Sonnet debate

philosphical
Danielle

For anyone who doesn't know what a sonnet is: There are three traditional forms of sonnets, rather there are two and a variant that makes the third and has commonly come to be accepted as a third form. First it is important to point out that a sonnet is a lyric poem with a topic that is of a more romantic bent. The form of a sonnet is in its name which is derived from Italian, sonnet, and Occitan, sonnet, both meaning literally little song. There is the Italian sonnet, and the Shakespea...

genericUSER
mongeese

The war in china is completely ridiculous. The U.S. needs to pull out their troops from Nanjing. If we don't then it could result in World War II part B! Just last year there was a similar conflict between Mesopitamia and Prussia. It resulted in ethnic cleansing of all the Aryians. According to prophecy, Kurt Vonnegut was born in blood to a german english dictionary. Therefore Neil Patrick Harris has the sorcerer's stone. I thank my opponent and await their response....

The best musical instrument is the piano.

Kierkegaard
Amos

There are many musical instruments, each of them with their particular perks and letdowns, but all of them simply fall short when in comparison to the piano. I have several reasons as to why this is true. First, the piano requires not only the most talent (both musical AND physical) but the most effort as well to successfully play it well. Another reason is that you can do more with the piano than any other instrument. With instruments like the cello, viola, electric guitar, etc, you...
