Mosquitoes Suck

Bad Poetry Day is Monday, August 18th. 
In honor of this illustrious holiday here is my very own "bad" poem:
Roses are red,
Violets are blue,
Mosquitoes suck,
Because they do.

It's all a matter of perspective, isn't it?

They just do, indeed! I'm liking the idea that BPDay coincides with my brother's birthday

Linda B said...

I think you may win the best 'bad' poetry, Bridget. I know that you worked so hard at this, right? Wish we were really back to school. The older students would love it!

Bridget Magee said...

Thanks, Heidi! Happy birthday to your brother, may he enjoy many "bad" poems on his special day. = )

Bridget Magee said...

Thanks, Linda! It is quite an honor! My so called "bad" poems get the biggest reaction around my house. I guess there is no accounting for taste. = )

Tabatha said...

Ha! My son's favorite is "Roses are Red/Violets are Violet/That's why they're called Violet." Thanks for giving us a new holiday to "celebrate" :-)

Bridget Magee said...

Love it, Tabatha! Your son is a smart boy, violets are violet, not blue! There are some kooky "holidays" out there - glad you enjoyed this one. = )

I hadn't heard about Monday's celebration. May I share your poem on my library blog on Monday? There's no nice way to put that, is there? It's bad poetry day, so let me share yours. Cringe. Actually, I find your poem quite clever--so bad, it's good!

Bridget Magee said...

Absolutely, Diane! I embrace my bad poem and am happy to share the "suck" with your readers. I like to appreciate the good, the bad, and the ugly in the poetry world - it is all relative. = )

Mary Lee said...

HA! Not bad -- TRUE!!

Katie TheLogonauts said...

Too, too funny! I also love that there is an official bad poetry day!

Karen Edmisten said...

We both had simple poems this week, Bridget, that get right to the point. :)

Michelle Heidenrich Barnes said...

Well Bridget, this just may be the best worst poem I ever read! Good to know about this illustrious holiday.

Renee LaTulippe said...

Tee hee! That pretty much sums it up (as I sit here scratching my bitten ankles...). Curses to those sucky mosquitoes!

Violet N. said...

Ha ha! And since you've given us the heads-up we still have a few days to dig up bad poems of our own and join the party.

Bridget Magee said...

Thanks, Mary Lee! I appreciate the vote of confidence. = )

Bridget Magee said...

Thanks, Katie! It seems their is an official holiday for everything - even bad poetry. = )

Bridget Magee said...

Indeed, Karen! Great minds think alike! = )

Bridget Magee said...

Thanks, Michelle! "Best worst poem" is a high honor! = )

Bridget Magee said...

Oh no, Renee! Mosquito bites bite! (hee-hee). = )

Bridget Magee said...

Yay, Violet! Yes, please join the party and post your best bad poem - it'll be a revolution. = )
