|First, let me thank all the participants in the recent Roses Are Red... poetry contest. They were all great submissions, and we are all winners just for having participated. Also, thanks to those who submitted votes. That way, I can't be held accountable for the outcome. But without further ado, I would like to announce the winner as... Andrew with his deeply insightful (although slightly rule bending) poem about the darker side of the giving of flowers. I look forward to doling out the prize. Speech! Speech! Speech!
It is heart-warming to see that BdW democracy functions just like American democracy; just because a candidate chooses to bend the rules a little doesn't mean that he/she can't win the support of the people.
Anyway, thanks again to all contributors. (Next poetry challenge will be a sonnet written in iambic pentameter form. Study up!)

Wow. I mean, wow. I just don't even know what to say. I'd like to thank everyone who voted for me, believed in me, or otherwise supported me during those rocky couple of seconds that it took to write my poem. Lord knows there were times that I didn't think I could persevere. But with a little help from some supportive friends (specifically my main man and muse, Robert Pinsky), I was able to create one of the most beautiful pieces of prose ever to grace this crazy thing known as "the internet". Thank you all again. Words can never express my debt of gratitude I feel towards you all. THIS ONE IS FOR YOU GRETCHEN! WE DID IT BABY! WOOOO!

I suppose this falls under the category of things I can't complain about since I didn't vote. Freakin' democracy.
