    Congratulations Jerry! It is a very fine poem, and an entirely deserved victory.
    "I should only believe in a God that would know how to dance. And when I saw my devil, I found him serious, thorough, profound, solemn: he was the spirit of gravity- through him all things fall. Not by wrath, but by laughter, do we slay. Come, let us slay the spirit of gravity!" - Nietzsche

    Thank you very much everybody who took part writing or voting or commenting. I am honoured. The biggest thank you to qimissung for organising the competition in the first place.

    For those who believe,
    no explanation is necessary.
    For those who do not,
    none will suffice.

    Jerry, you actually won with 9 votes, not just 8. I read the poems early on but didn't get back in time to vote, Dandelion Clock was my pick. It's just lovely.

    "But do you really, seriously, Major Scobie," Dr. Sykes asked, "believe in hell?"
    "Oh, yes, I do."
    "In flames and torment?"
    "Perhaps not quite that. They tell us it may be a permanent sense of loss."
    "That sort of hell wouldn't worry me," Fellowes said.
    "Perhaps you've never lost anything of importance," Scobie said.

    i feel so silly
    three pages of comments
    everyone has seen the poems and voted
    but i don't see any poems

    i've clicked on every speck of dust
    i've single-clicked, double-clicked,
    clicked on all the color bars of the poll,
    clicked my heels, ticked, and frog kicked

    i've clicked numbers, poem titles, page numbers,
    clicked on thread tools, search box, and rate thread,
    clicked on ads with arrows, clicked blank spaces
    i've flicked, flipped, and tripped (don't ask on what)

    i even did card tricks

    The winner's poem was posted but can someone tell me how to view all the poems please? I asked this on a previous poll thread but the next day all poll comments were mysteriously deleted (thread titled "Don't Know Much About History").
    Oh, I get it...this is a secret society and i have to go through hazing first?

    You went through a lot of trouble to read poems that don't exist anymore! The thing is that once the voting period comes to an end, they are erased, and then the winner is announced. I wouldn't say it's out of being a secret society, but rather that it's done in order to protect the authors' right to do with their writings as they please. However, I've often thought that it would be nice to pay them another read, maybe by reposting them in a special section or something like that

    Thank you for taking the time to explain,Max. That's helpful to know. Maybe I'll catch the next one if I'm quick enough. Nice to meet you ^__^
