bridesmaid reception

A romantic ditty?

A while ago, The Washington Post held a poetry contest.   I have recently found this and thought it was highly amusing.  It's a shame it's taken over a year to get here for other avid bloggers (most likely in America) mentioned them last year.

Anyway, The Washington Post decided to put a twist on the idea of romantic poetry.  They asked readers to submit two-line rhyming poems but there were rules.  The first line had to be the most romantic, and the second line the least romantic.

Want to see what some of the answers were?  They'll make you smile.
