Poetry Challenge #89 'control'
« on: February 19, 2014, 09:42:34 AM »
Okay poemsters, let’s see how you interpret ‘control’ as a theme for entries. Be as creative as you like, just don’t make it too long . . . some readers aren’t terribly patient, but hey, it might be a masterpiece and I’m not going to cramp your style.

Have fun.

Entries by PM to me before 6pm Thursday 27th March February 2014.

Thank you. :-*

Did you by chance mean Thursday Feb 27 for the deadline?
It's good to laugh at yourself once in a while - why let everyone else have all the fun!

I'm assuming so.

You are such a dork at times  ;D . . . There is no rule which says the numbers have to be posted. I put them up to keep people informed as and when I can, after having copied and pasted the poem into a document with the correct formatting if it's required. So I forgot to announce #2 when it came in . . . maybe I went to the loo, maybe I received another message and got into a conversation -- who knows? ::)

Maybe I'm lying and there are none in at all! :o

That's what I've been thinking.

Presumably there's three - or perhaps four - members who could leap to Sio's defence here, but that would mean blowing their cover, so I assume they won't.

Telling someone they're a bead short on their abacus has the makings of a fine insult, like being three chips short of a butty ;-)
