A Contest

This kerfluffle involving a scrotum
And some nutty librarians
-- note 'em:
You think speech is free?
That's a phallusy.
Bag the words that you want, they won't tote 'em.

I'm still convinced that librarians are, by and large, our friends. In order to make it possible for them to stock that Newberry Award winning book, we need to accustom people to the word "scrotum." To which end, I'm announcing a contest for most creative use of the word "scrotum" in a poem or limerick.

Go nuts in the comments. The deadline is midnight tomorrow.

I have X-posted it to my blog, whereby many others can adore your sonnet (given proper authorial credit, of course).

Oooh, you should definitely try the sestina! Now I'm encouraged to go out and write poetry about scrotum too... (I haven't written poetry since I graduated from college two years ago, with a degree in Creative Writing that I obtained by "specializing" in poetry. None of my poems have ever had positive reactions about publication though, so I think that's why I largely stopped writing them.)

Do it! It's fun!

(And I stopped for a great many years, and then just picked it up again one day out of nowhere. I'm still not sure why.)

Where's that sestina you promised us eight hours ago?
