The 40th Poetry Contest The commandments: * The poem must be based on the theme I set if not it will not be entered. * Only one poem per member or they will be deleted and you will be stricken from the contest. * No editing a poem once it is submitted without prior permission. So please PM me before you edit you poems or I will have no choice but to not enter your piece for voting. * The poems are to be entered into this thread. * No soliciting votes. Do not ask people to vote for you, or attempt to cheat the system. You will be caught, and then I'll have to think of some suitable punishment for you. * Put the title at the beginning of your poem. Otherwise it will be removed from the contest and you will be notified by PM. The entry stage will end in five days, on 15th April, 2008, whereupon voting will be opened. The voting stage will end after three days, on 18th April, 2008. The winner will have their poem stickied in the Poetry Thread for a week following their victory.
