Poetry  Contest Limerick Edition

It's that time of year where the weather is changing here on the east coast, pumpkin spiced beverages abound, and we host our second annual poetry contest! This year, we ask that you dig deep and explore the theme of "the future of anthropology" with an original limerick.


What is a limerick?
It is a five line poem (a stanza of five lines, with the first, second, and fifth rhyming with one another and having three feet of three syllables each; and the shorter third and fourth lines also rhyming with each other, but having only two feet of three syllables) that is written to be funny. The last line generally delivers the punch line.

Contest Entry Rules:
All entries must 1) follow @americananthro, 2) submit via Twitter,  and 3) use both #ThisIsAnthro and #AnthroLimerick.


Prizes Rules
Eligible submissions will be entered to win one of three prizes including: a 2020 Annual Meeting Registration, a year of AAA Membership, and a $100 Amazon Gift Card.

*Prizes are not transferable.
