Happy Bad Poetry Day!

Bad Poetry Day

When : Always August 18th

Bad Poetry Day is a day to create some really bad verse. But, why you ask? Perhaps, the answer is simply "because you can". Maybe, it exists to allow us to better appreciate good poetry. Or, perhaps it is to be written to irritate someone......

According to Wellcat.com, the creators of this day, the intention is to gather a group of old high school friends, and write some really bad poetry. Then, send the poetry to your old high school teacher.

  1. My first reaction was, well I'm going to post some good poetry to counteract the bad stuff. But then I thought, making up doggerel can be such fun .... !

  2. I'm not sure that I know how to write "good" poetry. I feel that any effort I make will qualify for "bad poetry day"

    I hope to rectify that writing deficiency sometime, perhaps by taking a creative writing oourse in the future.

  3. There's a day for everything, isn't there?

  4. Fleurfisher - You're right! Writing bad poetry really is fun..especially since that is all I am capable of - lol!

    Molly - I am so deficient in anything related to poetry... reading, writing, understanding. Someday I will do something about that!

    Carolsnotebook - My daughter pointed this 'holiday' out to me. There certainly is a day for everything!
