    Discussion in 'Monthly Poetry Contest Archives' started by Banzai, Jan 16, 2012.

    Hopefully we're far enough into 2012 now that you've stop scribbling the 2 over the 1, and we can get down to some poetry.

    • All entries must be on the set theme.
    • Only one entry per member.
    • No editing of entries once posted without my express permission (i.e. PM me and ask).
    • Poems must be titled
    • Entries must not have previously posted on the forums, and are not permitted to be posted for critique until AFTER the contest is completed.
    • Any violation of these rules will result in disqualification of entries, and possibly infraction.

    The entry stage will be open for seven days, closing on Monday 23rd January 2012.

    The voting stage will begin immediately, and will be open for three days, ending on Thursday 26th January 2012.

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

    The next (180th) contest's theme will be (courtesy of ClusterChuck): Goodbyes, and it will be opened on Monday 23rd January 2012.

    Be imaginative, have fun, and get writing.

    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

    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.
