Top "Bad" Poems in Six Words

Good poetry can be fulfilling, but bad poetry can be utterly entertaining! For SixContest #58, in honor of National Bad Poetry Day, we asked for your best of the worst in just Six Words. There were cleverly terrible spins on old classics (“A talking raven? Seriously? Well, nevermore.” —MelB) and a bounty of beautifully awkward verses (“Poetry not my thing. Beer, maybe.” —jermball30), reminding us all why bad poetry is such fun (“Will miss daily Bad Poetry laughs.” —Kharis). With over 500 entries on our site and more submissions via social media, this contest is proof that being bad can be oh-so-good! —Abbie Martin Greenbaum
