The Bad Poem - Poem by Scotty Dogg

We'll lash you up foul poem,
And bind you in three knots.
We'll twist you till your stars
Won't shine, and
Your roses start to rot.

We'll burrow out a tiny hole
And plant you in the clay.
We'll put a muzzle on
Your moans so
Your whimpers fade away.

    Think about making I'll and we'll and pronoun agreement.
    Does muzzling moans produce whispers, or would whimpers
    be a better fit.

    Don't strangle and stifle it to death! Let it breathe, so that it might please someone! Very interesting!

    I have never sung the dirge of any poem! However bad it is, I see that it survives! !

    SD, this is very funny and light. Reminds of the late, great Herbert Nehrlich's work (and trust me, that is a compliment; he was a master rhymer!) . (Report)Reply

    which one of mine WAS it? now that i have read it again, i notice you haven't done all that YET. or have you by now? or are you just a lot of hot air? you are really a pussy cat, not a dogg, right? and you wouldn't REALLY harm a poor little poem. to quote Sandy Player, below, Poor thing; it ain't it's fault.

    All of the sudden the poems in my graveyard started screaming at me. I better add another thick layer of cement over their gaping mouths. (Report)Reply

    We can feel your abuse of the bad poem as we read. Poor thing; it ain't it's fault. Ahhhhhh! I admit! The blame goes to me! ! ! Woe and more woe... (Report)Reply
