Poetry Challenge #105 (Go Vote!!!)
« on: November 03, 2014, 08:24:18 AM »
For this one, lets go for humor.

Write a single, humorous poem of 10 lines or longer in any form. Go silly, go dark, go for something unexpected, you name it.

Humor is as slippery to define as poetry, but we know it when we see it. Make us see it in your work.

Here are a few types of humor to start you thinking:

Send me a PM with "Poetry Challenge #105" in the subject by end of day (GMT) Friday, the 21st.


Could a Mod sticky this please? Thanks :)

I know I goofed and made the deadline too long, but it is approaching and we have a grand total of three entries and there's nothing funny about that.

Think happy thoughts.

Hypocrisy

With intellect, sass, flauntingly, they say,
"what dark minds surround us these days".
Unaware of the pity, hypocrisy, viciously,
they go on being what they talk about.


This is a short poem about double standards and how people are giving live-demo of the same at almost all the times when they talk about it.

Well, Delilah.  I thought I'd like your poetry.

Your message is timely and for everyone. Hypocrisy is a fool's game.

Please... take that "sass" and preach it!

Delilah, I like the write. It is so true...
I was born and raised wearing hand me down shoes and clothes-but I was richer by far than those who thought themselves 'my betters.'  I'd take love over riches and fame any day.
