His poem titled 'the areola," (yes that's right, no caps) won out over 35 other contestants.
He said his inspiration came when his parents went away for the weekend and he found a stockpile of vintage Playboys his father had hidden in the garage.
When asked if this was appropriate subject matter for a Jr High contest winner his teacher said, "Everything else that was submitted was littered with spelling mistakes and texting lingo. We were pleased this was at least focused on a single subject and, bonus… it rhymed!"
Bill says he's happy that he learned the word "bola" in his Spanish class just in time for the poem, but he's even happier that he's finally not being beaten up after school by the jocks for his poetry, who have taken a real liking to this piece.
Bill's on a roll now and hopes to publish his next poem in the school paper, entitled "the nipple."
Here's Bill's winning submission:
some are dark as Coca-Cola
some are lovely shades of pink
and firm as ripened minneolas
near the tip, like Pensacola
some are big as dinner plates
others small like most men’s bolas
better loved than big payola
some will puff up nice and hard
when rubbed just right with corn Mazola
draw one now with my Crayola
take a hi-def video
and watch it on my Motorola
