I had started this on a previous board, and because of circumstances, I cancelled it.  I would like to re-start this contest, since it was my idea to begin with.  The contest will run for two weeks until Saturday, November 25th, and the prize will be a tshirt with a 790 head and your choice of a line of 790 poetry or text!  So get your creative juices flowing!  Any board member can enter, except for Ketana as she will be the judge of the contest, so keep your submissions flowing!  Four letter words are okay as long as the whole poem isn't anything but four letter words!  :7902:

Ode to a corpsicle -

I am just a head,
In love with the dead,
My tongue is stuck,
When I want to suck,
Your pearly white skin,
Can a robot head sin?
The price I gladly will pay,
To be yours someday,
My love goes on forever,
My words they are so clever,
If only I had a body,
To curl up with my hottie,
Life would be so grand,
For a robot head with no hand.

A Poem to Kai, My Precious Post Mortem Popsicle

by 790

"Oh my dark delicious iced one,
How you make my circuits click!
Let me rip off your drab wrapper
And thaw you out with a lick.
Let me taste your creamy goodness
Down to your ice lolly stick.
How I yearn to suck your sweetness,
From your pout down to your - "

"790! That's enough!"

Forgive the double post, but I find that bad poetry comes easily late at night...............                                                                                                                                                   Canned Id Picture

When I was young and full of guts,
I'd frolic with the other sluts,
Showing off our tits and butts
To every other passing klutz,


With no thought of tomorrow.

The bars were full, the lights were bright.
I served them drinks, demure, polite.
Some men were sweet, some full of shite.
I took my pleasures where I might.


OK, my life was shallow...

The Cleric's heart was cold as ice.
A stupid kid, I paid the price.
The Order's version of justice -
I had to go for the Big Slice.


The horror, oh, the horror.

My old life's gone, and here I am,
Stuck with Love-Slut and Meatbag Stan,
Longing in vain for my dead man;
A consciousness inside a can


Stewing in bile and sorrow.

They smirk to hear I love him so,
Don't understand my pain and woe.
If only I had parts to show
Him all the love tricks that I know


And we could come together.

No arms to hold him, lips to kiss -
What fresh hell could be bad as this?
No chance to realise my wish
To give my man some bedroom bliss,


But that can't happen - ever.

The heavy hours creep slowly by.
I do not live, I cannot die.
I have no tears, but I must cry.
The only thing I want is Kai.


The only thing I want is Kai.

I will love him forever.

790 - Self-pity (A Sonnet - sort of...)

Oh miserable love, oh longing unfulfilled,
Desire unquenched, tears that can't be spilled!
Oh - throbbing lust in cage of metal lock'd
Forever burning, by fate and Tweedle mock'd!

In all my fiery love I've always been alone!
Oh why, merciless fate, can't my heart turn to stone?
Hate and love within me burn like fire and ice --
Why can't I look at once with impassive eyes...?

I'm so full of feelings and so devoid of form!
My prospects so hopeless, my life so forlorn...

I'm so full of hate - how bites and hurts its chill --
What the point of hate is when one cannot kill?

I'm so full of love and so devoid of luck --
What the point of love is, when you cannot fuck...

Hi jerhume!

 

i don't think you wrote bad poetry!

i liked what you posted.

want to read some BAD poetry?

hee hee

 

then take a look at this:

Doggerel for the Dead

Your love had wings,
not tapered feathered things:
but gossamer veils of light,
proton bursts, electric sizzles, piercing bright.

Hidden coy face,
could feel your free heart race
when your wings caressed my soul
lifting love, lifting joy, out of that deep hole.

Between the dark
and the dawn, your flash mark
burned, hot, into my flesh,
never touching, now yearning, never to mesh.

Fear would keep you
high aloft; only he knew
your intimate folds, sweet one
I would heal the wounds that to your wings were done.

The one who held
you fast, I curse, the weld
he fashioned to your kind heart
and made you believe you would never be apart.

Let me, not him,
run a hand up your shin.
My tongue to outline your lips,
my lips down your back, 'round your side, 'tween your legs.

To love and guide:
gifts for him? Do not hide:
to nourish and protect? Dear
one, he took your lucent soul to rend a shear.

Unknown, sweet pet,
to you, the trap he set.
Lovely, trusting, little ray,
he promised love: the rope, the chain, locked you away.

Your love had wings
now bled dry. Darkness sings--
"Triumph!". You, abandoned, were
inconsolable. Oh, that harsh rotten cur.

My heart would burst
open to quench your thirst.
Would that Fate had chosen you for
me. Sorrow, I feel, your white light shines no more.

No time to heal:
me, too late; you, his meal.
Teeth sunk in, spirit torn, escape
you could not. What's left now? The death shroud to drape?

Time, make things new
so she could sip the dew
of my desire, passion, and love.
Come back. I ache. Come back you soft shining dove.

Drop the empty cup
find a sword to take up,
I would. Then lop off his head.
When asked, "Who you?"; "Justice", would be all I said.

Your love had wings
not tapered, feathered things
nor skin or scale; something bright
flutters now in the stars: won't forget your light.

Promise.

there once was a robot head 790,

he wanted to jump Xevs behiney,

he fell off the bridge, smashed to tinys

Kai fixed him, but now

he thinks hes got a V-giney.

What’ya know, i got around to it after all. It's not the first person poem i wanted to do, but w/ my time constraints - it works. :) 

790 but a head?

Oh there’s so much more,

Beyond the robot dementia and drooling circuits,

There’s a girl that just wants to be loved, caressed - and occasionally fondled,

A girl that goes after what she wants and doesn't take no for an answer,

This girl is so much more than her metal casing,

This girl, wants to get bounced up and down and thrown off a bridge! 

Possibly quirky, possibly horrible - either way, not bad for my first poem in ages - especially since 790 only rhymes w/ 7 monkies! 
:P
