Thank you so much, Rob, for the chance to get my little poem a bit of exposure ... from what I've seen ALL these poems deserve placement, (though it's always about the taste of the sponsor, and people like what they like, and don't always agree. That's the spice of life ... not about whether or not the poem is good, but rather what the judge was looking for or enjoys). Congrats to all the winners - great stuff, everyone! :-)

Another great thing about this site is the differences among the judges. For me, if the poem follows the rules of a standard contest, it should place somewhere between 1st and 15th.

Like Constance, I thank you for the opportunity to enter an N/A. Your list was very generous. I hope this year treats you really good, Rob.

Hey Rob, I screwed myself. My entry must have been the one entered in a previous contest - my bad! It hasn't been a good 24 hours for me. Coincidentally I upset my wife last night and she told me to do the same thing. Mother Teresa she ain't. Congrats to the winners.

Yes, your poem placed 2nd in the Screwed VII contest. I can give you a list of prior submissions if you want, just let me know and I can soupmail the list to you. As for the wife, I am sure you know how to make things right.

Hey Arty, why you blocked me? I've missed our little chats. I've got so much still to teach you. Yes, I can be an ass but the mighty ass bears the heavy burden of others. And when the ass is on the move, nothing can stop the ass. If you unblock me I will join your one man wolf pack. Deal?
