Today is Bad Poetry Day! I don't know how they decide these things, but there you have it. A day dedicated to cruddy poetry... and let's be fair, there's a lot of it out there.*
And when you think about it... songs are just poetry to music. So today I'm sharing some of my favourite finds from the website verybadpoetry.com. Like this one!
Limburger, by prunella jones
Oh my beloved,
oh my stinky, stinky cheese!
Your soft, fatty goodness is the reason I can't be completely vegan.
I never thought I'd love something that stinks like the devil's butt.
Or this one:
cheater cheater, by Amanda Olszowka
Cheater cheater cantelope eater
you eat cantelope in the corner as you cheat on me… with it.
I loved you more than anything in the world in the produce section
your juicy, round self
We'd hang out for days until you'd start to rot
that's when i'd take you back and get you fixed up so you didn't reek
I still loved you when you reeked
I just wanted you to feel confident in yourself
But now you sit there in the corner
Eating that cantelope
I hate you now because you left me
Cantelope is not going take care of you like I did, honey dew
I hate you
