She Lifts the Tiger's Skull

dancing in circles ancient coliseum roars braided hair, wielding her sword breasts dangle, males groan paradoxical shear strength Rome’s new sexual side show emperor’s treasure assumes entertaining stance clasps taut her spear, gasps for breath Goliath cat down inspires the crowd to laud lifts tiger’s skull-victory! (Syllable counter incorrect on 4th line. It has 5 syllables, not 6). Written for Amy Green's Contest-Choka for a Choke Hold 5-11-12 2nd place

    That syllable counter is not very accurate - I stopped using it. Congratulations on your winning poem about an unusual female gladiator.

    ok, regarding poetry punctuation, I always punctuate same as anything else I would punctuate. I don't do capital letters except when beginning a new sentence. In other words, all caps on every line not necessary. Just use the same rules as you would in a nice letter or essay. That is what I've seen done in nice poetry anthologies lately. Hope that helps.Luv, Andrea

    I made a comment on this before and it didn't register and I find that all my comments have to be validated twice. Something's wrong here. Heads on the block here, what a trophy and sideshow to boot! Luv, Lizabeth

    Gwen, I had read that sometimes they had this kind of fighting. That was great that you represented this other type of duel. Good job with the challenge, and happy mother's day to a real sweetie.

    This is a fabulous write my friend! I really enjoyed your proud woman gladiator fighting a goliath of a cat! May she always win(so the males chant in the stands)! I hope you are doing well, with your studies and everything you must endure! I am well...just have a lot on my plate at the moment keeping me from doing too much on the Soup! Great Work...Take care!!
