Day 18--Bad poetry

Today's challenge discussed how writing badly can be used to get through writers block, and challenged us to write something badly.  I mulled over this for about 2 weeks because I just could get into the idea of consciously writing badly. So I wrote about writing badly...

Writing bad poetry
requires security
or stupidity

Stupidity that doesn't know
just how bad the poem is

Or security to put the worse
of what you have written out there.

I'm pretty sure I'm smart enough
To know when I have written badly.
But I'm not secure enough
To put it out to all the world.
