18 August - Bad Poetry Day
A good poem, if it rhymes, should either use perfect rhymes throughout or use a clear and appealing pattern of near rhymes. Bad poems try for perfect rhymes and fail. Erratic meter. A good poem, if intended to have meter, has a fluent meter that flows gracefully when read aloud.
Odin gave some of the mead of poetry to the Aesir and some to the humans in Midgard which we call poets. While Odin had flown away from Suttung he had pooped some of the mead of poetry out along the way, and whoever wanted it took it. Anyone who has eaten these bird droppings is what we call bad poets.
