You're very welcome. I want to make sure that your baby is well looked after and done right. Again, thank you for all the work you did getting this challenge started.

There's now a sticky at the top of the poetry forum titled LM Poetry Challenge and provides a link inside to this forum.

Poets' Pisshouse?

Rhymers' Rombustuous Rotunda of Revulsion?

Versifiers' Veritable Vaginal...

No, thinking about it, Bistro is good!

Though when I read the word "bard", I think of Shakespeare, who I can be fairly certain never entered a bistro.
Bard is a druid term, still used, relating to poets who traditionally veiled the Druid mysteries in their verse. End of trivial pursuits session :)

The bloke who played Ken Barlow in Corrie was a druid; I saw him at Stonehenge in the murky past. He was blowing some horn thing, I was tripping. We didn't speak; I thought it best not to. That was the year I told some Druid bint with a large chest that she could have health, wealth and happiness if she'd let me violate her pooper.

Ah, those new age days.

I just knew that we were sure to get some intelligent chat going here. ](*,)

This seems as good a place as any to say thanks for your votes for my poem and the other winners,congrats. To Baron for getting it started, to selorian and cran and pete and ilasir foxee and all the others I have missed for all the efforts to set this (the above) up for all of us poets here. I really like the judging criteria and will print it of for my writing book, so as to have a good guide to make poems by. again thanks, huni

Thank you, Huni. I hope that the LM Poetry Challenge continues to be as fun and exciting for all of our poets as it always was in the Poetry forum.

Which brings me to:
The next challenge is officially underway.

I was a few hours late in posting it, due to being under the weather and entertaining in-laws over the weekend, but it is up now.

The theme for this challenge, as submitted by Baron, is theatre.

Also, give a round of applause to your judges for this round:
Ilasir Maroa
rcallaci
Pete C
Shawn


My personal thanks to each of them for graciously agreeing to judge. All four of you rock to the extreme!

Submissions for the 'theatre' LM Poetry Challenge is now closed.

There are thirteen terrific entries. Thank you to everyone who participated.

One of the main ideas behind the 'people's choice' vote was to help narrow the field of entries to make judging not so hard because of volume. Since there are only thirteen, should we move straight to the judging round, or should we go ahead and do a people's choice vote?

I see no problem with going straight to the judging round.

A few people who would usually submit a poem haven't been on the board for one reason or another over the last few weeks. I'm hoping that there'll be a better response to the next one.
