Save the Kittens Poetry Hour
Old stuff tiny, new stuff on page 2!


[size=9]Eris was a gift, a treasure, her Poetry Corner was beyond compare.

Though i'm unable to fill her shoes, i think Poetry Corner should be carried on.

This past wednesday i demanded of my listeners a Sonnet, and four wonderous participants came through. (who should bother me when i'm on for their prizes <3 )

I think, if i'm to continue this fiasco, i should give notice, for a fine work of art cannot be bludgened out in 2 hours. (well, that's a lie - abovementioned entrants provided startlingly capable sonnets in such a short time)

Each week a different topic and style shall be posted here. Entries shall be emailed to indeed@heksubah.com.

Around 9:15pm EST (6:15pm PST) on Wednesday evenings i shall do my best to do justice to these fine entries by reading them aloud on my Shanty Raid-io show. That time (6:15pm PST) also happens to be the deadline! Magical how that works, eh?

Each entry will be clearly identified with a number, color or type of breakfast food, which should be sent to me in a tell in order to vote for said entry.

So, in essence, you not only win the chance to hear your poetry brought to life by my dulcet tones, you may also win fabulous prizes!


*Often the theme will be something that can be taken in many ways. Don't ask me for clarification - do what you will with it!*

Re: Save the Kittens Poetry Hour
Will you be providing a topic and/or format that we should be writing the poems in?

Re: Save the Kittens Poetry Hour
Yes! This post was to generate enthusiasm. Be enthused!

Re: Save the Kittens Poetry Hour
Just so everyone knows, I'm posting this:
What is a limerick?

Yeah, poetry is awesome. I once won a comp on the forum, but oddly i never ended up collecting the money. (He usually logs on at my 3am.) I believe it was on the noticeboard of Winter Solstice for a good while. :P

You mean, my speed sonnetting feat wasn't enough to convince you that improv poetry was worth it? Just for that, here's a sample for you all. As your humble and unworthy Reigning Champion of Indeed's Comedy Hour Poetry Slam, I don't feel the need to compete again so soon.

thinks puzzles should simply be blanked

and much to his horror,
he's unceremoniously planked.

I know you all must be feverishly working on some last minute entries, so i won't tell you all that if i get no response i'll be discontinuing the idea and killing kittens.

*giggles*

I'd like to add a huzzah that we can send entries in advance, because I could never get to Eris' Poetry Corner, but a bit of a hurrooo that I won't be able to listen or vote! On which note... is it ok to enter if I'm not voting?

Re: Save the Kittens Poetry Hour
This contest had better bear fruit,
Else Indeed a kitten will shoot,
So now I must pick
A neat limerick
What should I write about my boot?

Re: Save the Kittens Poetry Hour
Sadly, kittens will have to die.

Yes, some of you sent in entries. I got 13 glorious limericks! I was so pleased!

Except... oh my! Sadly for the kittens, i got less voters than entries and every voter voted for a different limerick.

So, kittens will die, this idea will get shelved and each person who sent me a limerick will get 1000 poe, payable on the ocean of their choice, except Ice, because i spent all my poe there on a house.

<3 and kisses,
Indeed

However, I'm still too terrified of Indeed to aproach her for my prize, so she may keep it, in hopes that someone will sell her new kittens.
