    I'm a Poet and I Didn't Know It...

    Yesterday's Competition Winner: Curley5959! Congratulations, you've just won a neat Charging Station for your Nintendo DS! Your entry was the cutest of all, although there was interesting competition! We had a lot of fun going through the various submissions (we'll be compiling a list soon, and for the 1st competition too). You will be contacted by a member of the staff soon to claim your prize.

    [​IMG]

    Ah, a poem... Nice, that should be something I have a chance at [​IMG]

    By the way, is there any rule on the format you send your poem in? I'd normally send it in OpenDocument, but I guess you guys use Microsoft Word and can't read that?

    At least poetry is a little easier on the patience [​IMG]

    Does the poem have to rhyme?

    Can it be a Haiku?

    You're a writer, you may write it in any for you wish, but ask yourself, if you were the judge, which kind of poem you'd enjoy the most [​IMG]

    Yeah, I can do this.

    The question is.....who to write about.

    "Hadrian"​


    there once was a member called Hadrian,
    in fact there still is, renamed Gaydrian
    hailing from Southend,
    he does not pretend,
    that he likes the odd nacho cheese McCoys.

    he was once a well known Ghostbuster,
    but that career ended, what a bummer.
    now with his time he makes us all happy,
    whilst he's changing his kids nappies,
    informing us with his latest release piece.

    the Atari 2600 is his baby,
    whether it's better than his IRL, that's a maybe.
    in H.E.R.O he knows,
    just where to go,
    making it his favourite game of the century.

    we once tried to record a Tempcast,
    Episode 16, I'm scared it's our last.
    you gave me a smile,
    I felt like I could walk miles
    with you, my love, hand in hand.

    moozxy, I'm sorry it was bad.
    science, dude, we were a fad.
    (I think I once slept with Orc - oh egad!)
    p1ngpong, I loved you,
    B-Blue, who are you?
    ultimately it's Hadrian who is my boo~

    That's a horrible idea.
    Everybody will write about Toni.
