Bad Poetry Day

When : Always August 18th

Bad Poetry Day is a day to create some really bad verse. But, why you ask? Perhaps, the answer is simply "because you can". Maybe, it exists to allow us to better appreciate good poetry. Or, perhaps it is to be written to irritate someone......

According to, the creators of this day, the intention is to gather a group of old high school friends, and write some really bad poetry. Then, send the poetry to your old high school teacher. Wow!, That sounds like a lot of fun......

Today's Poem dedicated to you, the reader:

So, you're a poet
But you don't know it.
Try writing some verse
But, don't be terse.
After it's writ,
It will read like..........

Walt Whitman is probably turning in his grave.
Happy Bad Poetry Day

Origin of Bad Poetry Day:
This special day was actually created by the good folks at They have created a number of special days and have actually copyrighted them so they can profit by it. Dontcha just love America!?
