Contests: just for fun

Winning contests pleases folk; Losing makes ‘em shrug. Write a lot and go for broke; Get that writing bug. Try new forms and have a blast; Enter, have a ball. Nothing wrong with coming last; Laugh about it all. for Joe’s I just can’t win contest Using the 7/5 trochee, a form created by Andrea

wowowowow. somebody who wrote in my little invented form and did it RIGHT. the meter is SPOT ON and the topic is just right. This is exactly what I had in mind for it,Jack, for it to be done with THIS kind of meter. I give you A+!!!!(sure hope to see this top of the winner list) you clever boy, you.
