The Rise Of The Yellow Turbans

Near Pu Yang, a tyrant was born
his faith to completely destroy the Allies was sworn

Raging like a mad wildfire
His heart had so much desire

To wipe out the Coalition in one grand sweep
He would leave all of their bodies in a terrible heap.

He went by the name Zhang Jiao, one evil and wicked man.
However, many knew all of things he said he would do, he can.

For in the pit of his stomach squatted a deep hatred of the Allies
Zhang wanted to squish them like flies.

And so after gaining a massive army, he found that his forces couldn't be stopped, he wanted to reach for his goal until he reached the top.

In the fall of 197, the first fight was fought
The Coalition was distraught at the hellacious massacre being brought.

For Zhang Jiao had terrorized and slaughtered towns.
It was easy to see his evil knew no bounds.

Once destroying the small sites, Zhang turned to Tian Zhi, where Wu happened to be.
Sadly, for Sun Jian, the tyrant's army he couldn't see.

Thus the fray ended in a grand killing, Jiao was more than willing. To obliterate the enemy in any way he could.
The Allies already knew that he would.

Pt. 2 Coming Soon! :D

nice job getting it into couplets! I know it must have taken some struggling to make the words rhyme where you wanted them to.

You are right, it was a challenge! i simplified it by using a simple word at the end of each sentence.

The fall of Shu

Upon the groves of the palace
Ladden with fruits and flowers and plenty
Upon the green fields and warm smiles
The fire quenched its thirst for glory

Once the city of groves sang in joy
An emperor resided in its boughs
Never has it seen such prosperity.

Now it has been soiled by foreigners
The legacy perished with the heirs
The noble and the mighty
Have all perished with glory

Mian zhu echoes with utter silence
The tirades of the brave
Somber in the glory of death.

The fool with no heart for his servants
Leaves his father's legacy
Without remorse.

Thus the oath died.
<i>One cannot be a martyr without belief.
One cannot live without purpose.
One mustn't die if not for a greater good.

My Journey To Meiwu (188 AD)

To pick daisies in the field of Chang'an
Tis thy maiden's dream to be without care.
Sitting through the meadows without wreck or sham
Eyeing the possessions of caramel skin and yellowish hair.
Thy maid of bliss looks up only to see
that corrupt from Zhuo & the Han have come to take thee.

Dragged to an unknown land, an unpleasent site,
wrapped houses, women without clothing, what a gruesome fright.
Every night the men come over
Picking and beating the women in their own houses save,
Simply makes me want to be live interred into my own grave.
Hopefully, a Saviour of sort, thy Kingdom of three, shall come.
And let thy heartache and misery be none.

Why can't they understand
That people are scared of them?
Brandishing their weapons
Like they just don't care.
We wait to see them
Not because we want to
But because we are forced to through pain
Only to be violated by their words
And tools
Telling us how to be
Where is their bedside manner?
They are meant to be professionals
Dentists, who needs them!

I wrote this whilst in the waiting room of my dentist. I was so nervous to be going in and I was proven right. I left with a very bad infection that made me ill for weeks. :(

Eh I didn't really want to post this because it's quite personal but I might as well share one. I wrote this 'Hypothesis Of Sorrow' poem awhile ago. One of my many poems. It's been asked to published before hence the copyright.

Liquid crystal swell but not leaked,
From weeks of torrent from twin spheres of blindness,
Has turned white to off red like raw tuna.
Sphere's envelope weathered,
Erosion of the cerebral cortex,
Intestines twisted like a dream.
Beating crisis offering bad food to temple,
The sacrifice was made though no ailment gained,
Lofn's presence once cherished
Flashbacks haunts reality's chaos,
Thanatos knocking though it seems,
Light loomed in laneway long though attainable.
Ahead the kaleidoscope of my microcosm,
But still on occasion, that vision,
Though the lips now brushes the gale.

Zhang Liao17 wrote:Here's teh first poem I ever wrote. I wrote it off teh top of my head a couple months ago for fun and I doubt its structured correctly, but its a decent first try at poetry.

Look down through teh past,
To find a warrior, who against Lu Bu could last,
You wouldn't find one who would dare,
To fight teh rider of Red Hare,
Lu Bu would slay them all,
Never could one stand as tall.

That was really good. You must have a good head, if you can think of that.
I might post my own soon.
First upload.
All hail to the lord!
