Conspiracy theory poetry contest anyone?


Have you been inspired by all the madness with the "classified movement" recently? Are you filled with emotion, dread, fear, or confusion every-time you see another mysterious hashtag on the people page? Well here's a contest for you to funnel all that energy!

The prompt for the Poem a Week thread this week happens to be "Write a poem about a conspiracy theory." Let's do a little contest with it - whoever writes the best and most mysterious conspiracy poem by the end of the week (2/10/19) gets 500 points (if I get more than 1 entry, I may consider giving point prizes for 2nd, and 3rd place too)

Note that the poem doesn't necessarily have to be about YWS conspiracy theories, although I will give extra points for mysteriousness and creativity.

To submit a poem, either post it on the Unclassified Club wall or your own wall with the hashtag #UnclassifiedPoetry or send it to me (alliyah) in a PM.

Good Luck!

You can post any questions or discussion here - If I get any participants I'll be announcing the winners in this thread and on my wall.

Winner's have been announced - contest is closed,
thank you all for your entries
but i don't think i can ever love someone
who doesn't understand that teal
is a different color than dark cyan.
