August 18th has become known as Bad Poetry Day. Apparently, this is a national holiday – at least, in some parts of the world.
Bad Poetry Day
Today’s a day, not like the rest,
For verses need not pass the test.
Unmetered lines, we will accept
From poets skilled or quite inept.
A limerick or random word
On subjects deep or just absurd.
Write what you want; it’s all OK,
Bad Poetry we laud today.

(for August 18th – Bad Poetry Day)
Today, our Meme Express prompt is all about Poetry. Here’s your chance to experiment with poetry. Whether you think your poems are good or not . . . today’s the day! Good poetry – or any poetry – is the order of the day! Who knows? Maybe your poetry will be better than you think.
Who is your favorite poet?
Do you prefer structured poetry or free verse?
Do you write poetry?
Have you ever published a poem?
Why not try your hand at poetry today?
Post a poem in your own blog!
In your post, feel free to use the image or not.
Post your poem, story, song, photo or other entry on your blog. (Be sure to include a link to the Meme Express. Grab our train graphic from the sidebar for your link, if you want.)
Then come back here, and post a comment with a link to your own entry. (Need help making an active link? See Super-Simple Linking. Feel free to bookmark it for future reference!)
Of course, if this prompt seems to stump you, you are free to peruse the archives of the Meme Express and publish a blog post on an earlier prompt.
