It’s the March Madness of poetry, and now, KDKA’s Dave Crawley is the national champion!

He’s been competing in the online poetry tournament for a few weeks now.

With each round, he and the other poets got a new word and had just a few hours to come up with a new poem based on that word.

He won it all Thursday night with the word “Bumbershoot,” as in umbrella.
