Likely Loser

I’ve read the words of the winners of this year’s Poetry Contest,

the words that reaped $3,000 in winnings for first prize.

Yeah, mine would likely never win,

Certainly not nearly as obtuse or just plain weird enough.

I like my poetry as I like my burgers,

grilled, salted, a little cheese, with no gold leaf and truffle oil.
