I just went to the Mason-Dixon site and they have a benefit contest going on. You need to write poetry for the opportunity to win a raffle ticket that could win you a spectacular afghan. There are some wonderful limericks, haiku, etc. It has a theme (parameters are on the website)Here's what I submitted (they said it doesn't matter how good it is they're going to do a drawing to determine the ticket winner.):
There was a young man named Kazoo
Who's indigo smelled muck like poo
You could see him recoil
As it came to a boil:
He wondered now what do I do?
So obviously doesn't need to be very good, but it will benefit a good cause (and go buy a raffle ticket from the link when you get there.)
