bad poetry

I suppose one of the problems is that the words good and bad are overloaded with aesthetic and ethical senses. Yesterday evening, Maestro Erling Wold, some other folks, and I read some bad poetry on the DJ Bunnywhiskers show on Pirate Cat Radio (MP3 of the broadcast). I chose two poems by two poets laureate: Death of a Toad by Richard Wilbur, USA, and Slough by John Betjeman, CBE, UK. Erling went with unicorn poetry, some Nazi song lyrics, and Bunnywhiskers provided many examples found on the Web by googling.

I'll try to listen to the MP3 recording tomorrow at the office, where we've actually stopped using Windows 95 (unlike me here at home).
