Bad Poetry Day
Date When Celebrated : This holiday is always held on August 18
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 together. Then, send the poetry to your old high school teacher. Wow! That sounds like a lot of fun......
Today's Poem dedicated to you, the reader:
So, you're a poet
To celebrate this special holiday, it is not enough to just write some bad poetry. Rather you need to read it to someone, or give it to someone to read.
Walt Whitman is probably turning in his grave today.
Happy Bad Poetry Day
