Question: What do you think of my entry in the "Drink beer and drive to the game with the radio on" poetry challenge!?
Onto the chaparral
under a lone star,
a flock of seagulls,
raiders with intrigue,
paint red stripes
in the clash!.

Olympia and Mercury,
rainy oilers on
men at work,
a cavalier grand safari,
at anchor,

(Do I get double points for 'Cavalier'; both a car and a ballplayer!?)Www@QuestionHome@Com

Best Answer - Chosen by Asker:
Didn't you say "in each line"!?Www@QuestionHome@Com

Don't you also get double for 'lone star' and 'raiders!?'

It's not fair! You took a couple of hours to come up with this great poem!. The rest of us did it in minutes!.

Tapping on the keyboard,
a marathon
Longing to fly like eagles,
an impossibility
Flapping, failing wings,
cries at vespers
Fearing I may never reach

this is what I get for working on a weekend!.!.I never know whatinhell is happening(sigh)Www@QuestionHome@Com

I think you've got the win hands down!.

A Cavalier is also a breed of dog, you know, that should count for extra points too!Www@QuestionHome@Com

After being stupidly convicted of a DUI, I think your challenge title is most unwise!.Www@QuestionHome@Com

You get two points taken away for typing "ballplayer" when it's a NBA team, but I think you still have a large enough margin for a win!.Www@QuestionHome@Com

You win!. Haha - I do believe you get double points a few times in that one!.

EDIT: Then according to Diane's statement I think we should be graded on a curve!. :-)Www@QuestionHome@Com

Hmmm, I think you've got it!. You pulled out some not so well known named!.Www@QuestionHome@Com

me thinks triple points for all that you have squeezed into this one!Www@QuestionHome@Com
