It’s time for Hatemonger’s Quarterly’s fourth annual Horrible College-Student Poetry contest, open to doggerel writers of all ages.
Vapid clichÃ©s; tin-eared rhythms; noxious political bromides â€” wretched college poetry has it all.
. . . weâ€™re asking for disastrously terrible verse in the hectoring, juvenile style of the typical college goon. Misspellings are a plus, as is an irksome all-knowing tone. And grammatical errors? Those earn you double points. Any examples of good taste or style will disqualify your entry.
Entries are due by 5 pm EST on May 5. Contestants need not be college students as long as their poetry reflects immaturity.
Last year’s winning poem was penned by ex-edblogger Michael E. Lopez.
