Poetry Contest

Write a boring, trite, bland, uninspired, cliched, or generally bad bit of prose
Hereís a weird one: who can write the most inane and uninteresting poem? If you good- try not being good. If you boring- keep doing you, babe. I want the most uninspired Poetry you can muster. Sometimes meditating on the bad paradoxically helps the good

Why?

Rhetorical deep
in
thoughts

Why?

In an inane insensical insensitive inning waves pushing me towards an answer i know will NOT come - be answered. . .

WHY?

the cusp of a competition and or underlying, lying, dung that the beetles ignored for more
choice fodder,

Still,
the Q remains

Why?

Choice Fodder is actually what I named my first born

Boring

A sunny day at the beach it was supposed to be
But it rained all over her feet

And it was windy.

Fly

Our small bowl must
have looked like huge to a fly.
and if it's full of water then
it must have looked like
a pond to her.
small grains must have
looked like small mountains for her,
slice of bread must have
looked like comfortable bed to her.
our small rooms must have
looked like a big palace to her.
a tomato †must have
looked like a big bomb to her ha ha ha.
and our faces must have
looked like horrible demons to her.
and yet how much
she disturbs us †aaah irritate always
by roaming around us.
she is so small,
yet it does not come in our hands.

boar ring

 
yawning is almost growling
like a lion in the savannah
a monkey peels a banana
a ballet turns in an eternal wheel
chimes play the quarter hours
comb the hair that falls out
read machine instructions
save photos in albums
photograph the lion in action
give instructions to the monkey
endless hours and hours
no curls in the hair on the floor
snoring instead of yawning
like an ancient lion ballet
to the sound of chimes
that echo in banana peels
automatic photo machines
quarter-hour carousels
tick tock tick tock tick tock
tick tock tick tock
tick tock
paint the claws in red and blue
paint the skin in yellow and blue
dye your hair purple and blue
sink the claws into the blue skin
stick the voodoo photos
attack the hours of chimes
stacking the bones in the closet...

The Sin I'm In

 
The words Iím about to spill on this page
Should shine and show some sure sage
Shortly there after you shall be amazed
At the time wasted, hasted and razed

But itís pointless, worthless, and absurd
To read the feed hanging on to every word
Itís preposterous if you want my two cents
Yet here I am lacking the common sense

Sure itís cheesy and maybe a little sleazy
But Iím certainly trying and itís not easy
The lexicon is just a boring phenomenon
As the vernacular goes on and on and on

Hey I like to dabble in this psychobabble
And yet Iím really bad at playing scrabble
I just put together some random phrases
Trying to sound articulate to get praises

I mean if really you have gotten this far
Arenít you finding this a little too bizarre
Youíve squandered a minute of your day
Thrown away just to watch me word play

But when I saw this thread I felt the call
I decided to say a lot and nothing at all
The sin Iím in is a synonym for a dull chorus
Iím too dumb so I thumb through my thesaurus

THE SOULS OF MEAT & THE ETERNAL ANGUISH OF WORMS

the souls
of sows
and beefy cows
fill heaven's
grassy plains
and souls of
chickens
roam
to scratch
the earth
of god's
domain

so souls of
worms
can find no peace,
the souls
of bugs as well --
what's heaven
for those chickens
then,
for worms
and bugs,
is hell

and worms
and bugs,
they know
the wrath
of chicken's
mighty beak
and think
their sins
have
caused
their woe
and after
mercy
seek

so souls of
worms
and bugs,
they tithe
and make
good
haste
to pray
but chickens'
souls are
hungry
and
don't
hear a word
they say

Boring

An hour without the internet
Waiting at the DMV
The color beige
Work meetings
Checkout lines
Being put on hold
