Good Saturday morning to you all, even if you are not necessarily reading this on a morning nor a Saturday.
Welcome to The Weekly Terrible Poetry Contest, episode Eleven.
What is terrible poetry? Please read my helpful article, “How To Write Terrible Poetry.” Lower your standards, trash your meter, near-rhyme your audience to tears, and then read the rules for this week:
- Topic: Diamond in the Rough.
- Length should be greater than 5 words but fewer than 200 words. (5<poem<200)
- Rhyme if you want. Don’t if you don’t want.
- Make it terrible.
Your dear old granny who never said anything bad about anybody (excepting for using passive-aggression, of course; bless her heart) will want to tell you not to worry; not everyone can be a poet and isn’t it good you have other talents to fall back on, Dearie?
- Terrible can still be granny-approved. Keep it PG-rated.
You have till 8:00 a.m. MST next Friday (February 2, 2019) to submit a poem.
Post your poem or a link to it in the comments, or fill out the included form. I read them all and judge as impartially and blindly as I may.
