No Gain No Pain

I want to thank all of the judges and I'll try to make it quite clear for not letting me win in your contest I seem to lose weight every year I write my heart out on paper and I send it with hope, but at last It resist being read by you people but has no trouble finding the trash Still I say, I must give you my thanks And nothing more need now be said 'cause if I won one of your contest I couldn't bare the weight of my head

I like the content and that it was said in humor. I don't understand the word 'every' at the end of the 4th line, but I did enjoy your write very much. Keep your pen going, judges or no ... CayCay

G'day Jerry... see, by your own words, the judges are only trying to keep your ego in check. I really did enjoy this poem - Lindsay

Yes Lindsay, If it weren't for those judges, I might be rolling around on my noggin. It's true I've seen some Mellon heads, everything they do is "Great", that it becomes difficult for them to write a "Good" poem (I'm talking professionals not Soupers)

Hi Bev , thanks for the fine comment---I been so busy wrapping up business before the end of the year, I've hardly have time to read and write all the things that I would like. How about yourself ?
