    Hello Everyone! As you know Talia and I are hosting a Christmas party on December the 21st at 3pm Eastern. If you have looked at her link you probably have saw the idea of a Christmas Poetry contest! Here is the rules for the contest.
    1. Must have something to do with Christmas
    2. Can not be copped off a website or anything..
    3. Must be appropriate (must be clean, no fowl language, etc etc)
    4. The most important rule.. Have fun!!
    Look for Talia and I on Siege Perilous to hand us your poem! All Poems will be taken into a special edition of the Perilous Inquier and will be judged from there by other members. Please do not say hey! this is my poem everyone.. We will make it annomus. So everyone has a fair chance at winning.. the prize for winning the contest will be a surprise and there will be 3 winners. Thank you all for taking the time to read this!

    Sorry, but all of Kelmo's poems contain references to people in Nantucket - and wouldn't lend themselves to the holiday atmosphere... Something about fowl language...

    Poinsettias are red
    And smurfs are blue
    I hate poetry
    And I hate you.

    Oh and here's a poem for you
    Roses are Red, Violets are blue, I know who you are, And I don't like you.

    Kat - Just ignore him. He's always that way, trying to spoil the fun. The guy says he hates poetry, which certainly shouldn't be surprising. Don't give him more reasons to respond...

    If I may... Yes I do have a problem it clearly says in the rules that you are not to show everyone your poem therefore you are disqualified.

    Just a reminder all poems are due the 19th.. If someone needs a extra day to come up with one i will allow it. Thank you all for taking the time to write them! remember all the poems will be posted on a different thread.
