Hello My names Brian,
On me you'll be relying,
As the winner of this debate,
Unless somehow I've met my fate,

I usually have rules,
So all the ignorant fools,
Will not make stupid claims,
There are quite a list of names.

So I am open to discuss,
Anything to cause a fuss,
In this debate I wish to see,
Someone as good as me.


Haiku, limerick, sonnet.
Have a good debate.

There one was a boy of seventeen,
Whose ego was wholly obscene.
His rhymes were so weak;
They begged for critique -
They"re even worse than Silverstein.

When I first read this poem solemnly,
I remembered my seventh grade class work.
To think that it should lack such quality,
Would surely make any sane man berserk.
Sure, I"ll admit I"m not the best either,
But at least I don"t use free verse cheaply.
Thought and work " your poem conveys neither,
It demonstrates failure so completely.
If you"re to prove you can win this debate,
(Which, I honestly doubt that you can do)
At the very least give your words some weight;
Get rid of that frivolous residue.
I gladly anticipate your response "
Please do show a little less nonchalance.
Debate Round No. 1


Is that all your going to write?
Come on I wanted a fight!
SO it's time to see what you wrote,
(I believe you should try and make note.)

Your rhyme scheme is not even okay,
Rhythm could use a lot of work.
To learn from this you just may,
Find out how to not be a jerk.

The length doesn't matter,
Your rhymes they all splatter,
Like constant squirrel chatter,
And uncontrolled bladder.

Is your first line introduction?
For that it doesn't function.
I wish you could know,
How much your rhymes blow.

Your rhymes they don't make sense,
They can't even be called rhymes,
The errors they are immense,
On poetry these are crimes.

I wouldn't pay for what you write,
Even to read it without light,
But wait pay I just might,
If you keep it out of sight.

Hopefully you get better,
Not act like a stuffed sweater,
Old and in the attic,
While I live on the paddock,

Where the nice green grass grows,
And the wind over me blows,
While you get all fusty,
and also really dusty.

SO here I am kid,
Show me a good round
Argue I did,
Now try to make a sound.

Well I see you forfeited your turn,
Why you did such I have yet to learn,
Hopefully a good reason you certainly must have,
Because whenever a forfeit happens it makes me so mad.

SO I extend my round,
Until you are found,
Debating against me,
I look forward to what I'll see.

Debate Round No. 3


Well oh my this is so unexpected,
Is he dead or is his sinus infected?
I'm afraid we won't know,
Until his face doth show,
But I'm mad this debate is neglected.

So I'll extend again I guess,
Disappointed I am I'll confess,
For this should be a grand debate,
Where you'll see my opponent meet his fate.
Where I show you he is such a mess.

Debate Round No. 4


In conclusion this debate now ended,
The rules have been quite bended,
So the vote should be obvious so,
(You notice how untimely my foe),
So in conclusion, Vote Pro!

Lol. Complex in a similar way as how complex the invisible man is.

Honestly, I like the way con rhymed the word "round" *between* rounds. Rhyming between rounds is something pro never did.

Observe, when I put the applicable lines together into a single stanza:

"hidude45454 forfeited this round.
hidude45454 forfeited this round.
hidude45454 forfeited this round.
hidude45454 forfeited this round."

The meter is in fact even between these lines as well, . His poetic skill, in my opinion, is unmatched.

After a brief scansion, I would say this is likely the desired meter:

" H8; " H8; " H8; " " H8; " H8; "
hi - dude - four - five - four - five - four [light and momentary pause] for - feit - ed this round.

Each line is separated into two parts, a set of three trochees and a spare stressed syllable, and a set of two trochees and a spare stressed syllable. These stressed syllables highlight the masculine rhyme, both between the pair of words "round" and "round" and the mid-line pair "four" and "four."

Perhaps, in this case, less is more. The repetition of certain words within those lines, e.g., "45" and later in the same line "45" again, followed later by "4" (line 1 of the combined stanza), as well as the repetition between lines, e.g., "forfeited" (line 1) and "forfeited" (line 2).

In conclusion, I would petition that con wins this debate by virtue of the complexity of his poetry.

Uh...for whatever reason when I copy-pasted from Word, my dashes and apostrophes were converted into quotation marks :P
Posted by hidude45454 9 months ago
I would be interested in participating; maybe I would do a sonnet or something :)

High rate?...ughhh dude...It's not quantity that matters but quality. I can produce that, my brotha. I'm willing to accept your challenge, and duel you with my awesome arsenal of poetry.

High rate? That's what Goliath said, bro.
But your demise
is just a stone's throw away, yo.

Jk jk haha Alright buddy keep in touch :)
Posted by Briannj17 9 months ago
I'm sorry Persian immortal your not of high rate,
Therefore with you I'd rather not debate.
But I'll keep you in mind,
If you only I find,
Wants to accept this debate,
With you I'll negate.
