Congratulations on this win. . .or lose. Not sure about this one. I know addiction and it's not fun. . .so this feels sad. I think the writing is profound, it just doesn't match the prompt for me.

Turning yourself around, that's what coming off an addiction is all about. Well crafted poem delivers this message spot on. Can see why this won the contest.

"Addicted", is short, succinct and very much to the point. Woven between each line are the golden threads of truth. It was a pleasure to both read and review a work of this standard. I look forward to seeing your next post.

Hey Donald. That's a good one. I have often wondered if that's what it was really all about. Thanks to your insightful poetry, I now know. That's very clever. Robert

This is great. Really enjoyable read and so clever. I admire those who can say so much in so few words. Your author's note is exactly right. The addicted are the only ones who can turn themselves around when/if they hit bottom. I see you won first place. Well deserved. Marilyn

LOL! You have made excellent use of all of your syllables in this thought-provoking, humorous poem. I realize sometimes people need professional help, but sometimes people CAN turn themselves around. My father smoked for fifty years--then quit, cold turkey!

In my opinion, a clever and fun write - but, with a palpable message, including your Notes, with which I wholeheartedly agree. We all have the capacity within ourselves to turn ourselves around. I did it, and if I can, so can everyone else. I ceased smoking, after 47 years of cigarette smoking addiction, on August 26, 2003, and have never lit a cigarette once in that time for myself, or anyone else. So, your poem's message is not only relevant, but doable. Thank you for sharing...

    You are so welcome, Don and Vicki - I appreciate your write. I meant to write, "and have never lit a cigarette SINCE that time," not "in that time," but I do believe you understood my intended meaning, without this explanation...Eve

This is so cleverly written. Usually we end with a smile when we do the hokey pokey. Like the expression; do you think that someone stepped on her foot? Ouch! or probably substance abuse addiction? That would be bad. I hope she did turn herself around in either case.

Ha, good one you two. I can see why this charming fiveseventyfive won, as it is clear and does elicit a chuckle.

Great job with this. :)
