POMES (poems]

    Based on the “International Library of Poetry” scam that tricked thousands of people into buying awful poetry anthologies by promising prizes (also for sale), POMES tells the true story of a serious English poet who attempted to find out just how bad would a poem have to be in order to be rejected.   His horrible poems, “Wots A Pome?” “Nicky Nacky Noo” “Yew Gotta Larf” and “Flubblebop” were “awarded” and published under the names “Stephen Abutlol”, “Wadda Ass Iyam”, and “Wergle Flomp” -- spawning the annual Wergle Flomp Bad Poetry contest.  As he descends from serious to hilarious, the other “award-winning” poets from around the world battle for prizes with words and wallets.
