Alan-A-Dale Bad Ballad Bonanza & Free Verse Freestyle was a Robin of Sherwood fan contest, a "bad poetry" competition.

flyer for the third contest

It began in 1990 and ran for at least three years.

The results from the third contest were to have been published in Herne's Stepchildren #11. The moderator was Lonnie Korenstein and that year's topic was "What I did on my summer vacation in Sherwood."

It's here, It's here, that shocking time of the year.

Tremble good artistes, and shake in fear:
the muse is strong,
the muse is nigh,
[phrase in indecipherable calligraphy]
It cannot die.
So send in your best,
or send in your worst;

it's time to air all your closeted verse.
