Duelyst April Poem Contest


#1

Hello everyone! This will be Duelyst’s first poem contest (excluding past haiku contests) I’m not very good at introductions so lets just cut to the chase.

Prompt:

  • Argeon Highmayne has just summoned you to write a poem on his most recent victory in a great battle and you’re supposed read it out to him and his subjects. (The battle can be made up.) As long as it rhymes and is at least four lines it works!
Rules
  • Submission must fit with the prompt.

  • Submission must be four lines long and must rhyme.

  • Only one submission and you can edit it as many times as you want.

  • Original posts only, plagiarism is not allowed.

  • No post can violate the forums Moderation Policy.

  • Submissions must be in by April 30th 2018.

Prizing
  • 1st place - 5 Spirit Orbs + Poet forum title + Place in Jury for next contest (JNC)

  • 2nd place - 4 Spirit Orbs + JNC

  • 3rd place - 3 Spirit Orbs + JNC

All others eligible will be awarded 1 core orb.

If how I worded things look similar to you, yes I did borrow how I wrote the prizing and rules from mmf.

Submissions close on April 30th after that there will be a week long voting period where the best go through to be voted on by you.

As I’m currently the only Jury I am asking you to help decide, so like your favourite submissions so they get through. @isbee Please like every post on this thread when the voting starts, thanks in advance.

Reeee haiku is poetry


#3

All though I like haikus this is currently not the point, I’m looking for poems like W.B Yeat’s work. (I don’t know the name of that style.)


#4

Reeee the only poetry I can do is haiku


#5

Roses are red
Violets are blue
This doesn’t rhyme but you should be able to.


#6

That’s only 3 lines


#7

It doesn’t fit with the prompt either and it doesn’t even rhyme, I’m not going to submit.


#8

Time to get my poetry hat on!


#9

So it’s only about Argeon? Do we need to somehow flatter him?

There once Argeon
Holding the banner majestic
But then comes Brome
Claiming his destiny achieved
(Can I get problem when reciting this poem to Argeon and his subjects? XD)

I want to make poem about Sajj too :smiley:

Maybe next time.

I don’t know how battle crazed brome is (and zir’an isn’t) so it makes sense to do it about argeon.

:crossed_swords: In the war zone, I raise egos :crossed_swords:
:crossed_swords: In set reveals, I’m incognito :crossed_swords:
:crossed_swords: 1 attack minions, are my amigos :crossed_swords:
:crossed_swords: I am cancer, in need of chemo :crossed_swords:
:crossed_swords: You guessed it right, I’m grand strategos :crossed_swords:

I know this is a parody, but I’m not trying to win. You can disqualify me as much as you want as long as I have my memes
