    My latest apocalimerick as a proper example (note the rhyme and rhythm pattern):

    There is a Survivors Hall of Fame
    Most folks will recognize some names ...
    Noah, Gummer and Crusoe
    make the list me and you know.
    But beating disaster trumps acclaim.

    Our Week 1 winner has been chosen. It was tough ... we had several good ones. Week 2 begins today, so give it another try!

    2017 Week 1 Winner, Feb. 25: submitted by Ang in Indiana ...

    There once was a Mommy of three,

    prepared as a prepper could be.

    But the item most prized

    she soon realized,

    was a year's stockpile of TP

    Congrats to grower, our Week 2 winner:

    I went to the store to buy beans.
    Ended up with a whole lot more things:
    Bandaids and bullets,
    MREs and some seeds,
    Being ready costs more than it seems.

    Had some good entries during Week 3. The winner came down to a coin flip ...

    Congrats to Gord Day ...

    I've finally paid off all my debts

    There's finally more dollars for preps

    From bullets to beans

    and all in between,

    I'm safe from the apocalypse.

    The Week 4 Winner is Pinecone!

    The war drums were beating and fast.

    We finished our preps up at last.

    We sent up a prayer

    for those whom we care,

    then sheltered our kin from the blast.

    Thank you to all who participated in this year's Apocalimericks contest! As always--it was fun!

    Congrats to the Week 5 winner--Calculonius! ...

    My pile of prep goods keeps growing.

    The pace of the growth is not slowing.

    Oh why do I do it?

    To help me get through it

    when most of the world ends up glowing!
