When there’s talk of Competition I REFUSE to be Impotent

Being Stenotopic's for Insects, Survival is Imminent.

Options express an infinite

Range of Emotions

My Position is

I Piston drive, Incite, imaginative Motion.

Those holding me in Contempt complain, saying, that I don’t play nice.

I’m a soaring dragon, I don’t flock with those titmice.

Some take Notice

Of my Semiotic Poeticism

As my voice will Sopite the masses

Not Septic, but a shock to their Systems, Stretching across all the classes.

A Balanced Isotonic solution Permeating Your Membrane

As my Osmotic rhythm's Permeating In Your Brain.

Nepotistic worshippers bestow their Totems a victory

I'm no Spittoon, they're not Immune

When they Incept my true Symphony.

Not guaranteed to win, I know I'm up against odds

When rivals masterfully create the thumbprints of gods.

So, I must ascend to their level

Thus, master my devils.

    This slaps, hits hard and flows amazingly. Love how it feels like a rap or a rousing victory march chant. Well done on placing...not surprised.

    Ex-cel-lent! Bravo! I am super impressed with your work. It flows easily; I found it hard not to sound stilted when I wrote mine. I love the foot at the end, the Gods' thumbprint. Good luck!

    Not only did this have a very competitive feel, but then you went and added some nerd words and ideas, isotonic and osmotic...Loved this so much!!

  • Impressive entry! ‘ As my voice will Sopite the masses Not Septic, but a shock to their Systems, Stretching across all the classes.’ The things I’m learning on Vocal!😵‍💫 Had to look up sopite 🤣

    Had to look a few of these words up. Sopite. Which then I felt daft for not deducing. On another note, I cant remember the last time I saw titmouse. What a fantastic name.

    "Those holding me in Contempt complain, saying, that I don’t play nice. I’m a soaring dragon, I don’t flock with those titmice." These were my favourite lines! Also, not me thinking titmice were mice in between tits 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣
