David and Goliath theme poem

Poetry Contest
Write a poem of a somewhat vulnerable character against a powerful character - in the vein of David vs Goliath. However, please do not submit an actual David and Goliath poem. Come up with some new mismatch. Since it would be too easy to have the powerful one squash the underdog, the little guy has to win in the end.

The contest winner will win half of the prize pool which is based on the number of entries. The second and third place winners will each share the remaining prize pool. The prize pool is currently 56.00 member dollars. There are 10 spots still open. If all open spots are used the prize pool will be 126.00 member dollars. In this contest at least 5 submissions must be made for the vote to begin.

Deadline: Contest Is Closed.
