The Second Annual Hate Week Poetry Slam is finally here, and not a moment too soon!
Submit your haikus, sonnets and poems about our most hated rival!
For inspiration, I’ve included the poem “0-12” from last year’s slam, written by the talented bard Puget Duck.
It started at Oregon, that year of ‘08;
The year that we Duck fans remember as great;
The Mormons, the Sooners, the Cardinal, three more;
Your record was suddenly zero and four;
’Zona, the Beavers got in on the mix;
Oh look at that now, you’re zero and 6;
The Domers were next, but somebody in heaven;
Was looking out for your loss number seven;
Back in the Pac were the Trojans and A-State;
Nine losses now, Ducks revel in hate;
The Bruins in Seattle for the tenth loss of the year;
Wazzu in the Apple Cup: “here, hold my beer”;
One last hope in Berkeley to avoid the sad fate;
Of the worst team in history, of which there’s no debate;
Our ATQ South brethren finished the job;
Hung 48 on the fuskies, Seattlites sob;
A decade has passed, since that year of years;
But hoist your glass now, your wine or your beers;
As we toast the wonderful year of ’08;
The year that we Duck fans remember as great.
