NEW RULES CONCERNING REMOVAL OF ENTRIES ... PLEASE READ ENTIRE PAGE

Please remember that if you enter this challenge it would be nice to read and comment on the other entries and please return to vote when the challenge closes.. thank you!

Hello folks! The very fondly remembered Jollynoblefrog had a great idea and so this challenge was born! This will be a Starlite-voted challenge.

The idea is to write a poem in any style and on any subject but the catch is that you have to do it in EXACTLY 40 WORDS.. NO MORE OR NO LESS! Titles do not count in word count of poem. Also...NEW RULES... ampersands ( & ) will not be allowed to replace the word 'and. You can use them but they will not be added in the word count to replace 'and'. Also single letters cannot be used as words (except of course I, A, or O when used as a single word)... example: B E C A U S E will not count as seven words no matter how they are configured in the poem. And one final rule...hyphenated words will be counted as TWO words. THERE MUST BE 40 WORDS IN THE BODY OF THE POEM.. NO MORE OR NO LESS! Do you think you're up to the challenge? Let's see! Ready...set...GOOOOOOOOO!


This challenge ends on the date and time stated above OR upon reaching the limit of 15 poems. Have fun and enjoy!!

All poems entered must be open for all to view! This will allow all Starlite to vote fairly. IF AN ENTRY IS HIDDEN, DOES NOT COMPLY WITH STARLITE POLICY, OR IS NOT COMPLIANT WITH THE STATED CHALLENGE RULES, THE ENTRY WILL BE REMOVED FROM THE CHALLENGE WITHOUT NOTICE. ONLY ONE ENTRY PER POET! THIS DOES NOT MEAN PEN NAME... IT MEANS POET! IF YOU SUMBIT A COLLABORATION, YOU ARE NOT ALLOWED TO ENTER ANOTHER POEM IN THAT CURRENT CHALLENE, NO MATTER WHO POSTED THE COLLABORATION. NOR CAN YOU ENTER ANOTHER POEM USING ANOTHER PEN NAME.

And a note from your challenge moderator... as moderator of this challenge I would like to thank all of you who have participated in The Quickie Challenges.
