Close your eyes, rattle those spotted ivorys, and (metaphorically) toss one.  No holds barred.  See you in the alley behind the bakery on Seventh.

What I need to know is, are you saying ANY poem on any theme is acceptable? Or do you want something to do literally with a crap shoot? If I take you figuratively, I can assume I can enter anything! New OR old? Hope I got that right.
