May 2011 IBPC Poem Submissions
Interboard Poetry Competition

Please post your submission for the IBPC (Interboard Poetry Community) Competition. The IBPC is an international monthly poetry competition between many poetry boards/forums around the world. Submissions will be accepted until May 31 at 8 p.m. est

By submitting your poem here, you give your consent to follow all IBPC rules.

When entering be sure to check out the current judge Here to get a feel for the type of poems they like. It will help you to create this month's poem. About every 3 months the judges change. They are usually publishers and editors of literature magazines on and off line.

Limit One Poem Per Poet.

IBPC competition regulations allow the submission of only one poem per poet, per monthly competition. This means that if you have entered a poem elsewhere, you may not enter it, or a different poem, here.  It causes confusion, extra work for the judges, and can delay the winning announcement.

Why don't you submit your poem in the Poetic AX for a little tweaking and polishing?

We Never Get Any Rain

urge the grass to grow

wash walls, swipe cobwebs
scour grease build-up
rickety stepladders

forget it, who cares

pace the room, kick the wall
make the bed, take a nap
tired of cooking
lean beef, no fried chicken
eat your vegetables
from paper plates
never give up, just quit

tear-jerking movies or
inane comedies
I need substance
guns, serial killers, white chocolate
no beer, no wine, no bourbon

sunshine and happiness
is not all it's cracked up to be

we never get any rain
