MOSCOW MITCH POETRY
Their once was a Moscow Mitch Poetry Contest : Suggestions & Digestions for Poets
Now there is little time to do anything but try to stop Mitch McConnell from being re-elected to the Senate. Send any poems, songs, bumper stickers, etc and I'll post on my website.
Can a poem bring down a tyrant? No.
But it can help. All of the damage Trump has done can be laid at the feet of this senator from Kentucky. As horrible a human being as Trump is, he is just a distraction from what McConnell has been doing.
Never tried writing a poem before? Give it a try. Bumper stickers are poems, or can be. Limericks. Songs. Even “serious” poems that no one but other poets read, that’s okay too. And
Don’t be afraid to write something
that a non-academic poet can understand
Don’t be afraid of “the sweetness of meter and rime”
Don’t be afraid to play the clown
You can be projective
You can be introspective
You can’t dance sitting down
If you write poetry but secretly want to be a rock star
write a song, write something that non-poets
might listen to, write something that might be of use
Don’t be afraid of Muse abuse
