Forums to Unwind

by Eternal Muse

        "Sure glad we've got Forums!" - the Lion declared
          "Where feelings are real, and all souls are bared
          With so many issues, I am glad to unload!"
          "Oh, yeah - we've got issues all right!" quacked the Toad.

          "The contests, for one, drive me right up the wall -
          Have been here for years, and can't win one at all!
          My stuff's pretty good, the reviewers have said
          So what is the prob? Did they have me misled?"
         "And what truly gets me," - Bat cried from a tree
         "If those wins were merit-based, I would agree!
         But it's PRESENTATION - big letters and all
         that gets them the ribbon - hey, I am appalled!"

         "Another one bugs me" - said Emu the 'Mu,
         "The syllable count short-long-short in haiku
         I have been disqualified twice for the crap!
         I tell you - that's foul play, they're setting a trap!"

         "Just wait, guys" - Baboon said - "I need to unload,
         Last night they discussed "Can Haiku be an Ode?"
         They must have gone nuts - too much time on their hands!
         "A Hikode" - new form? Welcome to La-La Land!"

         "And all that rhyme-rhythm", sang Twitty the Bird
         "Iambic pentameter" - check out those words!
         My bird-brain is fried - no more Forums for me.
         I was so much happier back home on a tree!"
