The 36th Weekly Terrible Poetry Contest

Topic: A tribute to your ‘favorite’ relative.

I have a treasure trove of ‘favorite’ relatives. Today my therapy is to write an ode to

Auntie M

Bless her heart
She’s just old
And loves to scold

Surveying the kingdom
Nothing is pleasant
No good words spoken
Especially about peasants

Leaves are trash
Unmade beds are a mess
Perfection is the name of the game
Otherwise out of the will
You’ll be unnamed

I fear she will live forever
And ever and ever
The one thing she didn’t perfect
Was how to undo the defect
Of living so long

And so goes my song
Oh my darling Auntie M
You are loved
With all your foibles
Oh my darling Auntie M
