Write a poem of 40 or fewer lines, with this as the first line: “I want to play in a band with a crazy name”

The winner will receive a signed copy of Horoscopes for the Dead, Collins' latest poetry collection, as well as bragging rights that Collins chose their poem as a winner!

Deadline is July 3, 9 p.m. EST. For details on the contest and entering, click here.
There are two kinds of folks who sit around thinking about how to kill people:
psychopaths and mystery writers.

I'm the kind that pays better.

This planet has - or rather had - a problem, which was this: most of the people living on it were unhappy for pretty much all of the time. Many solutions were suggested for this problem, but most of these were largely concerned with the movement of small green pieces of paper, which was odd because on the whole it wasn't the small green pieces of paper that were unhappy.
— Douglas Adams, The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy
