In Celebration and Anticipation of Amélie's Imminent Return,

I give you the 3rd (4th?) Semi-non-annual Amézon Poetry Slam


Rules:
- Your poem should be about Amelie in some way, shape or form
- You have until the end of the German Open in Berlin to enter
- You can enter as many times as you’d like
- You can write something along the lines of a bedtime story or short fairy tale if the rhyming bit throws you
- You can write your entry in any language you chose (just be aware the judges may not be able to read and appreciate your genius if you don't at least post a translation)
- Your cannot, however, be mean towards players or posters. God don’t like ugly and neither do I
- You cannot argue with the Judges, the Judges’ decisions are final.
- If you do argue with the Judges, you will be mocked excessively and for a good long time

Winner receives a commemorative coffee mug bearing the infamous shorts shot (see above). Please note that to claim your prize, you will have to provide me with a delivery address (can be yours or that of a poster willing to play go-between)

So - get ready, get revved up, and get those creative juices flowing :cool:

from Nicjac:

And you can even use the Elvis lyrics here, like Jailhouse Rock ...

Griffin threw a party, inviting us by mail.
Ame was guest of honour, and began to wail.
Best prize for singing solo, was a coffee mug
missclaret had some vodka to try out all her luck.

Let's sing, everybody, let's sing.
Everybody swing,
And roll out all the bling.
and
When you are old and gray and full of sleep
And nodding by the fire, take down this thread,
And slowly read, and dream of the soft look
Ame had once, and your lost Roland Garros v-bet

from ameliemomo:

"Oh Mélie"

Oh Mélie,si tu savais
Tout le mal que ça nous fait
de ne pas te voir te dépenser
Oh Mélie, si tu savais
on est vraiment desesperé
Mais on sait que tu vas revenir
et là tu vas tous les déchirer.

KJ2007:

I wondered lonely as a cloud,
through forums, chat rooms with no end,
and all at once I saw a crowd,
A host of Momosapiens!!!
and

Amelie why must you make us wait
we chew our nails and join debate,
so stop torturing us,
and win Roland Garros,
So that we can all celebrate!!!

Uuuuhh, another poetry slam on the way. :worship:

I got a question:

So we can use the genius of some other ... uhm ... poet or rock star to enhance our performance? No original work required?

If so, after trying out Elvis and Yeats (Re: Boring days), I think about using my fav outside the tennis world: Emé Dickinson.

For instance, with regard to the rules:

There's a certain Slant of light
Winter Afternoons -
That opresses, like the Heft
Of the Griffin rules.

Heavenly Hurt, it gives us -
but we will prevail,
just a one will get the mug,
the others need an ale.

This will be fun. Wait - I'll be travelling next week - I'll try to reach a computer anyway.

Of COURSE you can bastardize other people's poems and songs! Heck, you may even get points for knowing who you're bastardizing :)

Sometimes easy, sometimes rough,
being a fan can be tough,
but here we are still to support,
her in the game out on the court.

So painful then to watch her choke,
and in GM a running joke,
but thankfully it didn’t last,
and that is all now in the past.

The YEC bought us the day,
she cast her demons far away,
showed us the champ we always saw,
& showed her rivals to the door! :p

Such elegance, such clever play,
she wins her games with no delay,
And for her passion, skills, and fight,
she has now been made a knight!

Us, her fans we are so proud,
and you will hear us in the crowd,
forever now our chant will be…,
“Allez, allez, Amélie!”

Hey Griff, who are the judges of this competition ??? :)
In theory, Yaz, Ceze and Sonja get to vote (as do my dogs - I will read them some of the entries, and the more their tails wag, the more points you get).

In practice, like most American's I only appreciate "democracy" when it produces the result I want :p
