You could be a published poet. You probably don't even know it.
New York City's best rhymers (and other clever social climbers) are encouraged to send their best verse (for better or worse) to @NYCMayorsOffice, via twitter.
The catch, as usual with Twitter, is your poetic creation must be 140 characters or less. (How'd you guess?)
Supposedly, Mayor Bloomberg will pick some of his favorites today, and some winning entries will be published in tomorrow's edition of Metro New York.
So, without further ado, a couple of whacks at Twitterpoetry:
1) Social network poetry
it's fun, it's trendy and it's free
show it to your Facebook friends
with every rhyme you'll make amends
2) Poets typing on their phones
across the wired Twitterverse
high-tech taps like skipping stones
new age blessing and a curse
3) One hundred forty's not much space
to leave a rhyming cybertrace
so write and edit, then submit
once you've started
hard to quit
