    Weekly Poetry Contest (226) Voting - Cerberus

    Discussion in 'Bi-Weekly Poetry Contest Archives' started by Banzai, Feb 18, 2013.

    Weekly
    Poetry Contest
    Two Hundred and Twenty Six
    Voting



    Vote, and vote often!

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

    Voting will end on Thursday 21st February 2013.

    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.

    Cerberus
    By Drusy


    In Hades dank depths,
    On stalactite shores,
    Where the river laps,
    The hands of scores
    Of countless damned
    Pound the ground
    Below where Cerberus sits.

    No dog of war let loose, is he,
    A chaining beast, to guard the free
    He paws and maws the souls of men,
    Cast low from the mighty Zeus.

    Heel, mongrel mutt and muster!
    To the black side of your master,
    The caster of fates beyond the door,
    Retreat.
    Lay monster at his feet,
    Until I too pass down the waters,
    Then let me peacefully beyond
    You mighty Cerberus beast.

    Cerberus
    By Aristotle


    Hears a lulling song
    Doom awaits beyond his might
    The soldiers sneak past

    Three Heads, One Heart
    By seelifein69


    He was the guard…
    The embodiment of Hell
    These three heads,
    That inside one dwell.

    He can be Hades,
    The breeze of Persephone,
    Going from Venus to Mars
    Right in front of me.

    Changing faster than
    Tidal movements of the sea
    This great beast of a man,
    Snarling and snapping at me.

    It would be a Herculean task
    To change you...to choose....
    Which heads to sever?
    Feeling either way I lose.

    Call Off Your Hellhound
    By Lauren


    Call off your hellhound
    of many snapping jaws.
    Play a fair game, abide
    by the living world's laws.

    You know that I am just one man
    so fight me one on one.
    If I must face both you and them
    I'll have no choice but to run.

    Call off your snarling hellhound
    with all its angry eyes.
    If I must be torn apart let you
    alone cut me down to size.
