    I was curious as to what kind of poetry contest this is? Are we supposed to write a poem about Herp's? or just any poem will do?

    The poem is to be an original work about herps and should be a minimum of 5 lines, no max. If you wish to post an entry you may do so here in this thread and we will move your post over to the contest thread when it is repaired.

    We have had photo contests but not species specific. We try to make the subject matter of any and all contests as available to ALL members as we can!

    No more quick question. Should I or do I need to repost my poem. Because everytime the site went down I had to reregister my name? Or should I repost it to be on the safe side?

    Hey Rebel, I would suggest you repost it. I dont think the contest was brought over and everyone will need to repost.

    Please re-post your entries so everyone gets to read them, we will merge any new ones into the original thread once it is restored.

    Kool hey it is again:
    A REPTILE IS
    A friend is always there
    Someone to talk to, and
    someone who listens.
    Someone who you can sit
    in total silence with and
    and you both love it.

    Sure a reptile may be
    a little scaly, cold-blooded
    and only wants to be out
    at night.
    But hey thats what most of us love
    about 'em.

    And once you get bit by that reptile bug
    Trust me you'll never wnt another.

    That is what a reptile is.

    Once again....

    Feed Me! Feed Me!

    It’s dark and warm on Saturday night
    Curled up inside my igloo hide
    I wait patiently although my belly rumbles with hunger
    Still dark, still waiting
    She’ll come home soon I know it

    Ah, finally there she is!
    The lights flick on and I catch the familiar scent
    Mom is home! Hooray, Hooray!
    I know what she brings me
    Dinner will come! Yum!

    The locks are unlatched and the lid is lifted
    I poke my head out, my tongue flicking like crazy
    It’s mom and she’s come to take me out
    Out of the hide I slither, she picks me up

    Across the room we go
    Towards that familiar plastic container
    The scent within drives me wild
    I wiggle a little in anticipation
    I know what’s in there!
    Dinner is served!

    I come face to face with my fuzzy treat
    As mom snaps the lid on
    I strike, my mouth open wide
    Within minutes I am already closing my mouth over the tail end
    Licking my scaly lips in satisfaction
    My belly full

    Soon it’s back into my home I go
    Mom setting me gently back down
    I head back into my igloo hide
    And wait….
    Hehehe…
    Until next week, mouse…

    A Poem for Princess

    This poem i did for Rachel and Joe, for the lil one they lost, :confused:

    A poem for Princess

    your little life was special, it wasn't meant to be
    they did there best to care for you, if only you could see,
    you ran around your cage, chasing little crix,
    you even did your very best, to eat the veggie mix.

    The little time you had, you brought such joy and saddness,
    why is life so cruel, its just damn right madness,
    a beautiful bearded dragon, in heaven you shall be
    as heaven only takes the best, you can bask on a golden tree,

    it's time to say goodbye, to a wonderful little friend,
    we didn't really want to, we wanted you to mend,
    goodnight little darling, you will be sadly missed,
    hope your a lot happier now, chasing all them crix.


    goodnight Princess​
