INSIDE MY HEAD I'M YOUNG - FOR 'OLD' POETS ONLY CONTEST

My muse is in a whirl For she just doesn’t have a clue Am I eligible to enter this contest … I really don’t know what to do! My age is of no concern to anyone but me I may be twenty-one or I may be eighty three Our friend retired at 35, I don’t class that as old Fortunately for him his investments all struck gold I’ve been posting on soup for well over a year Therefore I can’t enter a ‘new’ poets contest Does this make me an old poet? Can I enter this ‘Old Poets’ contest - that is my dilemma! Contest:- Inside my head For ‘Old’ Poets only Sponsor:- John Lawless 09~11~15

Jan, So do not take an enema or will end up in an enigma while watching a wild cinema. I am 74 myself and been married for 50 years in less than a year. Also, have been in Soup for shortest length of time out of all of the top 40 producers and am currently 20th. Jim Horn

I definitely fit the requirement to enter this contest, but I don't care to. I've been on Soup for at least ten (maybe more?) I'm too old now to remember exactly when. Best to you in the contest. And thank you for the stop by. / M

very clever Jan: Age is just a number he he. If you have been writing since you were three that would make you an old poet. lol Good Luck in the contest, It looks like a winner to me. SuZ

One becomes old when he stops dreaming and starts remembering no matter what the age might be! Get out of the dilemma and enter the... poets contest for you are young since you are writing such a fine poetry, dear Jan!

You'll know you're old when you sit down for awhile and when you get up it takes 4 or 5 steps to straighten up..I'm not sure you're there yet..
