And the most horrible poet is …

The Hatemonger’s Quarterly has announced the winner of the Fourth Annual Horrible College-Student Poetry Competition: It’s a repeat by Michael E. Lopez, attorney and former edublogger.

The third runner-up’s poem includes this immortal stanza:

SHINE THE LIGHT MOTHER!
Expose the Darkne$$
SHINE THE LIGHT MOTHER!
Evaporate their Cokes!
SHINE THE LIGHT MOTHER!
So we can cut off their boy parts.

It’s got a ring to it.

    I wonder if the poets or the HMQ have ever tried to get the poems actually published in a “respectab;e” journal or other college-associated publication. I’d guess that they’d be able to get one published each year.
    That would make the contest even better… not only do the poems mock aspiring college poets, but having them published would mock those who read and seek meaning in such drivel.
