Poetry Contest

Write a poem as a Conspiracy Whistle-Blower taking the Witness Stand
There's so much trickery and lies in this world, ranging from all walks of life. From businesses to politics, from a disgruntled employee to a revenge-seeking victim....there's conspiracy all around us!

Pretend you have been summoned to court to take the Witness Stand in regards to a "Conspiracy" Case you EYE-WITNESSED yourself.

1).  Make/State the "conspiracy case" clear in your poem.

2).  Detail how you knew "the case" was a "conspiracy" in your poem.

3). Give your BEST argument and convince your readers your case was,    indeed, a CONSPIRACY against YOU or SOMEONE ELSE....

4). Stick with your WITNESS STAND ARGUMENT ONLY...Details of what the courtroom smelled like, looked like, made you feel, etc. is NOT relevant in this comp!

5). You may want to start off with a very brief introduction of your disposition as a witness: Describing VERY briefly where you were and how you became an EYE-WITNESS.

Comp Guidelines:
1). FREE-style and rhyme poetry welcomed; NO EXTENSIVELY LENGTHY POEMS....VOID sectional poems...
2). One (1) Maximum submission allowed.
3). No maximum word-count, but PLEASE NOT TOO LENGTHY...
4). Comp winner will be determined by host (NOT UP FOR PUBLIC VOTE).
5). Anyone need more time than 2 weeks? Let me know!!

Sample of my FICTIONAL Case is below....This is FICTIONAL.....

If you can’t hear them,  
Call it hallucinations.  
Diagnose those who do hear  
the voice of the underworld  
As schizos and psychos  
Simply based on the fact  
You can’t hear what they hear….  
So, no one will know what we know....  

Those who do hear voices of the underworld  
Know that, only because not everyone hears,  
Does not mean the voices are NOT real…  
Because the voices of the underworld  
Are MORE than just REAL….  
 
As the light knoweth not all things of the underworld  
So does the dark not understand the things of the light.  
When facing each other’s world, one does not  
Understand the other….  
 
Yet, when a saint sayeth, “The Lord spoke to me,”  
Everyone hearkens to listen  
And they call it Divine Revelation.  
Yet, when those who hear the dark speak,  
And says, “The voices of the underworld speak to me,”  
Everyone panics because it's coming from the underworld;  
So our job is to lay that listener down,  
And we do by burying him with countless pills  
Hoping he slumbers ‘til the day he dies…  
For he is like punished and accursed to all….  
 
Docs and psychiatrists, alike, we all suppress the truth  
For our money lies on those we diagnose,  
Whether legitimately or falsely  
Our greed reaches the heavens!  
We are money-driven..not people-caring!!!  
 
So, though we know the truth  
We are to turn to those concerned awaiting outside our office doors  
And we shall tell them  
“He’s gone mad! Schizophrenic and psychotic man he is!  
But, no worries! He will be of NO trouble at all…  
As long as he takes doses of pills  
And visits me weekly for talk therapy.”  
 
Then, the resident muttered under his breath,  
“For we shall silently kill him under pills  
So that he speaketh NOT anymore!”  
 
Then, they exchanged eye-glances,  
As if making a pact to hold-fast
the secret that their newly-diagnosed patient  
Was NOT a psycho at all!  
 

When they exchanged glances, the corner of the resident's lip  
Slightly and discreetly curled with a smirk  
And the doctor placed his pointed finger over his mouth  
And lightly let out a  
“Shhhh!”  
Coming closer to the resident he had exchanged glances with,
He softly said to him, as if no one else could hear,  
“Let our NEW money-maker sleeeeep and dreeaaammmm his life away.  
And let this secret NEVER leak-out  
from either one of our locked lips!”

Think this covers the comp guidelines....:)

I Refuse Your Declaration !

Why Should You Be Called A Worship Or Your Honor

When To Me Your Are Just Some Judicial Bloody Horror

I Refuse Your Declaration Of Any Way You Say It Must Be

Cause To Me That Is Another Great Legal Conspiracy

Some Take Me Down Cause I Speak The Truth Reality

It Is On Court Documents I Am One Sent As A Revolutionary

Contrary To Your All Arbitrary Decisions And Commentary

Because I Know The Real Code Under What You Live By

And With Your Outcry You Rely , Expect Me To Just Comply

Bow Down To A Judging God And Jury You Shall Just Get My Fury

 Mess With Me And You Deserve All You Will Get And You Will Regret

Trying To Program Or Upset By Your Demand My Own Mindset

And I Shall Reveal What You Want Concealed This Public Scam

To Make Us Your Puppets , Not Interrupt It , Some Final Plan !


Go Ahead , With Your Conspiracy , Try And Challenge Me !

against me, thug Witness ``G``


Day 0 … death sentence
             imposed
                body sent
                to decompose
                write thy will
                in a poetry of prose

Day 1 … talked to my lady,
                sorry, baby
                next time maybe
                I'll let you
                save me
                now take off
                your clothes
                and come lay with me

Day 2 … brand new day
                beautiful mornin'
                called the Shark
                for some serious stacks
                threw down on a fat Bookie
                just to lose it all
                like a rookie
                now they're comin' for me          
                
Day 3 … fled the city overnight
                took a quick flight
                out to Vegas
                where I hadn't been in ages
                ladies looked the same
                hustlers were a given
                I clocked my watch
                4 days 'til death row prison
                soon the sun will be a'risen

Day 4 … rose with a buffet of women
                dirty sheets, used condoms
                and coke that made my eyes choke
                with tears slowly settlin' in
                poured me another tonic & gin
                looked in the mirror with a
                wicked grin 'cause I was in
                the city without pity & sin;
                it was time to bust heads again

Day 5 … snortin' massive lines of blow
                I sunk to an all-time low
                called up some ruthless friends
                to do a little diggin', ring, ring
                yo, we got that 411 on that thing
                took a flight out to L.A.
                paid a visit to the D.A.
                'cause tomorrow was goin' to be
                a good day with the next two after that
                'cause this motherfucker wasn't goin' back!

Day 6 … spent the next day rollin' on the streets,
                strikin' up deals under ammo
                and pimped out wheels
                causin' all kinds of heat
                that not even the cops could beat me
                chasin' ghosts, killin' hosts
                the city droppin' like flies 'cause
                what they thought they had on me
                was nothin' but smiles & cries & lies

Day 7 … Sorry, your Honor,
                but we need to renegotiate
                the motion,
                the client was found
                at the bottom of the ocean,
                somber, anger, skepticism
                filled the room,
                filled the people,
                filled the air
                no death chair
                no front row seats
                it was just sheer defeat
                'cause it was all laced
                beneath a conspiracy case
                against me, thug witness G,
                me against the Boss, Mr. Ross
                killer in the 1st degree

Day 0 … 6 months later
                called the D.A.
                from somewhere
                down in the Keys
                hello, she says
                this time, baby,
                I let you
                save me
                so hop on the jet
                ‘cause this here shit
                has just gone legit!
