I Just can't win

Many 
contestants;
great,  
small, 
experts, 
novices.
Many 
entries; 
masterworks,  
masterpieces, 
chef d' 
oeuvres, 
magnum 
opuses,doggorels.
Well 
experienced 
Judges 
with 
wonderful 
tastes for 
poetry,
Ready and 
eager to 
have my 
lines 
examined. 
With my 
blunt 
pencil and 
grandpa's 
dictionary,
I worked 
hard to 
pen down 
this 
doggerel.
With my 
grain of 
faith I 
thought it 
could win 
me a prize;
How 
wrong i 
was! Oh 
what 
vanity!
I should 
have 
known 
this earlier,
This is a 
contest i 
just can't 
win.
