I feel gypped
my manuscript
must not have been compelling
to elongate
the entry date
is really rather telling
I don't know why
I continue to try
it seems I'm just a glutton
a hookless hasp
of limited grasp
a hole without a button.

Relax, man. Go have a beer.
After a few beers,
anything becomes clear.

Oh darn! Not again. You haven't failed until you stop trying my friend.

Pat Hatt said...

Yep keep at it I say
Each and every day
For a time will come
With you will hum
A new tune
Under a full moon

just try and remember all the rejections, some of the great had--you've go this!

I wrote this 6 months ago when they extended the deadline, and since my entry was already in I figured my odds weren't too good but didn't want to post this until I knew - oh well, plan B is already in action. Thanks for the encouraging words!!

Keep on swimming!!! Really. Next one could be it! Or the rejected, well received elsewhere. Best of luck to you! I'll be back to read more. And thanks for the kind comments today for z.
