FlogYoBlog Friday - The International Bad Poetry Day Edition

There was a girl hosting The Flog,
With a new edition each time on her blog,
But it had been a tough week,
And she felt pretty bleak,
So she just found an interesting day to name it after and figured that would do.

Howdy Floggers! It's International Bad Poetry Day, could you tell?

Yes, there is such a day (I know, I was surprised too). Well actually it was the 18th but for half the world it still will be when this goes live, so that's good enough for me!

Feel like winning something? Write me a bad poem below and the best of the worst will win... I dunno yet, but I'll get ya something pretty from Typo

Let's Flog, baby.

The Rules
(As stolen from Lori, thus making Baby Jesus cry... sorry)
  1. Follow Where's My Glow? 
  2. Bow down at the alter of Mummy Time; Blog-goddess, all round groovy gal and creator of FYBF
  3. Grab the FYBF button and post it on your sidebar or in the post you're linking up
  4. Link in your favourite/best post from the week (don't just put your homepage URL)
  5. Follow at least 1 linkyer/blogger (Be nice and spread the comment love)
  6. The list will be open for linkyers on Fridays (and for the foreigners Friday as well)
  7. A new and fresh linky list will open every Friday. And you will have to link up AGAIN. The previous link list does not carry over to the following week
  8. Because I live in Dullsville Perth the list will open around 7am AWST - I'm not getting up at 5am and the last time I scheduled a post it didn't work.


get the InLinkz code

P.S. Many thanks to everyone who sent me lovely tweets, comments and emails over the past weeks sending prayers, thoughts and well wishes to my family. It is so very much appreciated. I actually find it really hard to reply to them and I'm not entirely sure why xxx

    In an effort to boost my blog views
    And draw more followers than just 62
    I've wished for a teeny Weeny
    That cannot be seeny
    And Glowless I've flogged it with you!

  2. you might like this one I wrote almost exactly a year ago for another fybf
    it's really bad poetry

  3. There's a day for everything, isn't there? But I kinda like bad poetry...

  4. This is my poem for you,
    It's really quite good for a chew,
    So gimme the prize
    Of proportionous size
    Because I freaking LOVE Typo

  5. (I find it really really hard to reply to all my comments and tweets and emails at the moment too...  Thankyou doesn't convey what I want to say, and after saying it for a bit, the word is a bit overused for me...  )

    And here is the worst I can do on short notice :P

    I like to write a bit of prose
    about life and love and beauty of a rose
    but the truth is right now I suck
    and my kid is always running amok
    time is certainly not on my side
    And poetry rules I just don't abide
    So I'll fumble my way through writing
    something bad and truly frightening
    So celebrate, hip hip horray
    It's international bad poetry day...

  6. A blogger named Maid In Australia
    Found the cure for whatever ails ya
    Now don't be a snob, but
    It involves a Glow Job
    And maybe a trip to Tasmania!

  7. On Fridays it's time for FlogYoBlog
    This week I won't be able to go the whole hog
    I'm afraid I'm feeling weak
    Out of time and a little bleak
    But a pressie would cheer up this old dog! :)

    Awful, just awful......I can't believe I'm about to put this out there for all to see.

  8. There is a chick called Trae,
    Who smiles the day away
    She loves to cook
    I bet she has a mean right hook
    And she and Tricky play all day, Hoorah!

  9. I might be the Queen of Bad Poetry,
    But its all in the way you put your symmetry
    of words and timing and stuff
    And there you have it, puff!

  10. I know how you feel about the replying, I'm still working out how I'm supposed to feel about my mum passing away in June. But please know I'm thinking of you too. xx

  11. I have a secret confession
    Which I'll divulge in this FYBF session
    I want the award
    For a poem that is flawed
    So I can feed my Typo obsession

  12. I was a little late
    On flog yo blog Friday....

    I once heard that a poem
    Does not always have to rhyme
    However, when I write poems
    They rhyme most of the time.

  13. There is nothing quite like a Flog,
    except for a good Glow Job!
    So I've added a post,
    and I don't want to boast,
    but it tells why you can't help but love Glowless!

  14. Hey there Glowless, this one came from the top of my head...enjoy!

    There was once an old lady named Madge,
    Who had an incredibly sore Vag.
    Not from the babies she'd birthed
    Nor the guy with the big girth.
    No, it was the pin from her badge.

    She sat on it quite late,
    After finishing her nice date
    Surprising herself with the prick,
    In pain she screamed "Shit a brick!"
    "Now I won't be able to mate"

    So ladies, do take heed,
    Listen to my good deed
    and don't end up like Madge.
    Close the clasp on your badge
    It's not for your Vag, this I'm sure we're all agreed!

    I can't stop laughing! I have surprised myself at this little imaginative poem of mine!

    Have a fab day!


  15. Glowless, I love your blog
    You manage to make me laugh and cry
    You're insightful and funny
    And a gorgeous mummy
    And your oreo macaron's made me high

    I'm new to writing on the net
    You're an inspiration to me, most def
    I use blogspot as my host,
    And these links to the weeks best posts
    Are my highlight of FYOBF!!

  16. I love Japanese Haiku poetry
    Eating too many strawberries give me hives
    That is all good bye

  17. So here comes Mama Grace
    Who's always in your face
    Who has twins but tries to stay sane
    But instead has a constant fog in her brain...
    How was that ?  Yes ?  Yes ?
    Bad poetry, yes ?

  18. I think that if we make a competition for bad poetry we will see that it has more fans than the good poetry... :)

  19. Im Mums the Word
    and I have heard
    that glowless's quite a girl
    shes cool, shes kinds
    she blogs as she finds
    so Im having a flogyoblog whirl

    heehee! happy friday peoples x

  20. My blog is Swet soft smudge
    And I'm not a stick in the mud
    That doesn't quite rhyme
    So I'll give you the time
    Oh crap I thought it was six-oh-one.

  21. My bad poem:

    I am an older mom
    I have lots of fun
    wiping a bum
    playing in the sun
    with my little one

  22. What you mean I coulda just shared my crap poem in the comments? I didn't have to torture my blog readers with it??? bugger

  23. Exactly, Kristie. I find I write reply emails that are really long and then just delete it and don't send anything.

    For TYPO goods I'd do most anything,
    I might even get up and sing,
    Just for the divine Miss Glow,
    I will proudly show,
    My out-of-tune melody,
    Which some may regard a felony.

    - I am REALLY bad a poetry. I always hated having to do it in English.

  25. Bobbi Renee Hass-BurlesonAugust 19, 2011 at 11:09 PM
