Let’s face it – not everybody’s the best writer, lyricist or poet. But don’t let that stop you!
Bad Poetry Day encourages you to give it a go anyway by putting pen to paper and writing some terrible verse. If you’re feeling particularly cruel, you could read your bad poetry to friends, family and colleagues; hopefully, they’ll enjoy good poetry more in the future!
History of Bad Poetry Day
The actual year, origin, and the person who first celebrated Bad Poetry Day is still unknown. But the person who thought of celebrating such a day had an aim to send the poetry to the old high school teacher by gathering a group of old high school friends. It is also mentioned that he might also be bad at making good poetry and that would have encouraged such kind of people through Bad Poetry Day celebration. Else, he might have been a kind of person who loves poetry about bad things. The reason for the day extends in number. The best part of rejoicing on this day is by appreciating the ones who write bad poetry. The Bad Poetry Day aims to identify the new poetry writers even if they give bad poetry as the day is notably observed to encourage the bad poets. Poetry, in general, is any literary work, written or spoken produced in the metrical form. To better represent bad poetry, one can indulge in creating an art of words without considering its quality.
