    Weekly Poetry Contest (112) Voting - Pets

    Discussion in 'Bi-Weekly Poetry Contest Archives' started by Banzai, Apr 26, 2010.

    Voting


    Time to vote!

    This week's theme was (courtesy of rescuecatsrule): Pets

    Voting will end on Thursday 29th April 2010.

    Voting for yourself is entirely at your own discretion. I'm frankly sick of discussion on the matter, so any in here will be deleted. If you want to vote for yourself, go for it, but I personally wouldn't do that unless I genuinely believed mine was the best.


    The winning poem will be stickied for a week in the poetry contest.



    Oh, and if I catch anyone cheating, their entry will be removed from the contest and you will be unable to enter a poem into the contest for a month. Sorry to be such an ogre about this, I don't want to be, but rules are rules and are in place for valid reasons. If you can not follow the rules, you face the consequences.

    Best of luck to all entrants, and happy voting.

    How to be a hamster
    By lavendershy


    wake up at night,
    slip outside.
    dig a little
    chew the walls
    climb into your house
    and scramble out again.
    potter around the carpet
    open the fridge, fill your cheeks
    with food enough to last you years.
    dump it on the floor, hope
    it'll keep. lick both hands and
    rub behind your ears; use one leg
    to dry it off. find a giant wheel and
    run inside until you're dizzy
    sleep at dawn
    repeat.​

    He's named after a Gin, not a guitarist
    by LordKyleOfEarth


    Com'ere Hendrix!
    You beast you lout.
    Crapping in gardens,
    making old ladies shout.

    I just washed you yesterday
    and your coat's all a mess
    although I'm not much cleaner
    I really must confess

    Hiking beside me or
    chasing squirrels
    while I climb
    I teach you new tricks,
    whenever I have time

    But alas I'm a student
    and I'm never at home.
    So for now, I can't own you
    and must romp all alone.

    Dear Mel
    By Meliha


    Dear Mel

    You call me your pet
    And you take me to the vet
    And play with me much
    And give me biscuits that crunch
    And water so sweet
    And lots of red meat;
    For all that I thank you
    And I will always protect you
    And we’ll always be friends
    Because love never ends
    And I love you so much
    More then those biscuits that crunch.

    Anything you like
    I like it too
    That is why I chew
    On your favorite shoe.

    And when I bark all night
    And you can’t get any rest
    When you finally get up
    I love you the best.

    And I like the park
    Where we take our walk
    But I often wonder
    Do you think I can talk?
    Because you ask me questions
    When I play with my ball
    Like: do I think he loves you?
    Or do I think he’ll call?

    And I always fall asleep
    When we watch a movie
    Unless you give me something
    That is nice and chewy.

    But why do you spray me
    With rosemary and lime
    As if having a few flees
    Was some great big crime.

    And that one morning
    When you couldn’t find your slipper
    I wish I could tell you
    I gave it to my friend Chipper.
    And to say I’m sorry
    I brought a dead mouse
    As a special treat for you
    Straight to our house.
    I didn’t even mind
    That you had it to yourself
    Because I love you my friend
    And that will never end.

    Friendly Attack
    By Liquid Nature


    Hands tremor, with each shy twist
    of cold steel, almost surreal
    the looming anticipation,
    grounds absorb the pounds
    of paws.
    Approaching quickly
    each stride of its limbs
    fueling the fervent whims
    of a joyful companion
    as it smacks its jaws
    in harmonious sequence.
    The pooling of saliva
    aids the trajectory of tongue
    onto
    my
    face.

    too much
    By bachatan


    too much waiting,
    waiting,
    always waiting,

    wanting,
    jumping,
    running,

    why?
    why is it that,
    no matter how close I am
    no matter how happy I am to see him
    he gets tired of me

    I feel good being close,
    letting him feel my nose

    every time I hear the door,
    I know,
    there is a new chance,
    that he will be happy to see me
    that we will play like we used to

    he used to want me to stand up like him, and walk on two legs,
    he would guide me

    now,
    I hear anger in his voice,
    specially when I talk to him
