I won the Terrible Poetry Contest!

I’ve posted about Chelsea Owens’ Terrible Poetry Contest before. It’s ridiculously fun, and I try to participate every chance I get.

Well… this week I WON. Finally. After weeks of terrible effort. I’m so honored to be chosen as the terriblest poet among a bunch of astonishingly terrible poets. The prompt was annoying sounds (or something like that).

And now, on to the winning terrible poem, which I’m honestly embarrassed that I wrote (not really):


There once was a hairy old coot
Who loved to squeeze out a poot
It was stinky and smelly
Gurgled like jelly
And popped off a sound like a toot

But he wasn’t close to the worst
My granny caught poots in her purse
She saved up the sound
For when grandkids came β€˜round
Then out of her purse they would burst

Now MY poots are dainty as roses
No trouble for delicate noses
They make a small putter
Wheeze or soft flutter
But they won’t curl your hair or your toeses


I encourage anyone who loves to read or write terrible poetry (or just loves to laugh) to follow her and give her contest a try. πŸ™‚ Plus she has a great blog. Thanks, Chelsea!

    • Thanks, Julie. It’s tricky to make the poem good enough to be poem-ish, but with enough flaws to be terrible. And humor goes a long way. My grandson loves this one and I’m glad you got a laugh. All the entries are pretty hysterical. And you’re right about Molly. She’s a hoot. πŸ™‚

    • Ha ha. The contests are weekly, Bel, and great fun. I doubt your poetry is terrible, so you would have to apply yourself and commit to doing a really terrible job. The entries are all pretty funny if they make sense at all. Thanks for reading and I’m glad you got a laugh πŸ™‚
