Anagrams galore

Who likes anagrams?

Write a short story (maximum 150 words) or a poem of any type, containing a minimum of three anagrams.

Complication: each anagram can be used with as many translations as you can find.
However, the minimum required is the original word and one translation.

Find a way to differentiate between word sets, writing each set in an individual style:

Block capitals
Different colours

That way, your reviewers can easily follow one anagram around the page.

Enjoy! ;D

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 75.00 member dollars. There are only 3 spots still open. If all open spots are used the prize pool will be 90.00 member dollars. In this contest at least 2 submissions must be made for the vote to begin.

Deadline: Contest is closed. Deadline was Sunday, June 6, 2010.
