11.11.21Calavera Poetry Contest

The Suomi Troupe would like to invite all Aislings across Temuair and Medenia to the first Calavera Poetry Contest!

When? ((Saturday, November 13th at 4PM PST))

Where? Suomi Theater

How to? Write your Calavera poem, contact Naena to confirm participation & show up at Suomi Theater, where we will have all contestants read their poems to the public. A panel of judges will rate the poems and choose a winner!

Legend marks, gold & more

Remember, Calaveras are meant to poke fun at people, not to disrespect, so you might want to double check with somebody if they are OK with your poem!

((What is a Calavera?
Calaveras are poems recited for the Day of the Dead. They're satirical poems that poke fun at people in a way that suggests they're dead, even though they're alive.

Thank you and hope to see everyone there!

the arena is now open for masters,

host firion needs to worldshout for casters,

he checks in his pocket and finds they are bare

now off to the bank, he'll see how he fares

tragic he did not see the banana peel

it must have been leftover from a meal

his mind was cluttered just as the street

who would have guessed it was death he'd meet

he slipped and tripped to meet his demise

not from a caster, but this is how he dies
