Let’s All Enter This Bill Murray Poetry Contest

By Kelly Conaboy / September 13, 2011

I’m pretty sure Bill Murray is a person that we all love, as much as we can love a person we will never know. Right? I don’t even know that much about Bill Murray, and the constant “no one will ever believe you” stories/myths/memes/WHATEVER can get a little old, mostly because I clearly don’t understand what they are at all, but generally I and everyone else love him and that will probably never change. So why don’t we all take that love and enter this weirdo Bill Murray poetry contest? Here is the weirdo explanation of it:

Bill Murray inspires us all! He turned his artistic energy into a world famous acting career. Now, it’s time to share your creativity and personal message with the world. Here’s your chance to write a poem for Bill. The best poems will be considered for publication and recording.

Well, I don’t know. Obviously this raises a lot of questions that I wasn’t able to answer with a quick look at the website. Publication where? Who would record it and for what? What is this thing even about at all? But it doesn’t matter, because when you win it you will win $1000 apparently, from someone, and who couldn’t use an extra $1000 from someone? Apparently? Nobody couldn’t! So here is my entry:

It’s a very well constructed Shakespearian sonnet, obviously:

When I go to a movie and see
A cast of those I do not know
Oh, but there is Bill Murray
I guess that we should prob’ly go
To the snack-y stand and get
A snack to have during the thing
I think that we should not forget
To also something chandler bing
Bill Murray, O’, what a guy
I like when he says famous quotes
“Got that goin’ for me which is ni-
ce,” is one I like the most

Holy moly what a poem
Something something nursing home

OMG that was so good and there are no flaws. Try to do a better one, but I am almost positive that there is no way you’ll be able to do a better one. (Thanks for the tip, Darci!)
