So basically my opponent will accept the debate. Then I will post a poem, and the he/she will poem and then in the next round we will both explain the poem. And afterwards people vote on the poem they like the most. I realize voting will be hard given that there will probably be no sources, or arguments; so i wish the voters and my opponent good luck.

I guess I will post my poem in the hope that my opponent posts his soon.

Carousel:

Carousel, Carousel
We go round and round
Round and round
Round and round again
In our endless macabre dance
Your brightly painted horses smile at me
Distorted and sinister they mock me
I ride them to the edge and back round again
Oh won't you tell them to halt?
You've made me so dizzy and sick
Shall I ride til my death?
Or will the ride itself cause it
When I crumple in exhaustion
And can no longer mount the horse again
Do your malicious dance, Carousel
I will dance til I die

Here is my poem.

I am nobody.
Nobody is perfect.
Therefore, I am perfect.

Perhaps the style/length/subject matter of the poems could have been discussed or agreed upon?

Reasons for voting decision: It is quite obvious. Willoweed deactivated his account for some reason and thus could not reply to Rogue's rather good "Carouse" poem...nor challenge the vivid imagery of a narrator on a carouse, with a painted horse before him/her, that spins to eternity (?)....
