Alright, here to post..


AND NOW FOR THE FIRST DUEL OF COLOSSEUM IV!!!


And in the far corner, a relative newcomer to the colosseum, she can dish out a hyperactive beating at the hands of a King - or rather, a Caffienated Wooping by a Whopper! We have our defender,

We have Woop!


User Image


And in the near corner, we have a seasoned colosseum vet you all know and love (whether you want to admit it or not), and while he's a Zero, don't underestimate him, he's no coke! We have our challenger,

We have Zero!


User Image

They will be dueling using the free verse and rhyming styles, on the subject of time, for the wager of 1,000 gold.

Are you reaaaady? Good, because now for the moment we have all been waiting for...

Hehehe!
Wundabah!
My poem FTF instead of FTW lol
Challenger: Zero
Defender: Whoppers
Bet: 1K
Judge: knight_of_chivalry
Type of Duel: Regular
Subject: Time
Style/Form I prefer: Free verse and Rhyming


Time
Is the only honest thing that we know that is also a lie
A word and I am nine
We are the closest when we are apart
All that is keeping us is the minutes of the clock
It has no keeper, but it holds us in its hands
Looking back, I see that girl
What would she have done in a different era
What would she have had to prove in a different matter?

Sitting back, watching as it all goes by
Growing up I am now twenty nine
It has never been the be all or end all
However we keep running, we keep chasing.
Trying to grow, trying to be her for you
I didn’t know, but now I do
Innocence, swept away in the currents

Twighlight are the years that come
A new generation has been born
The years roll by and you hear time sigh
All you want to do is rest, knowing you have done your best
Now another little girl is playing with a strand of pearls
To what will be of her? To what will be of her future
The hand ticks forward, grasping the ends
Time is the only honest thing that we know is also a lie
Very nice!

For future reference, everyone posting a Duel piece needs to include all of the Duel information, such as:
