The Weekly Terrible Poetry Contest

Welcome to the Weekly Terrible Poetry Contest #41!!

For some guidance, click a basic description here. Entrants assume all risks associated with poeming, reading, and laughing painfully.

Here are the specifics for this week:

  1. Topic, topic; who’s got a topic? Ooh! I do; I do!
    It’s Back to School!
    Thank you, Timmy. Now, next time let’s remember to raise our hands.
  2. No teacher actually reads those 500-word essays, so keep the Length above 4 words and below 200. For those in the advanced math group, that’s 4<p<200, where p is poem and 4 is 4 and 200 is 200.
  3. Teacher, should we Rhyme? If you wish, this occasion.
  4. Just Make it terrible! The superintendent of all the area schools must feel compelled to visit and deliver a lecture on “Why One Never Poems Without Reason,” followed by a light refreshment of watered-down punch.
  5. Naturally, this assignment must be rated appropriate for general audiences.

You have till 8:00 a.m. MST next Friday (September 6) to submit a poem.

Use the form below to remain anonymous for a week.

For a more social experience and immediate fame, include your poem or a link to it in the comments.

Share with your friends (and enemies).

Have fun!

  1. OK, Ms. Owens, I will take my turn at the blackboard and.. what do you mean they don’t have blackboards and chalk any more? Fine! I’ll write it out on this, hmph, whiteboard:

    Teacher, teacher,
    Be aware
    I just dropped my pencil
    Under there
    Ha!
    I made the teacher
    Say “Underwear”!
    Principle, Principle
    Don’t be blue
    I know I took advantage
    Of the teacher who’s new
    Darn!
    He sent my butt home
    For my mother to chew
    Mother, Mother
    Don’t be mad
    Only nine months to summer
    Then we’ll be glad
    Huh!
    What’s she mean
    It won’t be the worst nine months
    She ever had….
