So, welcome everyone to the Anthology of the SDMB Poetry Sweatshop, Dec. 2009 edition; **please post your completed poems here in this thread. ** Everyone will have one hour from now (1700 EST or 5 PM EST, however you care to think of it.) to create a poem which incorporates the following three words -
- derived, for those interested, from Roget’s Thesaurus by rolling a 12 sided die to get a page number and then a line number.
Other than using those three words, the poem can be any length, form, rhyme, theme you choose. I have a list of people whose poems I am on the lookout for, but anyone is welcome to participate.
In an hour from now, (at 1800 EST or 6 PM), I will add a poll to this thread, and any and all members of the Straight Dope Message Board will have 2 days in which to vote for their favourite poem. Latecomers are welcome to post their poems as well, but once I’ve made the poll, I can’t add anyone to it.
Best wishes and good luck to everyone!
