    LINE LIMIT: Minimum of 16 lines, Maximum of 64
    ** NO RECYCLING, NO EXCEPTIONS **
    • Recycling is the equivalent to that of a no-show and will be treated as such, thus resulting in a loss in favor of the participant whom chose to recycle and a win in favor of his/her opponent
    • Extensions may only be granted if a moderator has given consent prior to a verse being posted in the match OR your opponent gives his consent
    • If granted, the extension will override deadline for both participants extending it for no more than 24 hours
    • CHECK-INS are encouraged, but not required
    • Verses MUST incorporate AT LEAST 1 of the provided topics

    • A Championship Title WILL NOT be decided by way of no-show!!!
    • If an opponent fails to show in a Championship match, the remaining participant will be ranked as the number 1 seed, but will not be considered a Champion until a win by vote
    • Upon your second no show, you will be suspended for two weeks of competition. A third no show will result in a three week suspension and a fourth will result in a suspension for the remainder of the season. There is no suspension for first time no showers.

    Since I don't want to no-show, here's something. Topic= Yesterday's Unknown

    I used to be quite brash with a slight dash of asshole behavior
    My friends and I tormented everyone, especially fat old Xavier
    He was an old man we all thought we were better than
    Just another one of World War II’s forgotten veterans
    He had been to the shores of Iwo Jima and had fought at Okinawa
    Then came home with a troubled mind, finding it hard holding down a
    Steady job, and competing with the petty mob
    Trying to fit in with the average Joes and every Bob
    We had lived in the town our whole lives
    And saw him on the beach on sunny days and cold nights
    He’d pick up starfish one by one, then throw them out to sea
    He did this every day; his sanity was so in doubt to me
    He never had a family; he never had a wife and kids
    He just squeaked by on menial jobs; such a demeaning life to live
    We would hang out on the beach, sometimes get liquored up
    Fat old Xavier would go walking by and we would figure what
    The hell, and we’d go push him around and call him names
    He was a thrall to shame; it was good fun for us, it all was games
    We picked on him because he was different and weak
    And not once did he retaliate; he didn’t even speak
    He’d just go about his business returning starfish back to their homes
    And no change was made until one day I acted alone
    I sat there stewing over a girlfriend who had decided to split
    Listening to the waves as I chewed on the side of my lip
    Then along came Xavier ready to start his daily task
    I watched at first, then approached with anger I could barely mask
    I dared to slap a starfish out of his hand, and then began taunting him
    About his uselessness and the memories that had to be haunting him
    “Why are you here every day? Why did you start this?
    Don’t you know in the sea there are millions of starfish?
    You won’t make a difference. What would give you that notion?”
    He picked the starfish back up, stared at it and tossed it into the ocean
    Then he did something he had never done and I was taken aback some
    He looked me deep in the eyes and said, “It makes a difference to that one.”
    Then he walked away to be the starfish’ last and only savior
    My eyes were opened that day and I owe it all to fat old Xavier

    Corm wins via no-show.

    Make you votes, following the rules, with your links being posted in the sticky thread, or forfeit the win.

    Corm fails to vote and post links. Win not obtained.
