i still dont get this whole poetry thing but i have to say that sai poem was the only one i could really understand thus why i voted for it.Cuz honestly the language level on most of those poem was too god dam high for me to understand the meaning behind it :3. And i cant vote for something i cant understand. (Sorry im french)

 

on another note Stawhat poem was smooth and nice to read i loved it :D, every poem had something about it  but staw and tale"s poem were more appealing .

It is, indeed. I've come here at least three times and have yet to choose the one I feel is "best". As it gets closer to the end of the voting period, I will try to decide and vote.

I voted for Metal Heart, mainly because he/she had some of the best lines here. I thought they were suited to bringing out the theme (or at least, making me feel it). Considering that thematically, most of the poems were very close, I think that is laudable. 

 

Some of the other poems I liked: Misty's (had some lines which were striking), Satoshi's (I liked how you used the allusion to Alice in Wonderland) and Oben's (stood out because it was so different, but I didn't understand it: forgive my dumbness.)

“The man who passes the sentence should swing the sword. If you would take a man's life, you owe it to him to look into his eyes and hear his final words. And if you cannot bear to do that, then perhaps the man does not deserve to die.”― Eddard Stark, A game of thrones

In case of a tie, I'll open a second poll between the tied posters only. The winner of that is the winner of the contest. If it's still tied then, both win.

I just wanted to say on perhaps an interesting note, I'm part of my university's arts and literature magazine as an editor (part of a group that gets to decide what goes in the magazine and then makes sure it's all pretty)...and I've read maybe during the course of one semester over 100 poems nowhere near the quality of the ones here...like to the point where we are arguing over which is the least bad at times...so real props to all the writers here, because our literary magazine is snooty as hell, and at least three of these entries have slots well above what we selected last semester...

 

Grats guys & gals.

Is a man not entitled to the sweat of his brow?

'No!' says the man in Washington, 'It belongs to the poor.'

'No!' says the man in the Vatican, 'It belongs to God.'

'No!' says the man in Moscow, 'It belongs to everyone.'

Wow I actually tied for first, this means a lot guys. Thanks to everyone who voted for me and for the nice comments as well.

Well done everyone who partook, especially you Oben who's poem was amazing, my favourite of the lot. And thank you for letting me pick the next theme as well.

For the next theme I was thinking something like Passion if it hasn't already been done.
