Nonsense Poetry Battle!
1st round is acceptance!
The last three rounds will be for nonsense verse.
- Must be in nonsense verse.
- Definition of nonsense verse: humorous or whimsical verse that features absurd characters and actions and often contains evocative but meaningless nonce words. (Taken from merriam-webster.com)
- Poems can be as long as you want, as long as they do not exceed 5k characters.
- Titles are not needed for your poems, but you can have one if you want.
- Nonsense words do not need to be used (example: Bandersnatch, galumphing, quangle, crumpetty)
- Voters will decide the winner.
- They must be your own original poems or I will bite you. 8D
Great examples of nonsense verse can be found by looking up poems by Lewis Carroll's and Edward Lear's nonsense verse poems. A somewhat familiar nonsense verse poem is 'Hey diddle, diddle'.
Nonsense verse does not mean it should be a random jumble of words that make no sense (Though, they can be a random jumble of words that do sound grammatically correct while still making no sense) nor random numbers (91028732).
I hope someone decides to take up my challenge! There will be four rounds, three of which are for the poems. The time limit for each round is 72 hours, and the character max is 5k (though I'd be surprised if someone actually needed more than that!) Let's have some fun!
I accept your challenge. Let's get this battle started.
Awesome! Let's have lots of fun, yeah? (and I just finished my first one, so great timing!)
There was a growling underneath my bed
And the monster came out,
“You are the monster.” I clarified
“Naturally!” I shouted quietly
I wrote this back in September and had fun writing it. I hope it fits the rules.
The peep stole the cheese and put in on the air.
It said it was healthy that way,
but it was actually a chronic chocolate of a time
so the solution was to swim to the case land for vases.
The liquid map was not enough help.
They survived anyways and jumped to grasslands.
The brainac had no idea so they sat to the walker ways.
That was not enough though.
The riots were still going.
They needed more cheese even before the peep stole it.
The peep already cannon balled to the pond, but the cheese was rocked.
The elephant was upset about that.
Moral of the story:
You can't please them all.
Yeah, it's cool; I really liked your poem!
The little bitty kitty cat
- since he’s never seen anything so bright!
Since a pickled rabbit should not be given to a red mango,
the liquid baby walker should also not be put into good use.
There is more to life than hats and cookies.
Take it up and jump up the bottle.
It can stop,
but you can twirl.
Take it with a grain of salt.
Woops! Sorry for the lateness, I thought I posted it last night!
There was a little girl
She claimed to see cockatoos
Every book read like ancient Greek;
Essays were never a challenge
“Tic-Tac-Toe was never a challenge,” she claimed
Stella the stick summed up the samoschos.
She sought the suns of the sanduskies.
Stella shocked up the shoshes.
She upped the upshers.
Stella umpired the unis.
She oranted the rocker.
