Rokkenjima Festival of Mayhem - Event: 07th Poetry

Already at the semifinal day! Time really does fly, doesn’t it? Well we’re not done yet!

07th Poetry

For this challenge we want you to write a poem, from the first person perspective of a 07th character in any scene or context you want. The context and speaking character should be recognizable, but feel free to clarify it with a comment in your submission. As for what kind of poem… entirely up to you! Just don’t go overboard on the length~

4 points for first, 3 for second, 2 for third and fourth, and 1 for late submissions. As always.

Please get your submission in by Saturday, 11:30 am UTC. Hope to see some of your slumbering poetic writing skills~
