Of course we made nonsense, just like the children did, but there is much to be gained by allowing ourselves the privilege of play. I rejoiced in revisiting all that juice and all that joy; I shall be sad to wash off the grease.

It's Mad Libs for metrical poetry. It's a game.

Now, if you want a real challenge, "find" poetry in it and post it over on Twisted thread.

I took mine off the "twisted" thread and dropped it in The Deep End. It was treated seriously, workshopped honestly and is now a better poem.
