    Weekly Poetry Contest (188) Voting - Black Irony

    Discussion in 'Bi-Weekly Poetry Contest Archives' started by Banzai, Apr 17, 2012.

    Weekly
    Poetry Contest
    One Hundred and Eighty Eight
    Voting




    A day late, but still good!

    And this week's theme was: (courtesy of Dullener) Back Irony

    Voting will end on Friday 20th April 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.

    Virtue in the Blackness
    By superpsycho


    Does it matter if you are white, black or grey?
    Not to me, I can honestly say.
    Does it really matter if it's day or night?
    No, why should I care if dark or light.
    Does it matter if sky is bright or dreary?
    Not really, I can still be cheery.
    Is it by virtue I leave these cares behind?
    No, just simply a case of being blind.

    Professor Ship-Shapely-Muffetonbleat
    By RowenaFW


    Professor Ship-Shapely-Muffetonbleat
    Made a most interesting study of everyone’s feet.
    Whether stockinged or shoed, fluffy or bare,
    Professor Ship-Shapely watched them with care.

    Professor Ship-Shapely-Muffetonbleat
    Looked at every foot he happened to meet.
    Stone feet and bone feet, furry and bird;
    And not from his lips would a sound be heard.

    Professor Ship-Shapely-Muffetonbleat
    Would sit for hours and hours, looking at feet.
    He would frown and would smile and would not say a thing;
    Then Professor Ship-Shapely would declare like a king:

    That the feet of this person, told him that he
    (For they told him the gender), was 6 foot and 3.
    He worked as a barber and had seven dogs;
    All from the Professor examining clogs.

    Professor Ship-Shapely-Muffetonbleat
    Would go on to say that this lady was neat.
    She foretold the future; had an arm made of steel;
    He knew this, of course, by her angular heel.

    Professor Ship-Shapely-Muffetonbleat
    Would tell us some more things; indeed he would bleat!
    Then all of the listeners, would clap - he was right (!),
    And say that he seemed to have a sixth sort of sight.

    Professor Ship-Shapely-Muffetonbleat
    Was sent all over the world, to strangers to greet.
    Down, under their ankles, he’d grimace and glower,
    And know them insides out, in less than an hour.

    Professor Ship-Shapely-Muffetonbleat
    Was given a prize for his knowledge of feet.
    He was chuffed (how he grinned), but he just couldn’t speak (!):
    Professor Ship-Shapely-Muffetonbleat.

    Professor Ship-Shapely-Muffetonbleat
    Had a rather fantastic obsession with feet.
    So, before he himself died and his knowledge was lost,
    He cut off his own and sent them out to be glossed.

    Black Irony: he is my cat, that royal feline...um...
    Whatever, he just sleeps all day, that furry, lazy bum.

    Black Irony is Now
    By Malisky


    There's a joy in cheapness I embrace
    It forms black coals into a maze
    All shiny walls that lead you
    To Nowhere in Particular.

    How they love to hate what I enjoy
    It turns a man into a boy...
    Be little me.

    Black irony is joy.
    Black irony is now.

    Sick of crystal food I can't enjoy
    I take a turn to smoking
    Spicy flavoured ciggarettes,
    That curls the mind into a bow.

    How they love to try and take a place
    Into a war with such a grace...
    Learn to be grace.

    Black irony is how.
    Black irony is now.

    Tears of laughter melting on a face,
    That pretty soon will get replaced
    By other fools, that target
    To be the face of the replaced.

    Sorrow has no use into a world
    That crumbles down, with such a grace...
    Oh, what a grace.

    Black irony is back.
    Black irony is now.
