Alan-A-Dale Bad Ballad Bonanza & Free Verse Freestyle was a Robin of Sherwood fan contest, a "bad poetry" competition.
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:it's time to air all your closeted verse.
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;
