ICE KING

The numbness started at my finger tips       As a feeling of power engulfed my 
body        Feeling no pain from the ice         Gives one the feeling of being 
invinceable                     My conclusion after holding the ice till it 
melted.........How do you defeat an opponent who feels no 
pain                            Richard Ferry

    hmmm, how did you feel numbness at your finger tips? Were you holding that ice in a fierce grip? I REALLY like how you related your experience to the opponent who feels no pain. Brilliant. (to follow the contest rules, you need to put a short note at the bottom telling us what you did) But it's kinda neat the way you combined your poem with that assignment she gave us to put at the bottom of the poem. Your poem serves as BOTH.
