Very Bad Poetry : )

From a book entitled Very Bad Poetry. Here for you,

The Worst Tribute to a Great Poet

Many bad poets have paid tribute to the greats of their profession, usually in appropriately atrocious verse. Shelley is the victim in the lines below.

from English Poets
James McIntyre


We have scarely time to tell thee
Of the strange and gifted Shelley,
Kind hearted man, but ill-fated,
So youthful drowned and cremated.

I tried to come up with my own bad poem, in honour of this 'swicked' post. However, upon consulting an online rhyming dictionary, I stumbled upon perhaps the greatest of all ironies, which I have 'copy and pasted' here for your contemplation:

Sorry, no perfect rhymes were found.

Seriously, who's idea was it to call it poetry?
