A Golden Apple will be presented to the best poem, the subject is God( belief or disbelief) and the form is a 14 line sonnet. You must use the rhyming end words but in any order and the end words come from Shakespeare's sonnet " When forty winters shall besiege thy brow".

brow, now, field, held, lies, eyes, days, praise, use, excuse, mine, thine, old cold.

The judges decision will be final.

I think mine is better, Simon. Yours doesn't even rhyme and doesn't even have a rhythm.

Are you drinking? Because I think you shouldn't drink and rhyme....you might produce rap and then all hell will break loose. :)

Neither of them are 14 line sonnets, to be fair.

Sorry Tosh, we don't seem to be taking this topic seriously. How about -

There was an old woman called god
Who used to feel terribly odd.
Then She had a plan
To dress as a man
And beat everyone with a rod.

Happy New Year!

While we're on the subject:

God, A Poem

A nasty surprise in a sandwich,
A drawing-pin caught in your sock,
The limpest of shakes from a hand which
You'd thought would be firm as a rock,

A serious mistake in a nightie,
A grave disappointment all round
Is all that you'll get from th'Almighty,
Is all that you'll get underground.

Oh he said: 'If you lay off the crumpet
I'll see you alright in the end.
Just hang on until the last trumpet.
Have faith in me, chum-I'm your friend.'

But if you remind him, he'll tell you:
'I'm sorry, I must have been p****d-
Though your name rings a sort of a bell. You
Should have guessed that I do not exist.

'I didn't exist at Creation,
I didn't exist at the Flood,
And I won't be around for Salvation
To sort out the sheep from the cud-

'Or whatever the phrase is. The fact is
In soteriological terms
I'm a crude existential malpractice
And you are a diet of worms.

'You're a nasty surprise in a sandwich.
You're a drawing-pin caught in my sock.
You're the limpest of shakes from a hand which
I'd have thought would be firm as a rock,

'You're a serious mistake in a nightie,
You're a grave disappointment all round-
That's all you are, ' says th'Almighty,
'And that's all that you'll be underground.'
