Gold Digger (Weekly terrible poetry contest)…

Theme: the wild west

Gold Digger

gold digger jigger fa shizle yo

“This old wildcat’s as bad as Sal.

Now keep your shirt on! I mean… don’t get yourself in a tizzle.”

Spoken spitting like a true wild west un

That’s Gabby Hayes our high falooting pal

His only weapon the bottle

His breath knocked me dead full throttle

Hunting the yellow the specks worth a hundred

“All right all right don’t rush me, I’m-a-thinkin’ … and my head hurts”

Said Sam short on words

Wiggle my wiggle this poem’s a turd

      1. This one was a close contest for sure. I definitely look more at messing up a poem’s meter or obviously making fun of serious poetic clichés than I do at gross subjects.
        I thought yours was a good, terrible example. 🙂 -probably about 3rd place, if that helps.
