Number 1

Suspected North Korea Drone Photographed
U.S. Missile-Defense Site

A plastic P-38 assembled from injection-molded
parts held tight with airplane cement,
painted with small and shaking hands, hung in a tree with
12 pound test Trilene, its distinctive twin booms
and a central nacelle containing cockpit and armaments –
enough to fuel a twelve year old imagining
dive bombing, night raids, ground attacks

and enough
for a toad with inherited power when asked about a plastic
P-38 found hung in a tree with 12 pound test Trilene to marvel
at the sleekness of the twin booms, the central nacelle and proclaim
with seemingly fissile-isotope-plated certainly that this was indeed part
of his masterful photo recognizance drone program to insure survival
of the entire North, where he is also the tango dancing bravo champion
of the world

and enough
for Accident Orange to tweet quick about a P-38 drone from which only
he can save the world, a disaster and Korean conspiracy pretending to
status of the crooked Trilene, a leaker too by the way.  We are a disaster, he says with Area 51 wisdom, and in so saying, makes it so, in the clutch of his small and shaking hands.

Truck For Sale

Daddy only drove it
Once in a while
Though I'm sure more
When it was in style
Oil was changed and
Timing was checked
Four on the floor
Never wrecked
The banker says
It's just an asset
But to me it's more
Dirt from Daddy's boot
Is still in the floor.

The winner is bhluie, congratulations mate. Up to you for the next one or let it drop, like the interest has dropped.

Thanks too to Tom , otherwise there would have been no contest.

Cheers to all other poets that didn't bother.

Thanks. I find the problem to be there are threads with more than 3000 posts. Rules state not to post on old threads. I am new here and that's contradictory. I did find the contests because someone had a link under their post but I don't know how to do that. I was curious enough to enter. And thank you, please but how do I start a new contest.
Best wishes,
B
