Maybe I will eat with my left hand. This could get messy.

Our task must be to free ourselves...by widening our circle of compassion
to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature and its beauty.

...as long as you clean up with your left hand, eh? I celebrated by giving out left-handed compliments .

Happy Bad Poetry Day
You, too, could rhyme
if you have time
I could say more
but why be a bore?

Whenever you're in Rome
And you need a home
Don't ask a gnome
Because he's stoned.
Also, they're not from there.

So far, you've got my vote for the worst verse.

Sorry. I'm new here. I somehow misunderstood the thread. I'm supposed to make a poem?

This thread wasn't even remotely comprehensible.
But ok, I'll oblige with something at least a little sensible.
Today is my day off so I'll be sweeping something fierce,
Hoping to win a trip or 2, or maybe just a few free beers,
Sorry, I said I wanted to be more active here,
So when I logged on, I clicked new posts, and this thread appeared.

So this is a group, is it private? Instructions would be nice.
Heck even a link to some rules would suffice.

That was really good! I applaud your poetry making!

Rules?
Actually this is a very informal group with only general guidelines:

OLS Groups
A safe-haven for like-minded individuals to get together in fellowship and in peace.

My reply to your first post was not meant to diss you. Indeed, having the "worst verse" on Bad Poetry Day might even be considered an accomplishment. Although I am in agreement with CB with regards to your subsequent poem, I see no need for further instructions. Topics will vary frequently and if you cannot find another thread to fit your mood, feel free to post here. Anything acceptable by the OLS moderators is okay with me, myself and I.
Welcome!
