Here we go, we will see how many entries, if any, this one gets.


Open a newspaper, any newspaper. Any headline catch your eye? Please use the headline as your opening and write a poem on any subject using this headline as your starter. No more than 20 lines please. PM entries to me by the 24th June midnight CET. Ok what are you waiting for.

Someone please sticky this for me.

Cheers
Richard

That makes folks afraid to enter, because there is a high probability they'll win and have to host the next challenge.  ;D
