OH NO! You also used Bern. Well... shucks. And here I was thinking I was all clever. Ugh.... Well, try this:

Now, I hope you Canberra how awful this entry is. I've been Havana a hard time coming up with something good, but Lima try to make up for past mistakes. After Dublin my efforts, I think I might have a real capital pun* for you here.

*I just hope it doesn't merit capital punishment

...sigh...

Well, I'm going to Bree extra careful with this entry. My last one I spent a lot of time on, but I felt like it wandered to-and-fRohan a bit. But, then again, I spent so much time on it and only got zero points!? When I saw the judging my Angmar really began to Mount. I felt like I was drowning in a sea of Rhun. So, this round, I Wold like to take my time. I'm going to take a good Hoarwell spent and make this the best entry yet. I want to earn a lot of points. But if not, maybe me and the judges can find some sort of middle ground or Middle Earth, so to speak, and I can earn at least one point.

aknerd - It was going well (+3) until you decided to use the wrong word (-1). Lima, Peru is pronounced Lee-mah while Lima, Ohio is pronounced lie-mah. The latter isn't a capital of anything but it is a county seat. Capital idea (+1). Total x2 = +6

Reton8 - It's a bit stretchy but it works (+2). No one gained any points in the previous round, but it spurned you to try Arda. Total x2 = +4

Round Five Against the Sworded Axe
It is time to choose whether to branch out or return to your roots. It's only going to get harder when we leave this punnery behind us. Barking up the wrong tree will cost you.

You have until Saturday, July 21st.

Well, it was supposed to be "let me" not "I'm a". In fairness, it was by far the worst pun in my entry. This time, I'll try not to go so far out on a limb.

Here's my en-tree. The wording is a bit flowery

Juliet:
O Romorel, Romorel! wherefern art thou Romorel?
Deny thy father and refuse thy neem;
Or, if thou Wilt nut, be but sworn my love vine,
And I'll no longer bee a Capricot.

Romorel:
Shall I hear morel, or shall I speak at thistle?

Juliet:
'Tis but vine name that is my enemy;
Thou art thyself, thoak not a Montreegue.
What's Montreegue? it is nor petal, nor root,
Nor stigma, nor style, nor any other part
Belonging to a plant. O, bee some other name!
What's in a name? that which we call a rose
By any other name would smell as sweet.

I know this thread is far too under-active and I feel like there isn't much a drive to keep this going, but will this last round be scored?

Can't be bothered. Your total will end up negative, probably negating any gain from the previous round.
