  15. Avatar Sneaky"LoA"Cleazy

    [lightning cracks down]

  16. Avatar StayGold

    oh oops, then mine should be disqualified, because I had posted it before this. =/

  17. Avatar Render

    sorry. you have to write a new one.

  18. Avatar Darch

    hi pianoman can i enter my B.F. poem that i had already writtin? if thats ok with you?

  19. Avatar Render

    okay and about the punctuation. none is needed poetry isn’t about the form, so much as the way it makes you feel. if punctuation contributes to the desired effect use it. if it gets in the way, by all means avoid it! just came back from new york and i cant wait to grade these!!!! thank you all.

  20. Avatar Render

    ahhhhh! so cool! poems poems poems. as for those who said all they write is poems, i’ve already written twelve, and such. i will hunt you down and read them all!!!!!!

  21. Avatar Mighty-Joe Young (A.K.A Strong Coffee)(LoA)

    hey pianoman i haven’t had this much fun since the swimmingpool challenge

  22. Avatar Mighty-Joe Young (A.K.A Strong Coffee)(LoA)

    thanks hobo i must have done that on accident lol

  23. Avatar StudMuffin (LoA)

    I wrote a frickin poem.

  24. Avatar Stovohobo

    Interesting…the one time MJY uses punctuation and caps is the one time he’s talking about the disregard of them…

    No offense, btw. You’re like my favorite.

  25. Avatar Mighty-Joe Young (A.K.A Strong Coffee)(LoA)

    Yes multiple entries are allowed unless you are from Vogon.

  26. Avatar Mighty-Joe Young (A.K.A Strong Coffee)(LoA)

    @Sam, that is because it is a poetry challenge. Grammer Nazis are not allowed in the domain of the poet.
    When it comes to poetry you can take everything you ever knew and forget it, there are no rules that govern the poet. There are systems by which you can explain what the poet does, but they are rules they are photographs of the poets work. We murder english so something new can be reborn, we are poets.

  27. Avatar Sam Ervin

    I suppose it’s not the content, it’s more of the disregard for spelling and such in the challenge itself… probably doesn’t reflect well on Ficly.

    That being said, I don’t care. :D

  28. Avatar nesdil

    @sam ervin well of course. poetry is the best.

  29. Avatar Sam Ervin

    This challenge beat out TextMason’s Sign challenge?

    Good Lord.

  30. Avatar Music-Hearted

    For the record, I’ve written several poems on here, haha. But I’ll enter.

  31. Avatar nesdil

    are we allowed multiple entries?

  32. Avatar nesdil

    haha all i write are poems..awesome.

  33. Avatar g²LaPianistaIrlandesa

    I’ve been doing quite a bit more poetry than I have in the past, mostly on my blog (, but I’ll see what I can come up with for this.

  34. Avatar Abstract

    O, pianoman, your voice I heard
    And I declare your challenge well and good
    So now I sit where once before I stood
    And set to marking down word after word.

  35. Avatar Render

  36. Avatar Match
