Death!

Plop.

The barges down in the river flop.

Flop, plop. . . . -- from Theophile Marzials’s “A Tragedy”:

An address to a prize cheese:

We have seen thee, queen of cheese,

Lying quietly at your ease,

Gently fanned by evening breeze,

Thy fair form no flies dare seize.

All gaily dressed soon you’ll go
To the great Provincial show,
To be admired by many a beau
In the city of Toronto.

Sacred and sweet is the joy that must come/ From the furnace of life when you've poured off the scum -- Edgar Guest

Good bad poetry, like The Room and other good bad films, is enjoyable; often more so than poetry conventionally classified as good. It is certainly often more striking and memorable (see quotations). James Camp and X.J. Kennedy's best of the worst starts where Wyndham Lewis and Charles Lee's The Stuffed Owl leaves off, taking on modern and free verse. If you love literature, this compilation will make you cry with laughter.
