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 ‘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. 🙂 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. 🙂

    • 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 🙂
