Worse verse

It’s time for Hatemonger’s Quarterly’s fourth annual Horrible College-Student Poetry contest, open to doggerel writers of all ages.

Vapid clichés; tin-eared rhythms; noxious political bromides — wretched college poetry has it all.

. . . we’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.
