Some poets take Soup contests so seriously
If they lose they respond so injuriously

We’re here to have fun; isn’t that really the point?
And a czar of ALL contests, we just won’t anoint

We win and we lose but grow tired of the whining
The stress, grief and tension are all now combining

If you suffer poormewhininglosersyndrome
Just remember the prize you can’t always take home

We all spend a lot of time writing for contests
If we win only one, we should feel we are blessed

We must all learn to eat humble pie now and then
And put an end to brooding like flustered old hens

    You speak of so much truth here, Diane and I really like your word here, too! Yup, we should all have a bite of that humble pie :D I hope to see this in the winners' circle :)

    Heya Diane. Your comment on my poem "Winter-eye-zed" made it so glaringly obvious that I had to add 'indoor' to the spider plants....I didn't want to when I first wrote the poem, but your comment made me realize that maybe I should, so that people don't think I was hallucinating about spider plants growing new shoots in the negative degree snow and ice lol. Thanks for pointing that out to me, even if you didn't mean to!~Chris

    This one better not beat mine or I'll go berzerk. For I AM the czar of poetr.........Oh wait, I'm doing it aren't I. Perhaps a little Nyquil In my apple juice will take the edge off. lol

    Lofe your title. I agree with the whining bit. I whine about things all day long, so, when I write poetry I want to try and laugh, most often at myself. Face it though, Diane, whining is one of the things that make the world go round. Love, Dave
