    Guys I was running a poem competition in Side and to be fair there are a few who have come up with some interesting little ditty's there but I'm now going to open this up to everyone and repost here. Anyone who posted in Side can transfer it here if they wish.
    Be adventurous and have a go - the subject can be about anything but it has to be original. Grep related is good - a limerick about your favourite enemy is pretty easy - an epic poem about your world maybe a bit harder.


    1st Great Land Expansion 100 x 3

    2nd Great Land Expansion 100 x 2

    3rd Great Land Expansion 100 x 1

    I’m going to give it a month - if you like something give it a like and we will take that into consideration when judging.

    I will start you off with the same one I used in side ................

    Some say Grep is for the addicts whose wives may only weep,
    Some say Grep is for the spammers who seek to steal your sleep,
    Some say Grep is for the richest with endless pockets deep,
    Mods say Grep is there for everyone as long as rules they keep.

    When your working day is over and the daylight's growing dim,
    When your homework is completed and your mum has just looked in,
    When your kids are sweetly sleeping and the baby bears a grin,
    Then open up your browser and plan your route to win.

    For the bravest and most active are the winners of renown,
    They use skill to take red cities but leave the little brown,
    With loyalty and honour they will tear your wonders down,
    And that my friends is how you win a Vict'ry and a Crown.

    Good luck

    This story begins with a world by the name of Side
    Warriors gathered far and wide, each so full of pride.
    Thinking with their premades they will have an easy ride to the biggest slice of the domination pie.

    Anarchaos to the north looking mighty fine not too many enemies will they find to stop their grind.
    Just to their south was The Commision ran by Mac nine, and on all around him he thought he could dine..
    After a sip or two of some wine, he called on his team, to begin pushing the front lines.
    To the North Mac said, it shall be devine!

    Stopped in their tracks by AC's greatest and best.
    Mac so confused, he didn't know what to do next.
    Shall we push west?

    No, lets go east!
    I do believe there is quite a feast
    Right there in the belly of those scrappy goat beasts.
    Mac and his team put on their cleats
    Dug into the earth, they ran full ahead not knowing they where yet again going to be beat.
    And, so it was, they where forced to take a seat!

    So early was their demise, that all around would have to arise,
    Take a look and you will realize, the maps are there for our eyes!
    From wars Mac n crew did not shy!
    But with greed and hunger, they tried to take on too much of the pie.

    Everyone all around knew their mistakes
    Hell, even Odin from their turtle shells jumped in like it was a free steak!
    And so what was once the commission, was now a flake..
    A team full of greats, reduced to a community plate.
    While all the killers jumped in and ate..
    Fiasco united decided to take in some of the fallen mates.

    That is the end to this short story,
    Although not at all the sum of all the wars and things that got gory.
    We will end here for the night, but do not worry,
    Another edition of Side is in our future, brewing down in the laboratory.
    Be patient and soon you will know of the glory!!

    Back in the days of ancient greece
    there was a world that knew no peace.
    with the speed of Side
    the competition was wide
    so He knew there were palms needing grease
    if his vision for glory
    were to be written into his story.

    So his admirals He gathered
    and his word they heard
    their promises He received
    and his plans He conceived
    for then the admirals were ordered.

    for they cure blunders
    AdmiralDee you go here
    AdmiralDumb you go there
    for this ain't wonders.

    when it looks like we're one
    we'll twist the tongue
    and play ignorance
    of this mergence
    as they must believe us!
    for we are me

    when the time had come
    for AdmiralDumb
    to go to war,
    he did his chore,
    and their battle cry was...

    My name is Burnbrae and I'm a Grepo addict

    I came to Side with no great expectations
    A gentle stroll without Grepo frustrations
    Now I've arrived I can see that's not true
    A world that is dominated by the notorious few

    The banter's the same "my Dad's bigger than yours"
    Bleating & ghosting while down on all fours
    Calling out players for cheating (so said)
    The ultimate end, all your troops are now dead!

    Alliances appear, new and old
    MRA's growing that inevitably fold
    Noobs to the left and noobs to the right
    Cities gifted over without any fight

    I say to myself, why the hell do I stay
    Pack up my cities and walk away
    Go back to RL where the humans exist
    Nah, just one more world, its too hard to resist

    Pollution of sounds, shouts
    An increasing sense of dispere
    Blows gently around the sunny bloody air
    in a pianful, ruthless afternoon

    Attack! Attack!
    Tears from the sky
    Just a chance for a last goodbye
    as unexpected as terrible among us

    The blow of a wall of swordsman
    -put out the sword- while
    leaving all toghether faces
    where orrible as sin
    Griffins are Flying

    This wrinkled defense
    against Huntress' sons
    -roaring furies-
    Is still alive in a cold bleeding tear

    and just a voice in the wind in night of wine
    could bring it back to us

    My realm is dark and veiled in mist,
    My heart untouched, my lips unkissed.
    Where is the one who holds the key?
    Who'll come and set my passions free?

    In dreams I search, by night I stalk
    The earthly plane where she must walk.
    I'll know the face; her lips beguile.
    Her eyes with fire will light her smile.

    With trembling heart must she begin
    The fearful journey deep within
    On this dark path where tears must fall
    To cleanse the soul, to breach the wall.

    Then I will speak to her of love
    And how I stole her from above
    To share the splendor here with me
    To love for all eternity.

    Immortal and strong, my love pure and dark,
    I offer my song, a gift from my heart.
    Now ends this wandering, safe from the light.
    Hail my Persephone, Queen of the night.

    Words I say don't always come out right,
    and they always seem to start a fight

    I know my spam hurts you,
    and believe me, I didn't mean to

    The last thing I want to see is HoB fade away
    because I used to spam you guys everyday

    I know all you want from me is distance,
    but right now I need a ww team so HoB stays in existence.

    Everything has happened so fast.
    How long before we leave the past in the past?

    HoB is falling apart.
    It's ripping my heart.

    I have so much anger built up; I have to get it out,
    and all I want to do is spam and pout.

    I used to take it out on you,
    even though I didn't mean to.

    I'm sorry for causing you more stress.
    I know even you legends need time to rest.
