Well that got your attentions.  

anyway, I hit upon this idea, maybe crazy but the challenge is for four poets from any forum to write a poem together. That simple. Results can be posted in Pub corner

A few rules though

1.there has to be 4 people, 2 male 2 female

2. Whoever writes the first line has to write the fifth line. Whoever writes the second line has to write the sixth line and so one. There is proabably a better way of saying this.

3. The poem should be at least 20 lines long, any style. That is for the poets to decide.

4. Have fun, try to mix with people outside the forum where you mainly post.

5. I need 1 male and two females for a foursome myself. Anyone interested e-mail me at lost_boy_zero@hotmail.com

Actually here is an idea, how about we make a list
first, so people interested sign your names below so other poets can contact and arrange to join your group.  


Best of luck with the challenge.

Well looks like we have our first foursome group. The poets are:

Lady lost
Monqiue
Dennis L. White
Myself.

So come on everyone else get together for more foursomes. Lets all make beautiful poetry together.

Hi there! I'm sort of new at this, but your challenge sounds interesting... that it is, if there are another 4 people who want to write a poem with me! I'll definitely read the first "foursome poem" to see how it turns out.

Ok I'm interested but... I don't if there'd be another three ppl willing to write with me. Timelines and all that.

Yes, I admit your general rule. That every poet is a fool:
But I myself may serve to show it. That every fool is not a poet.

This sound interesting.  This could be my poetical debut into this.  I have been hanging around the alley and feelings and have yet to write an actual poem.  Count me in, if you dare...

Hi Guys wow thanks to whoever dug this one up, alas I wouldn't be able to take part in this foursome as I have making holiday plans and also a few poetic projects with some other poets lined up or in progress, I am however eagerly awaiting the results. remember the challenge is to work as a team and have fun.

Uh-oh! We have a bizzare number of people who want to be in a group! What do we do now? All write together, or group up as well as we can? What would everyone like to do? I've never done this before, so I'm not sure myself. I think maybe over 4 people is too ideas many to handle at once, ("Too many cooks spoil the broth" and stuff) but we can always try.
