The NEW Weekly A Mused Poetry Contest

September 11, 2020

Gray clouds have parted, the sun is shining and fortune is smiling on us all because Chelsea is back with a new weekly poetry contest!

That’s right, you heard correctly! I know, it’s a little overwhelming and I’m feeling it, too, so let’s take a moment . . .

<moment being taken>

It’s the weekly ‘A Mused’ Poetry Contest!

From Chelsea herself:
Welcome to the our new poetry contest! Hilarity is our goal; funniness, laughable lines, hilarious rhymes -amusement!

Where once I told everyone to write terrible poetry, I now tell you to write terrible poetry with the intent to make us all laugh:

The Topic is eccentrics.

The Length will be a limerick.

Please go here to play along.

= = = = = = = =

Here’s my attempt at hilarity, funniness, and laughably hilarious amusement.

Henry wanted his in-laws to leave
So he sneezed really loud in his sleeve
The in-laws, abhorred,
to the door they rushed toward.
And a sigh of joy Henry did heave.


(And for what it’s worth – this new WordPress editor whatever thingee? I don’t like it very much at all.)

    This sneezing ward wouldn’t have anything to do with recent worries over germs, now would it? 😀

    And, I’m with you on the editor. I don’t think I can complain enough.

      My worries over germs are decades old, but yeah, the recent ones are no fun and were the inspiration. I figure a fake sneeze is a great way for people to leave you alone now, but I don’t do it because it might also be a great way to get oneself killed.
