Welcome to the second Weekly Terrible Poetry Contest. I am your hostess, Chelsea Owens.
Please, please read my wonderful blog post, How To Write Terrible Poetry, then note the following rules:
- The topic is sour grapes.
- It’s shorter than the last contest. Keep your poem below 150 words but above 5. That means anywhere from 6-149 words.
- To rhyme, or not this thyme? Again, up to you.
- And remember: the poem needs to be terrible. I want your high school poetry club teacher to pat you on the back for how many ways you failed to write the word ‘love’ or ‘agony.’ (Please do not literally use ‘love’ and ‘agony’ 50 times, assuming it’s a requirement.)
- Keep it PG-Rated.
Think you can do it? You have till 8:00 a.m. MST next Friday (November 23, 2018) to submit. Write it early ’cause I don’t want to see anyone coming here instead of to their family’s house for Thanksgiving.
Post your poem or the specific link to it in the comments.
