameter, with a rhyming pattern.
Soup is the liquid version of solid food.
- Need to know the Length? It couldn’t be fourteen lines….
(But if you go half that, we’ll count it as bonus points toward being terrible.)
- To Rhyme is what tradition says to.
- So, Terrible is what we all need. A soup or stew are what we all feed.
- Rating: PG or cleaner. What’s in your bowl?
You have till 8:00 a.m. MDT on Thursday, June 9 to submit a poem.
Use the form below if you want to be anonymous for a week. It hasn’t gone through unless you see a message saying it has.
For a more social experience, include your poem or a link to it in the comments. Please alert me if your pingback or poem does not show up within a day.
The winner gains bragging rights, a badge, and a grand prize I’m willing to mail if s/he is willing to be mailed*.
