Your prompt was fine, Richard. These writers are lame. And I guess I have to include myself. I love to enter the contests, and would have this time, but I am sick of entering a contest with one or two others. Maybe fall will bring some new enthusiasm.

no prob about the winner then eh?  ;D

People always talk about the "summer break" and the lull in entries, but there are enough people on the poetry boards posting. As I said mate I was away and completely forgot. Thought deadline was end of August :(

Do you think it would be a problem to extend the deadline?

Nobody's entering any of the contests because there is so little support, there's an excellent chance if you enter, you win (and host the next challenge). It is sad. I used to enter them all. And would again ... if others would ... and it'd be a real competition.
