I am OK

Yes, "Foolproof" did win third place and you sent your "Congrats"
Even before the judging I felt your sympathy
The heartfelt comments, from the very first to the last 
Excepting our Sidney, who somehow saw right through me

I am taken aback and have to explain myself
I do have an Lazy Boy and a three bedroom house
I play cards online and my Avatar is an elf
I've never been fired, self employed for ten years now

I do recycle my cans, it pays the water bill
I walk my old Staffordshire "Ace" just after two
I do pray each night that the world embraces good will
I am glad I found Poetry Soup, because of you
