A poem written by blogcatalog members as a part of a poetry game. I initiated the game with a single line and then invited others to add a line, the only rule being that two lines cannot be written consecutively by the same person. I hope this poetic demonstration of teamwork. The verses are colour coded to represent each writer, you can click on the names to go to each writer’s blog directly. You can also visit the original game forum to see exactly what was going on at www.blogcatalog.com/discuss/entry/a-game-of-poetry-no-2-cont…

TICK-TOCK HEAR THE CLOCK, HEART PUMPING, DON’T STOP,
WHEELS TURNING, CIRCUITS BURNING, REACH THE TOP,
HEAD FORWARD, VISION CLEAR, PACE YOUR HEART AS YOU STEP,
DON’T LOOK BACK, FORGET THE PLACE FROM WHERE YOU CREPT.
STAY THE COURSE, GUIDE YOUR HORSE, EVER ONWARD,
DON’T STRAY, STAY IN LINE, ALL ELSE IS CENSORED.
HANDS ON HIPS, WIGGLE QUICK, THEN STAND STRAIT AS A STICK,
STAY AWAKE, FOR YOUR SAKE, WHEN NIGHT FALLS BURN THE WICK.
LEFT HAND, WRONG HAND, WE ARE ALL AT THE MERCY OF THE SHORT HAND,
HANDS UP, EYES SHUT, DANCING BLINDLY TO THE TUNE OF THE WORLD’S BAND
KEEP YOUR HEAD UP, AS YOU’RE MOVING, TO THE MUSIC
BEND, DO NOT BOW, YOU’RE REALLY GETTING SOMEWHERE NOW.
SHINE BRIGHT, DO NOT HEED, STARS ARE ALL THE AUDIENCE YOU NEED,
SLOW AND STEADY WINS IT ALL, DON’T GIVE UP, DON’T TAKE A FALL.
DO NOT FOLLOW, TAKE THE LEAD, THERES NO RUSH NO NEED FOR SPEED,
TAKE HEART, YOU CAN START, DANCING TILL THE NIGHT DEPARTS.
TWO STEPS HERE AND TWO STEPS THERE, TWIRL AROUND WITHOUT CARE,
THE HEART HAS A SONG, SO LET IT SING, AND SING ALONG.
FEEL FREE TO MOVE AS YOU PLEASE, GO AND LET DOWN YOUR HAIR,
MIND STEADY, BALANCE KEPT, FROM THIS POINT IT CAN’T GO WRONG.
DANCE TO THE SONG THE WHOLE UNIVERSE IS SINGING

FEEL THE FREEDOM YOU SEEK, CAN’T YOU HEAR THE LIBERTY BELLS RINGING?
I FEEL MY HEART BEAT FASTER AND MY PULSES LEAP,
LAST TWIRL IN THE AIR BEFORE FALLING TO A HAPPY EXHAUSTED SLEEP.
