Poetry Contest

Because Oshun was so fond of rhyme, I was inspired to write a little something for him. And if you are so inclined, we invite you to put pen to paper (or fingers to keyboard) and compose a rhyme in honor of the poetical stylist. Send your poetry to BSG and we'll post 'em here! We'll choose the best and the winner will get a Blogging Shear Genius t-shirt!

The rules: profanity! That's about it! You can submit any sort of poem you'd like: limerick; freeform; haiku; sonnet. Have fun!

Ode to an Oshun

The man, a fan
of rhyming words
with his own name.
Emmy nominated
for hair (but not Hair).
Showed us what he can do
with scissors.
Can he cut
or will he
be cut?

Blindfold disaster
comes in last place.
Not deterred,
he tries again
with Lucy
who calls him a blockhead.

So long Oshun
man with the motion and
the potion
That final cut was indeed
your last.
