Challenge?

Are enough people interested in a Bananagram Challenge?

If at first you don't succeed....skydiving is not for you ....
If you don't pay your exorcist .... do you get repossessed?
I shall always decide not to decide, unless of course I decide to change my mind.

Mind you Tzara would be better at this than me, seeing as he actually knows what iambic pentameter should be! Perhaps I should drum up custom somehow else.

Iambic 5meters also good, but I cannot make anagramatic nonsense enough of them

Bananagram, like que sera, sera,
I donít condone the views of Jean Marat,
Assassins donít you cum into my bath,
go round the bend and take another path.

Rules

Ok I'll give it a go and perhaps others will join in.
So what is a Bananagram?

Bananagrams--anagrams to drive you bananas--consist of rhymed couplets, each one containing a pair of anagrams as per the example below.


It's known that any sapient guy
Likes the line that panties supply.

We'll play this anonymously as usual. Write a rhyming couplet containing two words that are anagrams of each other (one per line) and PM it to me by the 6th December. Send as many as you like, either all together or as separate entries to confuse the guessers

Feel free to raise questions or discuss the challenge in this thread (or pm me if you prefer)

Uh I have a headache already.

Yeah I came back. I can't back away when you have poor GP tied to a table. Now I have guilt.

We can use online anagram generators, right?

This thread is solely for discussion about the poetic challenge, so now go away and put that into anagrams and poetic couplets

You've got until December 6th to send the poems to me (thank you to those who already have) but I will start hollering at those that haven't before then! We have some new members so please give it a try! On the 7th I'll put them up in a different thread and give you a week to comment, critique and guess who wrote what. If anyone wants to make changes, please PM them to me ASAP then I will name the authors. Is there anything I've missed?
