Poetic Medic #2: To The Poem's Rescue!
😷 co-host: Ahavati
This poem is in need of de-liver-y transplant!
We've FINALLY got around to continuing our series of comps meant to help writers exercise their critique muscles. Here is a link to our first Poetic Medic comp back in August of 2017: https://deepundergroundpoetry.com/forum/competitions/read/9824/
We want you to get into the habit of monitoring your word count, which will be very important in the upcoming Official DUP NaPo/GloProWriMo 2019 competition hosted for the 3rd consecutive year by Us. We require all poems written to have no less than "50 unique words". Check out our previous Official DUP NaPo/GloProWriMo competitions for examples of what you would be expected to write and possible rules to follow:
Do you have guts enough to stomach writing no less than 30 poems throughout the month of April? We'll soon find out 88 days from now.
Now .... onto this January's challenge!
As the Poetic Medic arriving on the scene within minutes of a poem's fall from a ten story building, it's your job to put the pieces back together, but ... let these be stitched as you see fit.
Here are the pieces of the poem gathered up from the sidewalk ( and for your information, this "was" a very noteworthy poem by a very popular poet ) :
You may use any of these words more than once to create your very own poem, but ... avoid excessive repetition of these words. We will be counting the amount of words you use.
Participants using MOST OF OR ALL OF THESE WORDS THE LEAST AMOUNT OF TIMES will score the highest.
There are 80 words total. So ..... If your poem contains the 80 words above with the fewest words repeated, the Trophy is likely as good as yours. The 80 words listed can be used in the Title and Poem - or - just the Poem.
You may introduce new words into the Poem that are not on the list, but each of these words will incur a penalty. Please highlight these in bold text so we may immediately find them.
You will not be penalized for introducing new words into the Title.
You have 30 days - Good Luck! 😷
