    In the system of Sol
    Come one come all
    We have to buy
    A ping pong ball
    Or is it tennis of the table?
    To disinguish never am I able

    Anyway, down the way
    Which is a street
    We walk
    Meet a bum
    We talk
    He does hum
    We walk, away
    He hums anyway
    Alone

    I groan
    You have left me
    On my own
    I must also buy a tepee

    But only you know
    The location of the Mohawk mall
    So I stall
    Like an old bus
    No gas
    No you

    Where to?

    To buy a ping pong ball.
    Alone.

    I groan.

    Don’t palaver that you love me
    Rather blather that you don’t
    Don’t dare swear by stars above me
    That you will and that you won’t!

    Be sincere in adulation
    and I’ll be pellucid in mine.
    Calibrate your intonation
    So it’s not a morbid crime.

    If these walls could talk,
    what would they say?
    They seen you and I
    become very randy....
    Please don't tell walls.
    For our spouses will quit.

    Just a reminder that the purpose of this thread is to create deliberately bad poetry as a writing exercise - not to post poetry for critique

    If you want to do the latter you need to use the appropriate section of the workshop

    (this relates to posts that have been deleted not to the post it now suceedes)

    The soft moose in the room
    Speaks
    His words unwording words
    That should have worded
    In a different place.
    He is moderate
    He is big
    We are warned

    I have of late, lost my desire
    and the ability to concentrate.
    I start a poem in earnest, but alas
    my attention span is not wh

    Climb the Pebbled Grasslands
    Climb the pebbled grasslands
    See the nearest eye
    I have what the girls want
    I've got this fancy scythe

    Climb the pebbled grasslands,
    come, and see for yourself
    the fields are so rough and rugged,
    and so smooth and soft

    Climb the pebbled grasslands
    My hands are shaking
    I am overwhelmed
    They should call them the bad-ass-lands

    Come and see the the badasslands
    They're totes awesome, dude
    They're really rad shake-your-hands lands
    You better come in the nude

    The masses desire
    what I cannot give,
    Poets for hire
    For acclaim they live.

    But alas poor poet,
    For the masses are fickle,
    You and I both know it
    And here we are in a pickle.
