    Awesome poetry everyone! I have made my decision. First I will list the two poets that are honorably mentioned. There is no prize for honorable mentioned; I just wanted to acknowledge the talented poets that almost won the contest. It was a very close match.

    zlookup - I loved your poem. I wish I had a prize for second and third place. Keep up the good work.

    TheFury - Your second limerick is just about perfect. It was funny and it rhymed well.

    ...and the first place winner of the DVD is...

    SDCPs - Your poem blew my mind. I expected to pick the poem that made me laugh the most (TheFury's second limerick), but that's not how everything turned out. I was actually sad when you thought your sundew died. I will send you a PM with instructions to receive your prize.

    I want to thank everyone for participating. I hope you had fun writing your poetry!

    Thank you very much raccoon city for hosting such an awesome contest!

    I am honored to the the unexpected winner! In accordance with the ruling of the contest judge: I believe, your honor, that TheFury's second limerick and your own first limerick were the next best pieces here.

    Thank you for making this very entertaining contest possible! I enjoyed the poetry of others, and relished writing my own on demand.


    (@Fury: you cooked your own goose, man! If your limerick wasn't so good and inspiring, I'd never have entered. )
