4, that is a good amount for the first day. :D
Let's keep this up you guys. I would really love it if at least 10 people participated! If we gain popularity this could become a Merit Worthy contest. :D

Knight

Their vital signs ceased,
We believed that they were dead.
The solders from war,
Revived by a force unknown,
Time to seek retribution.

I'm what  you call a 'first-timer' in poetry. Well here's my tanka:

The undead amble
In a town were survival
Is a morbid gleam.
They will eventually
Find us, but we still affray.

Submissions are closed!
Thank you to all who entered, judging will be given in an hour or two.
Or three.
Or four.
Maybe even five.
I could be cruel and say six.
Or even more cruel and say seven.
Let's go with evil for eight.
Evil like Plankton if I said nine.
I'm out of nifty things to say at ten.

You get the point, judging will be held today. :D

AND SO STARTS THE JUDGING.

Wolf1991
Vengeful Award
You thought it would be
Different now that you're dead.
It seems you were wrong.
You hunger for human flesh.
Aware that you are undead.

I think. It would suck to be the person you are describing. It radiates a twinge of anger and a batch of regret, I love it.
Ernie15
You just got an Award
You are outnumbered
You cannot stop the undead
The apocalypse
Is just beginning for you
Night is alive with the dead

I know I will not be going for a nightly stroll now, good job on using the doom to your advantage, Ernie.

SupaLegit
You screw up Award
A sickly mistake,
This time science went too far:
Demonic creatures
Now roam the deserted streets.
Who will survive the undead?

It gives a sense of gloom and doom, by far the most emotionally striking I've ever seen of your batch. Kudos.

TackyCrazyTNT
The Hopeless Award
The terrified shrieks
Of those fleeing from the dead,
Echo in the night air.
But help will not arrive now,
And the world will be ravaged.

Ahhhh I don't wanna live there. Great job though, Tacky.

GhostOfMatrix
The Never-thought-would-be-possible-scenario Award
Their vital signs ceased,
We believed that they were dead.
The solders from war,
Revived by a force unknown,
Time to seek retribution.

You scare me. I would be afraid. I am afraid. Don't kill me.

Deathopper
The Survival Award
The undead amble
In a town were survival
Is a morbid gleam.
They will eventually
Find us, but we still affray.

I quite like it, except I didn't enjoy the bump you made with "were" That confused the tar out of me, but still. Kudos to you.

OKIE DAY!
Now that that is out of the way, I will begin with Runner Up, Second Place, And First Place.

NOTE: This isn't merit worthy yet. Bit it could be if we have people that stick with this. LET'S GO!

Runner up!
TackyCrazyTNT

The terrified shrieks
Of those fleeing from the dead,
Echo in the night air.
But help will not arrive now,
And the world will be ravaged.

I really liked this one, but it wasn't on the same level as our top two. Keep it up, and

Second Place!
Ernie15

You are outnumbered
You cannot stop the undead
The apocalypse
Is just beginning for you
Night is alive with the dead

This one was great, and it was very close to beating the winner, Next week will definitely prove better outcomes, seeing as the winner can't win twice in a row.

First Place!
Wolf1991

You thought it would be
Different now that you're dead.
It seems you were wrong.
You hunger for human flesh.
Aware that you are undead.

I really really loved this one. It was worthy of first place, So congratulations Wolf.

The new theme is:

Eating Utensils

Have fun with that one! :D

Yay!!! :D

I have no life outside of studying and writing, so here goes.

Shining spoon and fork,
Lying on the white place mat,
How I adore thee.
Without you, my food is lost.
May you always be near me.

Fork, what hast thou done?
To have mated with yonder
Spoon, is nost unheard of.
Now you do not call yourself
A fork, but a spoonfork. Spork.
