Life Without the Letter A contest entry

It's Ingenious

by DragonSkulls

I ponder of the numbers here,
while I so slowly browse,
who'll step no foot outside the box
then write their piece on vowels.

Oh me, oh my, one letter's gone,
I think I'll write of this.
So cleverly my piece will shine.
Then I will dwell in bliss.

My profile then will fill with gold
for crimes here I commit.
I'll count the riches this prompt gives,
I keenly stole with wit.

For surely no one else will think
to use this ruse like me.
The letter we just mustn't write
holds fortune, I foresee.

I'll count the gold with greedy eyes.
Yes, this much I'll confess.
For no one else will think of this,
then cry for my success.

If none here see my mocking words,
I hope it comes to light.
Just write the piece on something else
then tell yourself, "He's right."
