Give a around of applause to @big soft moose for he has succeeded in conquering our 276th poetry contest! @Wreybies shall award you your medal for your efforts! I also want to thank everyone else who participated as well. You might've not won the contest, but I still appreciate the time and effort you all put into your poems for the contest. Also without everyone participating it wouldn't have been much of a contest. With that being said feel free to read Moose's poem below! __________________________________________________________________________ When.. When you try to do what's right and it's thrown back in your face When twenty years hard graft risks ending in disgrace. When all around people chatter and talk behind your back. When truth's a slender reed bent by slander's vile attack. When the people you can trust can be counted on one hand When success years in building has foundations made of sand When friendship's love is tainted and the gossips say “affair” When all you've worked for's broken vandalised beyond repair When every good thing is gone and happiness all crumbled into pain When the light at tunnel's end is really just a train. __________________________________________________________________________ See ya guys over on the next contest! Thanks!
