What to Submit?
1 original, NEW poem on the theme of ... MAKE ME LAUGH! An easy request - or is it? Different people laugh at different things. The only clue I'll offer to my sense of humour is the fact that I love comic verse by Roger McGough, Ogden Nash and Spike Milligan.
Any form is acceptable, but no more than 16 lines. The poem that makes me laugh the most is the winner. As simple as that!
First Prize, Top Glory
Second Prize, Glory
Third Prize, Glory
Fourth - Tenth, Highly Commendable
