Bad to the Bone

I’m gearing up for the Poetic Asides November PAD (poem-a-day) Chapbook Challenge:

For today’s Wednesday poetry prompt, we had to pen a “bad poem”. Here is my submission, in haiku form, of course.


Bad to the Bone
Wicked, evil, mean
Vengeful, noxious, malicious
Bad– in short, not good.

My hope for the PAD challenge is to pen 30 haiku in 30 days, but of course that could all go awry if Robert asks us to write another sestina, or something of the sort. Still, I wonder if you could write a sestina with every three lines being a haiku. Hmm…
