"What, No 'Supper's Ready'?..."  June 7, 2007 - June 17, 2007

Contest Completed


Veteran Art Rocker - [writing deleted]


We all have certain....acquired tastes for things not enjoyed by the majority of our peers. Mine is a slavish devotion to early-70s vintage Genesis tunes. Well, I have other acquired tastes, but counsel has advised me that discusing them in an open forum could prove less than advantageous in future litigation. Your mission...write a poem that has any of the following song titles as the title of the poem...not PART of the title, mind you--the title itself, no more and no less. Your options as follow:

"The Musical Box"
"Harold The Barrel"
"Mad Man Moon"
"Blood On The Rooftops"
"Watcher Of The Skies"
"The Lamb Lies Down On Broadway"

Format, length, content..that's up to you. Title? That's up to me. The group of meth-addled former English teachers who live in an abandoned bus in the back of my property will choose three finalists, with user votes determining their order in the cosmic firmament.


I can call you up and whistle the entire contents of "Wind and Wuthering", if you like.


Parts Unknown. Our high school wrestling teams were unbeaten for decades.
