What about proposing a subject and getting people to write about it, for instance 'birds on the battlefield'.

A starling flew onto a battle field dead
T'was just looking for a tiny scrap of bread
But in the distance, a soldier took aim
And with the loud bang, he spoilt the poor birds game.

WOULD ANYONE LIKE TO CONTINUE WITH THE NEXT STANZA PLEASE?

The bullet whistled past loud and clear,
filling the bird with abject fear,
through the sky the round sliced through,
and on the side scribed "from me to you"

The poor bird then did a whoopsie
Said 'oh dear me! blast and ooopsie!
You damn people,that round nearly hit
Just watch out, on your head I'll S***'

The sniper then slowly took a fresh bead
The starling alas he did not take heed
The bullet went into the little birds chest
But could not go through his bullet proof vest

Then our brave liitle bird gave a chirp
'Try as you might you silly big twerp
You can't harm me, cos I'm Super-Dan
So stick you head down the Lavvy pan'.

I'm just a little dickie bird
Why do you shoot straight at me
Or is it that you're tired of killing
Your foe the enemy

I will shoot you little dickie birds,
And I will shoot you just for the fun
Because my officer spoke these words
"If anything moves, shoot with your gun"....

And bring my life to an untimely end

They took little bird, dressed in red vest & socks
And put the dead sweet bird, into a tiny little box
All the riflemen stood in a straight line of twos
And the young boy bugler played the St Mary's blues

Why did they have to shoot me
I so enjoyed my avian life
Flying high above the battlefields
Away from care and strife
Now someone's gone and shot me
Bringing my life to an end
Which is sad because I spent my life
Trying to be everyone's friend
But that's the way the cookie crumbles
Enjoy life while you may
For sure as the Sun rises tomorrow
You'll be joining me one day
