The best of your 'Worst Poetry'

Advertisement

I really thought I'd get more submissions than I did for bad poetry. Thought the commenters would be all over this one.

Hands down, this was my favorite of the entries I got. If you're a regular on the comment boards, the author will look familiar.

"I wake up all too often
and have to leave the bed.
I'd much prefer to lie there
and rest my weary head.

I come to this recliner
not wanting to partake
of any more bombardments
the Internet can make.

Bad feet will not consider
a trip to the TV,
to change another movie
and I really need to pee.

So once again you'll find me
sitting where you read me last,
at least I have not sat so long
my skin is sticking fast.

That WOULD be just the ending,
for you to read about my fate,
“What happened to Old Multi…
haven't heard from her of late?”

They found her where she always was,
her mouse in hand, eyes crusted.
The URL read by the cop
“One millionth comment posted”

Oh, man. Good stuff.

I also really like this one:
"Sarah Palin Sarah Palin
Oh and Michael Vick
Michael Jackson dies
Bob Novak gets the stick

Wild dogs in Georgia
Pregnant moms and SUVs
Al Gore's carbon footprint
Don't cut down the trees

Anger over taxes
Anger over wealth
Anger over anything
That has to do with health

Another day on ljworld
Fishing for debris
Can't get this kind of comedy
Anywhere on TV

-nothing to say but here-

here take this beyond the blank page take this into your heart sit in the focused chair of theatre awaiting the play eat corn and drink sugar

there is nothing in the vision of others necessarily taking you higher than the stalks you wade where there is nothing grand beyond your taking on your own time

so is this read the gift that you seek your own destination written in the ever doubtful artistic quest without the worked vision bought with corporate funs housed by a master in your own space

here there is nothing in the vision so is this read the gift awaiting the play beyond your taking housed by a master sit in the focused chair of theatre where there is nothing grand without the worked vision bought with corporate funs

take this of others that you seek take this into your heart higher than the stalks you wade in the ever doubtful artistic quest beyond the blank page necessarily taking you your own destination written

eat corn and drink sugar on your own time in your own space
