In my opinion, poetry was better in the days of Beowulf, when alliteration superseded rhyme. Hence, I am starting an alliteration thread. Excluding this first paragraph, all posts should have no more than three non-alliterating syllables between alliterating syllables. Alliterating syllables should preferably be accented. Consonant sounds may, of course, alternate, as in "love is perfect; lust deplorable," wherein "love" alliterates with "lust" and "perfect" alliterates with "-plorable." Alternatively, go for the V for Vendetta style, wherein syllables within words don't count--every alliterating word has to begin with the same syllable.

This torpid thread, listless, lifeless, dead, did fall, I think, a victim of timidity--for why else would those frequenting these forums eschew replying rapidly to that challenge I put forth?

More success would be seen if this thread did dub itself the "Recall the Past" thread, methinks.

I did indeed mention Beowulf, but, methinks, my mention of V for Vendetta makes up for that.

Sorry, I stupidly mistook "did dub" for "didn't dub."

Let's see if this looks any better under the code tag.

Alas, all seem swiftly to turn from fearless brave Batman, the Caped Crusader's challenge - chide, I insist! Chide chiu!

(Yes, I did have to use a smattering of Esperanto at the end just to make it fit. What of it?)

Chenjesu, consider carefully: thou'rt chidden.

(I like how the filtered version of Batman, the Caped Crusader still fits within the constraint. Also, I was going to mention it earlier, but decided to let it slide, so thanks, MH, for keeping this thread under control.)

perhaps the past poses a problem, which, when the thread took the title of "Speakest such that thou appear as a flowery flashback" , it died drearily.
