Hail, Poetry!

The Crack Young Staff of the Hatemonger's Quarterly announce their 4th Annual Horrible College Student Poetry Contest today. To prime the pump on the true, the blushful Hippocrene, as it were, "Chip" and the gang have already contributed a little pensee of their own:

All the World Is Rape by the Crack Young Staff

Afghanistan, Iraq, Iraq, Afghanistan
All the world is rape.

Lacrosse, Limbaugh, Limbaugh, lacrosse
All the world is rape.

There are no spaces, no places, no safe spaces
For the faces of Womyn.

There is no fairness, no careness, no real fairness
For the objects of oppression.

Sure, you can work your job for the Hitler business mob
You can watch children starve thanks to globalizationís hardships
But you canít deny that
All the world is rape.

Economics, biology, biology, economics
All the world is rape.

If that doesn't resonate with your inner Muse, she must indeed be oppressed by the Dead White European Male Hegemony under which we are all suffering untold horrors on a daily basis. Either that or she's stoned out of her mind.

G'wan over for details. Entries are due by 5:00 EST on May 5, so get, er, cracking.

Agreed. That is truly terrible poetry--for more reasons than one.

I submitted a plethora of truly terrible dog poetry last year. I didn't even get an honorable mention...
I say the contest is rigged.
