The Champion of March Madness Poetry

Ok. So proclaiming myself as the champion of #MMPoetry2013 may be a bit premature. (Especially if I don’t make it to the next round.) Several words, such as delighted, acoustic, and exuberant, appearin the shape of a thought bubble

However… I am championing this amazing contest whether or not I make it to the next round. So, if you haven’t checked it out yet, go already. Read some poems about claques and cairns, fickle anthropomorphization, lugubrious influx, and of course, my favorite, the poem about The Thief who has absconded with something very, very valuable.

Also, in honor of the eventual champion (i.e. moi) I have written a poem.

The Champion

As I’m reading the comments that jeer,
For a moment, I tremble with fear.
Oh, how should I respond?
With the votes, I abscond.
In March Madness, my triumph is clear.

  1. Your Round 1 competitor here seconding your support for March Madness Poetry (and Think Kid, Think) no matter the outcome of our nail biting battle to move to the second round…perhaps The Thief would like to escape on The Train?! Only good can come from inspiring interest in new, creative writing for kids 🙂
