4 Days. Mutlie vote. Don't vote for your own piece. Don't vote for all five pieces.

A curse to which we bare upon our soul,
existed once to serve a purpose lost,
and though I dare not face it as a whole,
we take or leave it though there is a cost.

Till fields still filled with slag and twisted steal,
the gentle work of these mechanic times,
like storming of the pris'ners to Bastille,
unconscious repercussions of their crimes.

And though our minds are now one with machines,
identify not what we once had been
our glazing eyes must watch this wretched scene,
not following our cultures downward spin,

still striving for what seems to fit us best,
just working further toward eternal rest.




The Honey Pot Eludes the Bear

When a bagful of bones shatters and breaks
it sounds like a honey pot pawed with intent.
She was untouchable, they cried, a fake
hope strung out on a tree with branches bent.
That great, lumbering bear sat below through
day and through night, with soft, glistening eyes.
How he would cry ‘oh, my amore’ with two
clumsy hands stretched out like wings towards the sky.
But one day that tortured gaze hardened
and that great, lumbering bear climbed a tree
trunk so wide and so tall that they bargained;
‘oh, he surely must fall!’. So he drew his knees,
clenched his teeth, swung out on that slender limb -
oh, and how the cold ground rushed towards him!



Once upon a time there was a Father
Who by seven wives had seven sons.
Each one had a wife and seven daughters.
All together they weighed several tons…

“Not another piece of propagation!,
Said young Billy, sick of n-factorials.
Can’t they stick to ice cream combinations?
Or at least a husband with some morals?

But alas, I better get to counting.
One…Eight… …seven… Wait! Each had a wife?!?
…Seventy and one is their amounting.
Now I can get on with my own life.”

Tragically, he read not the whole question.
He was s’posed to pedigree depression





Procrastination

Sometimes a friend will challenge with a grin
aware that I can not resist a dare.
I'll rush to say yes, you can count me in
and never gave the risk a thought or care.

So when King James invited me to play
I took the bait and swallowed with a chomp.
I thought that I could surely find a way
to place or even win his little comp.

I did not start until it was too late
because of this, I realize I'm stuck,
a victim of my pride and sealed fate.
the words i write aren't worth a flying ****

So writing just to get this sonnet done,
I will not have to take a minus one.



Jump

Oh how it would be nice to die in flames
A hero loved and not a lofty slave
These faces fall and now forgotten names
Just ordinary bones without a face
I'd like to die among the highest planes
Be strewn across the sky for all to see
Fly far above the basest cars and trains
Be more than ordinary human beings
And so I turn my face to ember skies
The leap from grounded flame changes to flight
Instead of slipping falls and halted rise
The long descent, a journey to the light
A simple act, a reach for paradise
The shouting millions never meet my eyes

eh, I think finale's should be single vote, just seems give a more "final" and official ending imo.

But, good job with this Comp Jamie. Great turnaround with getting the rounds up quick and all.


I'm going with blue, if just because of one line.

A song about joining a sonnet contest = brilliant!

To be honest, they all suffered from sloppy execution at places, with the exception of grey. Grey was the best.

blue was the most fun to read, but also had the most form breaks.


grey for me, because of staying on form so well.
