FG's Got Talent - The Poetry Round 1

Post by koan »

I'm going to specialize this game into subjects.

FG has a bunch of poets and a bunch of incredibly witty people so here's the game:


Enter a poem in the competition that is at least 5 lines and no more than 12

The poem must use the word "butter" and be funny

A poll will be added in one week to vote for the funniest poem

You can only enter one poem so make sure it is the one




Good Luck!

Anyone who feels like playing the Simon Cowell of poetry can comment in the commentary thread.

This thread is for contestants only.

I likes to rub girlies with butter;

but please no one tell my mutter.

Cuz she'll let out a shout!

Make me pull it out,

and cut off my putter and nutters!!

There once was a man from nantucket

He was a dairy farmer

who carried his butter in a bucket

Yes, he was a charmer:-4

One day he fell down the hill

tripped over a rock

and the butter did spill

lucky for him he caught it in his sock.

Lesson to be learned here and now

when handling butter

Should have listened to Betsy the cow

Become a shoe salesman and step away from the Utter.:D

Pinky loves the whips of leather

She even loves the bloody weather.

Pinky is gorgeous, Pinky is great,

Pinky's a dolly, Pinky's a mate.

Pinky does curse and Pinky does rave

when butter's applied, Pinky's depraved.

I should never have whipped this off. I hope I'm excused for a momentary aberration.

For a woman who says she's refined

Lady Grace ought to make up her mind

If she's put on her back

She just yawns and goes slack

But she screams if you butt'er behind.

crunch time

when hunger hits,

below the ample belt,

don’t ration out peanut butter!

bread loaf,

smoothed gently over every slice

with sweet ambrosia,

sprinkled with

jelly




This is in the form of a BUTTERfly Cinquain

When she gazed into his eyes and saw him sweetly smile, her heart would really flutter. But, alas, all she could think of was that guy from the butter.

There we go!!

Ten entries and only ten poll options so Round One is closed.

I'll post a poll and let the voting begin. :)

As with every FG game here, everyone who plays is a winner in my books. :yh_clap

(I'm not setting any rules this time round about whether or not contestants can vote. It's an anonymous poll.)
