First, I will post the overall rules, and then I will post the specifics about this week.

Original rules, as stated by Ubertuna:

It must fit the week's theme.
It must be submitted by the deadline.
It cannot have inappropriate language in it.
It cannot be stolen (if you plagiarize, we will find you).


Also:

The poem must be created for this contest
A user cannot win two weeks in a row (though everyone is welcome to submit every week!)
Only one submission per user will be accepted

As we all know, the winner will recieve a merit, and their poem will be featured on the _Poetry_ page.


OK, on to this week's topic...Again, we are having a style instead of a theme. Also, this week we are having TWO WEEKS to do it, instead of the usual one. Why? Because this will be an EPIC poem. Or, rather, a parody of an epic poem. Generally, epic poetry is very long, and tells the serious story of a heroic figure. Well, this week, the epic figure is YOU! Write a long poem (I'll leave the definition of 'long' up to you, but give it a good go) about the heroic story of you! It can be silly, serious, whatever... just have fun with it. You have two weeks, so have a great time!

The Eternal Question

Lord, bless my spirit and my soul,
When heaven's ticket I have got,
I'll ask that question I don't know:
Is hell cold, or is it hot?

Some say that hell is made of fire
While others say it's like ice.
From SoCal summers, it's in the wire
That punishment is served with fire.
But stay in some white guy's house, pray tell,
Will teach you ice
Is cold as hell
And would suffice.

Oooo....Judging....

Hurry up with it! Where's the judging? You said you'd have it done by now? The day Alt judges on time is the day hell freezes over! Judging? Is it this weekend or next weekend?

Sorry...just getting out the built up tension from those Pokethread entrants...

I made this one at school

Sadness
smells like growing mold in an old abandended house,
smells like doggy doo-doo on a clean carpet,
tastes like cake and brownies with no sugar,
sounds like a wolf howling in an old abandoned night sky,
AWHOOOO!
feels like a knife peircing through my heart,
feels like an empty soul in my body,
Sadness

Ugh, I know this is the first, and hopefully only, late reply . . . but could someone guest judge for me? I'm totally swamped right now, and I honestly have no time . . . .

Whoever judges, the new theme should be trenches(interpret it any way you want) and the deadline should be Saturday, June 4(or whatver the date is then)

I mean it doesn't really matter to me but who's going to do it? Should we ask a mod to?...

Somebody just judge. Or should I? Maybe someone who has been on this thread for a while? Oh wait that's most of us.

I'll do it if you guys want me too.

OK then. But I like how you want to judge this one and you haven't even judged the Haiku one. That one has been due to judge for 5 days.

I did that on purpose you know. Anyways, I'll judge that one first if it'll make you feel better. If someone better comes along to judge this one that'll be even better.

Is no problem. Go ahead and judge whichever one you want. Or both.
