Welcome to the 2nd Annual Shitty Poetry Month!
While it's National Poetry Month elsewhere in the world, here at ChiZine, we'd like to acknowledge all the terrible poems that spam the interwebs, grace greeting cards, and make you want to shoot yourself at open mic nights, especially after they run out of gin.
That's why we started SPoM! To revel in the glory of the (badly) written word, to make T.S. Eliot, Shakespeare and Anne Sexton turn in their graves.
Starting April 1st, we will post a brand new shitty poem each weekday on ChiZine.com. At the end of each week, you'll have the weekend to vote for your favourite bad poem. The winner of that week will be announced on the Monday.
At the end of the month, the four finalists will be pitted against each other in a pitched battle to the death, with a winner voted in by you, Gentle Readers.
Happy reading, and may the good shit be with you!
