Lament contest entry

The Loss (a sonnet)

by DragonSkulls

So diligently I will write reviews,
where every cent is needed to promote.
I wish to join a prompt but I refuse
to pay real cash to enter what I wrote.

Besides the five I spend to join the fun
I also have to give committee fees.
I've paid before the voting has begun.
I'm told that there is no return for these.

But sadly money's lost, just as I feared,
from what I see is leading in the booth.
A piece where simple rules were not adhered.
Our money's lost beneath a bitter truth.

Must we forget the many tears we've sobbed,
when rules were overlooked and we were robbed?

Wrte a Lament contest entry
Pays one point and 2 member cents.
