A Really Awful Poem


Doggerel is delicious
I wrote that once before
Kids love the rhyme and rhythm
that real poets deplore.
Umpty umpty diddle me ree
like nursery rhymes
that make you see
the silly side of life.
For a really awful poem
I think that should suffice.

Octpowrimo day 18 asks for some BAD poetry.

    Awful it may be,
    but the rhyme,
    it tickles me!

    Let me be a kid FOREVER then! This was fun! I smiled as I read it the first time…read it a second time…smiled again. I’m angling for a third go!

    I enjoyed this very much.


  6. I agree you failed the prompt..this is a nice prompt.


  7. Shah Wharton says:

    You can’t even write it bad when the prompt requires it! I certainly could, though fighting the compulsion to edit is rotten isn’t it? 🙂


  8. neil reid says:

    oh Viv I think you failed the prompt. this poem is hardly bad at all. in fact it has a definite charm!

    Doggerel Bank comes to mind. Am I living in my own foolish world? 🙂
    Hope you’re picking up a bit of steam these days?
