The Ballad of Forum Seven

Postby Insulamia » Sat Mar 19, 2022 6:37 pm

Hello Forum 7. Let's write a poem. If we can.
Read the rules very carefully before posting; I don't trust that F7ers will always follow the rules of a post. For this one, it is especially important that you follow the rules to keep the poem sounding alright.

Rules:

  1. Write one line per post.
  2. The poem must rhyme.
    The last sound of your post must be the same as (or at least similar to) the last sound as the above post, unless the above-above post already rhymes with the above post.
  3. There will be an AABB rhyming scheme, so the rhyme will alternate every two posts.
    Look at the two above posts. Do they rhyme? If so, you can make a new rhyme. If not, you must make your line rhyme with the above post.
  4. Each of your lines must have around 12 syllables.
    It doesn't have to be exact, but aim for about this length. I recommend you read the above post out loud and then your post to see if it sounds 'poem-ish'.
  5. The poem can be about whatever you want.
    Lines don't have to relate to each other; they can be complete nonsense, even. Just be sure to make them rhyme.

Examples:
Republic of Cebu wrote:Banana banana banana, banana banana
Henria wrote:I wish to overthrow the regime in La Habana.
Girtischia wrote:What on earth would you get if you combined pens, pineapples and apples?
Wiristan wrote:I really do not think anyone will care 'bout these examples.
New Jersey United Empire wrote:New jersey is much better than stinky poop new York
Chungustan- wrote:You shall be sent to Haram jail if you consume pork!


Some notes:
  • Despite the name, this is not meant to be a ballad. It just sounded cool as a title.
  • I wanted to make it rhyme because 1. it sounds cool and 2. to create some cohesion between posts; one of the best things about F7 for me is the interaction between posts, this is removed when you don't have to relate your post to the above post. I think.
  • I have a very specific rhyming pattern because I do not trust F7ers to make their own rhyming schemes and succeed. Please follow this scheme or I believe the thread will get too confusing and intimidating for people to participate.
  • Feel free to put a /stillme if someone doesn't rhyme your post.
  • I might edit this to add some more notes later.

With that said, I'll start.

A civilization born from a war of Independence in the 1700s which exerted its influence over the world via diplomacy, economics, and military might.
A population of 672.9 million Citizens who enjoy one of the highest standards of living in the world backed by a strong economy which had seen a recent economic crisis solved by government intervention.

dumbass who got the internet one day, Seals are the best animals and you can’t convince me otherwise. I hate anime, And dinosaurs are super cool :7 my favourite is Allosaurus/Apatosaurus who both lived in the Jurassic! I’m going to make this a dino area now because I’m fucking stupid. Did you know that Cryolophosaurus is one of the largest Antarctic dinosaurs. Some say that the Spinosaurus’s new look is dumb but you are wrong, I actually like it more! And no it wasn’t a quadruped.
