I'm excited to announce, in honor of today being Bad Poetry Day, TC's First Annual Bad Poetry Awards. Here's what you have to do to enter and possibly win.
- Write a bad poem, using either your blog name or user name as part of the poem. (There are no specific guidelines for this. We all know a bad poem when we see one.) Here's an example, which I created before my first cup of coffee this morning - a time when the worst poetry is written, in my opinion..
Lost and Found
If you find a pair
of boy's underwear,
contact Fish In My Hair.
Her sons' tushies are bare.
- Put the poem on your blog, and leave me a comment here letting me know where to find your entry.
- I will announce two winners - Young Adult (under 18), and Adult - on Monday, Aug. 20.
- Winners will be given an award button to post on their blog.
That's it! Have fun, and remember, you're not truly a bad poet until it can be said of you the same that J.K. Stephens said of William Wordsworth: "An old half-witted sheep."
