A contest entry about the contest
The Upstart Blinks

I count the entries
Eight already
And it’s only August 8
That’s some contest
More like competition
Let’s read a few
Start at the end
They’ve been in longer
Waiting for me
This one’s good
Who wrote it?
A yellow - hang on
The eye drifts upwards
Noting colours
Lots of yellows all preferred
A blue or two (Ooh, a rhyme)
Hey, a black
But not newby three years on
Do I have the gall
To throw this cheeky tripe
Amongst the greats?
Read them all
Reputation stands for nothing
(Which works both ways)
Another good one
Heck they’re all
At the very least too good for me
And now I see
First on the list
That does it - I despair
Maybe someone somewhere
Wants a story…
