|Message:||What a rackett. I wrote one of the dumbest poems about two of the dumbest people , I know ( and love) and I’m a stinkin’ geniuse, in their eyes. Check it out. First my poem and then their reply. Any you just thought Mickey was good.
There once was a pilot that flew through the air.
DDT, he dropped every where.
The bugs they did die, and so did the people.
They’re buried around back, behind the big steeple.
A lawyer was hired because charges were filed.
Loads of paper work, to the ceiling was piled.
The pilot was Bud , the lawyer was Bill.
And in the courts they’re a fightin’ it still.
If I had more time I’d finish this song.
But I’m afraid it might get a bit long.
Besides, what song could be more of a “dud”.
Than a lawyer named Bill and a pilot named Bud.
A personal note from the desk of:
Howard Ely, Managing Editor
Not long ago, our Editors reviewed the thousands of submissions entered in our International Open Amateur Poetry Contest, and they awarded your poem the prestigious Editor's Choice Award. This is an honor awarded to only 12% of the submissions we receive. Now that the first round of the judging process is complete, your poem will enter the next level of judging, becoming eligible for the $10,000 Annual Grand Prize that will be awarded in January 2008. We wish you the best of luck with this next phase of the contest.
Since we announced the names of the winners, many recipients have contacted me and requested a way to display their achievement; therefore, I put our artists and designers to work. We were able to create our most exquisite and distinguished wall plaque ever. This year, we are offering this limited edition wall plaque commemorating your achievement as an Editor's Choice Award recipient. Each certificate is numbered, signed, and mounted on a solid maple plaque. This beautiful display piece truly honors your accomplishment!
As an Editor's Choice Award winner, we're sure you'll want to improve your craft and further your involvement in poetry. There's no better way to do that than by joining the International Society of Poets (ISP), the largest poetry organization in the world.

The plaque and membership are individually valued at $135.00, but today you can order them together for $75.00 (plus $14.00 shipping & handling), which is a $60.00 discount off the regular retail price.
