Bad poetry day contest

Oz and Ku are hosting the bad poetry contest, and as I enjoy writing poetry (seems to be a malamute trait) I thought I’d give it a go.

Bad Poetry Day

The main problem is I’m not sure what makes a bad poem: is it the subject? Is it the style? is it the length? Poetry is so subjective it’s hard to know. Now I’m not saying my poetry is necessarily good but its hard to write something that is deliberately bad, if you get what I mean.

So after lots of thinking, I decided to write my poem in the style of, and as a tribute to, Baldrick’s war poem entitled The German Guns (It’s from Blackadder Goes Forth in case you haven’t heard it before). As I was writing my poem I was thinking about food, so I have called it ‘Dinner’

Dinner by Misaki

Nom nom nom nom
Nom nom nom
Nom nom nom nom
Nom nom nom.

What do you think? Is it bad enough??

Have you entered yet? Check out Oz and Ku‘s bloggies for more details.

Also, don’t forget to vote in Sammy’s School Daze contest

On top of that I have a favour to ask. For those of you on facebook would you mind taking a few minutes to vote for me in the BuyaGift contest? The winner becomes the model for their new campaign and also £1500 will be donated to Battersea Dogs Home in the winner’s name. To vote, click you’ll then need to ‘like’ buyagift, find my photo (which should be on page 3 – thank you cupcake for updating me) and click ‘vote’. Hope that all makes sense – thank you!

  31. BOL I think that was the “worst” poem I’ve seen today. Great thinking Misaki! Going to vote for you now – good luck!

  32. spittythekitty says:

    It has a rhyme scheme! It’s alliterative! It’s rhythmical! It SPEAKS to me.

    I don’t think it’s nearly bad enough. I mean, think of Gertrude Stein.

  33. Kyla says:

    You’re disqualified from the BAD poetry contest. It’s about food and the subject is great. I really like it and it’s good poetry.
