UPDATE: Local Poet Rich Levy Will Provide First Line For Tomorrow's Bad Poetry Round Robin

Thursday is Bad Poetry Day, and Art Attack is calling on our readers to don their berets and turtlenecks and help us write Houston's worst poem.

At 9:30 tomorrow morning, we'll post a single line of bad poetry. Trust us, it will be horrible. The first to comment on the post will write the next line. And then the next commenter will write the third line. And so on, and so on.

This is the first time we've done this, so the round robin will go on until we at Art Attack see fit. On Thursday, we'll post the final product. So let's make it super horrible, Houston.

Show us what you got.

UPDATE: We just got off the phone with local poet/Inprint Executive Director Richard Levy, who, to our relief, wasn't insulted when we asked if he would provide the first line of poetry for our first-ever bad poetry round robin. Instead, he was delighted and has already given us the first line. It's pretty bad.
