What to Submit?
In honor of Badge 714 of the LAPD I am looking for 2 stanzas, one in the 7-1-4 format meaning the first line has 7 syllables, the second line has 1 syllable, and the last has 4 syllables. The other stanza a questionku. It can be in any order. The theme for this contest is Joe Friday. My only other rule is to have fun! Any questions can be sent to me. I am looking forward to reading some great poems.
