OK, that Uranus rhyme was pretty cool. <IMG SRC="http://www.keenspot.com/KeenBoard/biggrin.gif"><P>But I'm hoping for something a little more... respectful of the art, like this maybe: <A HREF="http://www.pccc.cc.nj.us/poetry/poems.htm?" TARGET=_blank>http://www.pccc.cc.nj.us/poetry/poems.htm?</A> <P>I am holding my breath not at all for this, however.<P>------------------

Bad poetry, huh? Check out these collections of GBPs (Genuinely Bad Poems), some of which are by real and respected poets!<P>My favorite may be Coleridge's "To a Young Ass". Even the GREATS had off days...<P>the collections:
<A HREF="http://www.wmich.edu/english/tchg/lit/pms/bad/" TARGET=_blank>http://www.wmich.edu/english/tchg/lit/pms/bad/</A> <A HREF="http://poetry.miningco.com/arts/poetry/library/weekly/aa042297.htm" TARGET=_blank>http://poetry.miningco.com/arts/poetry/library/weekly/aa042297.htm</A> (particularly check out the piece on distinguishing the good, and the mediocre from the GBPs)<P>and if you're really serious about bad poetry, buy the textbook: <A HREF="http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ISBN%3D0679776222/%0A%09theatlanticmonthA/002-8497597-5243205" TARGET=_blank>http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ISBN%3D0679776222/%0A%09theatlanticmonthA/002-8497597-5243205</A> <P>Methinks our Derek, Bard of Note
Hath verses in his Black Book wrote
which Frank must disassemble quick
lest maidens fall for Derek's trick!<P>Hey! That's pretty bad! High five for me!<P>------------------
