A Good Beer Blog’s Poetry Contest

Woe is the beer mime
he can’t speak the poetry
in praise of fine beer

  1. Hey – I bailed on the 100 and made it 50 or three stanzas of haiku: http://beerblog.genx40.com/archives/2007/march/agoodbeerblog

    And besides – what is illegitimate about that? Is there a poetic reason not to require quality and quantity? If we are going to rumble about poetry do I get to throw down the gaunlet and suggest that you have issues with multiple stanzas? I have the BA in English Lit and I am prepared to use it!

    Besides, the prize is rather sweet and we need entries of all sorts.

  2. Hi Alan,
    Please don’t think I was besmirching your contest. I was just trying to highlight the plight of the poor mime who has no chance to win your poetry contest. 🙂


  3. Friggin’ mimes. Never liked them. Not one bit. Catch me running a beer blog miming contest? Never. Ne-ver. You know how you get to be a mime? Not drinking craft beer.
