mental_floss owner Felix Dennis is heading out on tour to promote his new book of verse, Love, Of A Kind. Stephen Fry had this to say: "Felix Dennis is the real thing. I love reading his verse and you will, too." If that's good enough for you, go book your tickets now. (UK & Ireland dates have been announced).

If you're on this side of the pond, tell your mates overseas and wait patiently for the U.S. leg of the tour. Let's also throw an impromptu poetry contest. Winner gets a free mental_floss t-shirt and one of our games. We've plucked a verse from Felix's archives. Read it, then go write your own hilarious four-line love poem:

Sex With Your Ex

Less guilt,
Less wilt,

Less nag;
More shag.

To enter, email your poem to letters@mentalfloss.com. We'll round up the best and post them next week!
