The rules say one entry per member, AJB,

The rules also stated a certain deadline ;)

I am more or less happy with the one I stuck out there. Shall just hope for the best.

Deadlines are often extended by the person in charge, who has the final say in all matters.  Mark did not waive the one poem per person rule, though I suppose he could have.  

The problem with submitting more than one poem at the same time is that it hurts you, the writer, in the competition.  The second one will have the same or a similar style to the first, and the weaker one will tend to dilute the votes the stronger poem will get.  It is thus better to focus on just one poem at a time.
