actually, bar dear, they probably also shouldn't post their poems in the regular boards either.  no public display prior to the comp.  ask Amie or Mark if you need verification of that.  if you write me I will give you a further review of your poems.  

of course now they can post these two, since the poems are disqualified already.

On a wave
white horses cascading
I surfed
on my board, bored
sharks below, and hawks above
the harmony of smaller hawks
that nestled above baby hawks
and miniature sharks
eating shark eggs
making french toast
with
imaginary eggs
I was that egg
but I was a good egg
wondering if I came first
or if I was
but
a chicken with a pen
who couldn't read
listening to a Bar
screaming and Eric
tittering.
Sorry Bar.  ;D

Did I Win???  ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D
