It's fun to speak in iambs, don't you think?
This thread is for conversing in the form
of Shakespeare's plays: it's blank verse.
In case you didn't notice, rhyming is
not necessary for this type of verse.

I must admit I'm quite dismayed by such
a lack of int'rest shown for this constraint...

Does no one wish to play my little game?
It's really not that hard to write this way...

Or is it not the difficulty but
some other thing that causes lack of posts?

Well, I had not discovered this here thread,
until a yellow icon made me look,
and pushed me towards the doing of this thing.

Iambs repeated five times are quite cool,
and I have even seen a comic done
in this pentameter's cool metrical
a pattern even held in dialog

Alas I fear my thread has died again;
in vain I've sought to bring it back to life.
The Bard would be displeased, I think, with such
a poor display of sporting spirit; we
must seek to change this dire circumstance.

I thus propose a philosophical
debate, upon the issue of religion
(the same as I put forth in "Lipogram"):
Would you concur with my opinion that
religion cannot shape morality
but must conform to inner values held
within the soul or mind forever, thus
unchang'd by any outside force? That Man
would even dare to stand against a God
should he perceive said deity to be
a force of Evil, though divine?

The way i see it is often such
From an aliens perspective on travels
He gets told of our beliefs, having none himself
but cannot understand how humanity is wrong
For even if 1 religion is correct
Humanity is judged as a whole

I am amazed--that bot did come quite close
to following our chosen metric scheme.

Would all you worthy gents (and gals) agree
that if there is a God from whom the great
expanse of space and time did spring, outside
of whom no man, no thought, yea nothing could
exist--for such a viewpoint is indeed
held true by many people in this world--
then God could not be good but merely be?
What would it mean to say that God is "good"
except to say that God is merely--God?

But what if God determined what is good?
And told it to us all so we would know.
What if he shared morality with us,
then wouldn't that mean he was truly good?

I understand your point, I really do,
but I must disagree in every way.
As far as I can see, if there is God,
then he is why we have both bad and good.

If he's the source of our morality,
then he must be the perfect example!

He could just be a fucking hypocrite
A being whose words and deeds do not match up
And such you see the source of those beliefs
That paint the god of Old as being bad

But such the Church declared them heresies
And seeked to see opinions blotted out
Perhaps if they had not been so uptight,
The world's opinions then would be more bright

But as for God himself, I'm not so sure,
I guess I'll see sometime once I leave life,
And see the pathways where I will depart,
But then I'll be denied from talking out.

If God determines good and evil, then
to say that God is "good" is just to say
that God is God--thus we define this "God."
Without some outside source of "good" and "bad"
God is not good nor bad, he simply IS.
But if there is an outside source of "goodness,"
is not that source of goodness, then, divine?
Yet still this "source" could not itself be good--
against itself alone could it be judged, and this
is insufficient. It could only Be.

And William, do not think that Gate is closed
to you for what you say--I've heard it said
that those men who like Abraham did dare
to challenge God, to stand up for the people
are even more respected than the men
like Noah who stood by and watched while God
did flood the world in wrath against our sins.

Are you referring to our tendency
to speak in iambs, like the thread requests,
instead of your apparent preference
for Trochees, which are also cool, but not
the subject of this thread (for this is blank verse)?

I'd like to take a moment now to thank
the one who did resuscitate the game
of Poison Bloodstream--now a cheer to him,
dear chen', to whom we owe "The Blood's Vengeance."

No problem. I appreciate your thanks;

Who made the forum from which wellspring borne
The famous Poisoned Stream. A great, good game.

At least it wrote its spam in five whole parts,
And thus show'd some commitment to the cause
Of 'pent'; but ah! the rest of post was not
Quite bearing out the hopes we all did share
When first we saw the number five was there
(Assume, I do, that you all thought like me)
Alas! Alas! Eheu! Alas! Alas!
