The Weekly Terrible Poetry Contest 3/14 – 3/20/2020 #CoronaVerses

Well, I have seen this challenge by Chelsea Owens around for a while, but never had a chance to get involved.

But, recently, this virus has stimulated a few #CoronaVerses, and I thought I could conjour up a terrible limerick for this week’s prompt…

Are you ready for some TERRIBLE POETRY? Here goes…

A man in a fit of elation
Stockpiled like the rest of the nation
Well, bog roll he had
But it left him quite sad
When all the pasta gave him constipation!

Ritu 2020

Awful, isn’t it?

Here are the specifics for this week:

  1. Topic: Stockpiling against a worldwide disaster, in limerick form.
  2. Length: A limerick. They’re five lines: AABBA, in anapestic meter.
  3. Rhyming: Yes. In AABBA anapestic meter format.
  4. Make it terrible! Got it? Make it terrible!! The world’s ending, after all!
  5. Rating: PG-13. This is the perfect time to panic …poetically.

    “Coronaverse” is a GREAT phrase! What a funny poem as well! We’ll see how everyone’s stockpile works out in the end. 🙂

    This is an excellent take on the prompt. Very terrible poetry, friend. 😉

    Terrible poetry personified and scans like a true limerick should. I fear that Bryntin and I may have to vacate the field to save what’s left of our reputations.
