For poems that are too grubby for other, cleaner, contests.
Do you worry about offending people with your poetry?
Afraid to drop an F bomb or mention an illicit substance?
Then this is the contest for you.
The challenge here is not to see if you can offend or shock the judges (which may be possible but is highly improbable), but to share your poetical genius with us, knowing that we can not only handle it, but appreciate it.
Poetry only. Sorry, no short stories.
All ratings accepted. Please make sure your poem is rated appropriately to the content.
Poetry may be in any form.
Older or previously awarded poems may be entered.
One entry per person.
Please post a link to your entry in the forum. If you need help linking or creating an item, please ask for assistance.
