The Contest

(The Contest) I once knew a gentle poet boy Pretending to be the real McCoy He lost two in a row This is no game show At the end, I felt used by the playboy (The cold rain) I wish I could take back the HM Don't know why you chose to condemn I thought we were friends Now I see through crystal lens, How you think all your poems are a top gem (Not a reason to hate) I once knew a girl with heavy makeup Behind her smile, her face was corrupt She was in it for the race Wanting all her poems to place She did not win, now she's all worked up SKAT

Hi, Skat! Whenever I receive the N/A on an entry, it only gives me the incentive to do better. That is why I enter as many contests with different forms of poetry to tempt me to use. So good to see you sponsor a contest.

Cool triple hitter, Skat. All three are very funny. Enlighten me though: what is HM? I will laugh a lot harder on that once I know. Loved all three limericks. Three cheers w/fruit drinks, not beers. Love and joy to you.

Scanning these again for maybe the third time. They are good ones for how Soupers act around here sometimes. How ARE you these days, Skat? Let me go see if I went to your blog already or not.

Hi Skat, I enjoyed your varied limericks, they show a well developed sense of fun. If truth to tell, when I am in the mood I scribble out some of these short poems for the simple joy of it. Please continue to write.
