I have been a part of Poetry Soup since 2009, and have made wonderful friendships, and been inspired beyond what I had could have ever imagined .  As a novice poet when I first joined up, I have learned so much, thanks to all of you.  Thank you for the many gifts of poetry, challenges, and inspirations.  But especially for the friendship and encouragement offered here. Thank you all, very much !


Dragon Slayers Need Better Sense (or Census Takers)


Blog Posted:5/7/2013 3:33:00 PM
I was glancing over the list of current contests taking place, and noticing the "Dragon Slayer Contest" reminded me of this incident I had heard awhile back on the news!  Check it out!  

Better be careful when the census taker comes to your door......instead of "12 Angry Men"  or ladies......there could be a cat fight in the jury room !!

    that was a funny one, Carrie. I can believe it. The dodo birds running our systems of government!!! Maybe the cat could do better than the judge who is forcing the cat to appear for the day of determining the jury!!
