    Voting time!

    And this week's theme was: (courtesy of Spiderfingers) Medusa

    Voting will end on Thursday 26th January 2012.

    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.

    A tangled mess
    By Leatherworth Featherfist


    A tangled mess the sleuth confessed; Medusa's head was wrapping,
    Medusa flashed a concrete cast, the stone she set was trapping.
    Although the form could last a storm, the boy he held no vigor,
    a life was stone, and to the bone, Medusa's eyes the trigger.

    Medusa If
    By Cacian


    Medusa's venge
    would she turn stern
    would shreek a foe
    hiddrance to halt
    cruisers of dread.

    Medusa's ruse
    is but a bruise,
    symbols of plots
    forever strop,
    cursed to a brupt
    grudge is begrudged.

    Medusas' blogh
    another's rock,
    truncheon of doom
    trickles in glogg
    splatter the lochs.

    Hades' s thrown
    amidst the shrewns
    shrivelled and gleed
    darkest of darks,
    costly is dured
    Ahura's flunged.

    Zeus is a treas'n
    as crevace throbes
    timbers a truce,
    scatters the lured
    woes upon blows.

    Who else but drole
    crippled and louche
    crowned to a frown
    face to a rust
    cinders undone
    vision is dust.

    Athena's muse
    Medusa's fool
    crippled and cruxed
    is but a rule.
