    My latest apocalimerick as a proper example (note the rhyme and rhythm pattern):

    There is a Survivors Hall of Fame
    Most folks will recognize some names ...
    Noah, Gummer and Crusoe
    make the list me and you know.
    But beating ruin always trumps wide acclaim.

    Our Week 1 winner has been chosen. It was tough ... we had several good ones. Week 2 begins today, so give it another try!

    2017 Week 1 Winner, Feb. 25: submitted by Ang in Indiana ...

    There once was a Mommy of three,

    prepared as a prepper could be.

    But the item most prized

    she soon realized,

    was a year's stockpile of TP

    Aha, I won before and never redeemed my coupon. I'll try again and see what I can come up with. I do need some Berk filters.

    Congrats to grower, our Week 2 winner:

    I went to the store to buy beans.
    Ended up with a whole lot more things:
    Bandaids and bullets,
    MREs and some seeds,
    Being ready costs more than it seems.

    Had some good entries during Week 3. The winner came down to a coin flip ...

    Congrats to Gord Day ...

    I've finally paid off all my debts

    There's finally more dollars for preps

    From bullets to beans

    and all in between,

    I'm safe from the apocalypse.

    They said it would be twenty-twelve...
    That our lives would be put on the shelve...
    They had no way of knowing...
    The chaos would keep growing...
    And into hell's depths we would delve...

    The Week 4 Winner is Pinecone!

    The war drums were beating and fast.

    We finished our preps up at last.

    We sent up a prayer

    for those whom we care,

    then sheltered our kin from the blast.

    There once was a man from Nantucket
    Who kept all his preps in a bucket
    The rain came hard one day
    And his preps floated away
    So he burned down his house and screamed F&@K IT

  35. #35
    Oh good, I get another try. I'll see what my mind can come up with.

    That is funny!

    There once was a guy from missouri...
    On the future of man he would worry...
    He urged all his kin...
    To prep outward and in...
    And be ready to bug-out in a hurry...
