Welcome to the Anthology Thread for the March 2010 SDMB Poetry Sweatshop. I will begin posting the poems already submitted in the next few replies, and at 6 PM PDT, I will establish a poll to determine the readers’ favourite poem.
I just want to emphasize the importance of voting - the poets are depending for an outside opinion of their work. The poll is by secret ballot, so no one need ever know how you voted. Please note that the poll is seeking your favourite poem - no deep arcane knowledge of poetry’s inner workings is required. Whichever poem strikes a chord with you, please give it your vote. And, though the choice will be difficult, please take the time to choose one poem.
I also want to mention that because of our current working method, all of the following poems will be posted under my user name, which may lead people to think that I am trying to claim authorship. Only one of the following poems is mine - the authors’ names may be found in the spoiler boxes at the bottom of each reply.
ETA: The three words this month are:** Inexorable, Good, Ado**
And so, I present our poets’ work for this month…
