The Poetry Game

Back story: I met a guy online back in 1999 when I used to play Starcraft non-stop. He used to run his own low class poetry website. A handful of the people from the Starcraft clan I ran would post on his forums and post their own poetry. After a while he came up with a game for us all to play.

How to play: You write a poem based upon the word the above poster challenged you to write about. You don't have to have any writing skills. This is just for fun. The poem can be written in whatever style you'd like. It can be funny, inappropriate, serious, romantic, emo, rhyming, or anything you'd like it to be. After your poem is completed you then post a word below it to challenge the next person with.

Examples:

Word: Mountain Dew

Quote
Do The Dew - Author: Liquid (2003)

Here is a Mountain Dew from me to you.
Still cold and bubbly, like the thoughts of you in my head.

It's so refreshing, just like you once were.
But you've lost the fizz. Now you're watered down and flat.

You took my love. Like how the Dew takes my seed.
Lowering my count so others can't have such fun.

Not much love left inside. Your acid tore me apart.
You drank your fill. You sucked my heart dry.

All that is left? Only the drops you can't reach.
Stuck on the lip of the can as you still desperately suck.

Hurray for Yellow #5! Cancer is my punishment.
I shouldn't have loved you. Now I slowly die.

You don't care. You obeyed your thirst.
You did the Dew. I hate you.

Word: Ambivalence

Quote
Ambivalence - Author: Liquid (2003)

Ambivalence has taken my innocence.
She doesn't feel as I do. She's given me pestilence.
Under evil influences she stabs at my heart,
Taking what's left of me as I fall apart.

She's pernicious with glee, slowly killing me.
Her eyes covered in darkness, it's all she sees.
Smiling with mischievous tendencies she won't hear me out.
She's believing her own fallacies as she too falls apart.

I'm delirious as I watch her sanity degrade.
She's in no dismay. In my blood she wades.
And as my consciousness fades, she is still oblivious.
Innocence gone, lost in her own ambivalence.

This game is hard... But I'm up for the fun.

Word: Fanime

Fanime, Thank you - Dentyne

To be here when I wake up,
is a surprise I never thought would be real.
Being here did something to me,
that I can't imagine.
So, would I be misunderstood if I said,
Fanime I miss you.
I take lots of pictures on all 4 days,
so I can remember all the fun that I had.
It has been 361 days,
but already I've gone insane.
I know I'll go here again,
no matter how far or expensive.
So, I just want the staff to know,
that I thank you.

Word: Fun

Yeah, it's a tough one. Probably not many people will play it. :-X

Let's do a really simple strange poem. :)

Word:Simple

How Simple It is-By DarkShinigamiX3

Oh how simple it is to touch your hand,
and to cry with you while we stand.
Oh how simple our love for each other can show,
and my words flow through your heart like cupids bow.

So simple that I can tell you I love you,
and all my sins brush away because of what you do.
So simple it is to mourn your grave,
all because you could not be as brave.

Word: Fish

Let's go Limmerick style this time.

___________________________________________
The Big One - by Liquid

What drives a man to fish?
Is it the goal of getting food for a dish?
Or is it something more fulfilling?
A challenge to nature that is rather compelling.
Catching the big one is always your wish.

It can be done with a lure or bait.
It requires patience, so you must be willing to wait.
Enticing your prey takes pratice and skill.
Hooking a fish can be a big thrill.
But catching nothing is something you'll hate.

When the big one bites your line,
The strong fight will be your sign.
You reel it up to the boat.
You pick it up getting ready to gloat.
Wtf, this fish isn't an inch past nine. :'(

Word:Anime

Anime Is Not A Women -By DarkShinigamiX3

Anime is not a women one can kiss,
nor is she the one you can miss.
Anime is hard since poems for it makes no sence,
Like a potatoe swiming in a bucket of ketchup thats become dense.

Anime is my women who I sleep with everyday,
with our clothes on, we tell each other ,"how was your day?"
She is like a bird with a beautiful beak,
Rick James said it best, "She's a super freak!"


So beautiful :'( Much more touching then Liquids. :'(

Word:Violence

Violencia con un amor- by me.

La violencia de el amor quien queria,
La muerte de su sonria.
Dios me lo quito por mis pecados,
Y vivir como un muertopescado.

Cuando me pego y me hizo sangrar,
y gritar pero no lograr.
De quitar mi vida con la pistola,
no mas porque no le dije,"te amo y hola"

Um... I'll just use the word "fanime"

Here's a random string of thoughts about fanime. I guess it can be considered free form?

After Midnight at Fanime~Michiko.

adjust the waistband, fix the hair in the elevator mirror. 
walk out of the elevator and onto the patterned carpet.
glide into the con center, hook a right and walk past the drunk bishounen.
past the tables of tired, texting people.
locking eyes with a somewhat attractive kakashi. 
judging the distance between me and the gaming room... must keep trudging.
some guy runs up and tells me to look at his sign... "the game."
what a douche.
almost at the gaming room... must hug people offering free hugs...
one oddball in the group has a "casual sex" sign. 
lol.
I'll pass, he's not showered the whole weekend.

Word: Kakashi


Kakashi - by Liquid

He's got Sharingan. He conceals his face.
He competes with Gai. They always race.

He steals abilities. Copying your moves.
Owning your face. He'll never lose.

He trains Naruto, Sakura and Sai.
No green jumpsuits, like Lee and Gai.

Looking for Sasuke. Where is that dude?
Went off with Orochimaru. Damn, that's crude.

Kakashi almost died. Powerful is Pain.
But he came back to life. That shit's insane.

There are things that I cannot contain.
My heart, my soul, my destiny.
I makes me insane.
I hope for some kind of refrain.
But I can't wait for it.
Oh, the pain.

On the back of a white stallion, I ride.
The reigns in my hand and a sword by my side.
I slay my enemies in a single stride.
He lets me court for maidens off his back.
and he even does tricks for scooby snacks.

Glue

may change the object's color as well
makes a mess without caution
puts things together somewhat well.

Outside the window I warmly sit.
Maybe the wind will cool me down a bit.
Boy, I smell good,
The way peach pie should.
What this I hear?
A growling tummy?
It's a fox!
And he thinks I smell yummy.
