So how about a competition? Specifically a POEM competition
Write a POEM for Pax about Pax (or Aussie things) - it can be nice, it can be snarky - don't make it too rude.
Must be PG-13! (if you feel that using a rude word is required then bleep it out - let's think of the potential that one day my Mum might read this)
You do NOT need to be a regular reader of this blog to enter (sniffle... but you COULD stick around and read more - just saying)
You can be from anywhere in the world.
If you win - you will need to supply me with a mailing address. I promise to hold the information safely and never share it beyond my Post Office.
If you leave your entry under the "Anonymous" tag - please be sure to add your name or nickname at the bottom so I can track you down later should you win.
If you find that Blogger won't let you post a message or worse - it disappears into the ether - then email me directly (you can find my e address under my profile)
The Winner will need to contact me by the 10th of October 2012 at the latest with their mailing address or there will be a redraw.
The Winning Poem will be judged on or about the 30th of September by an independent judge (ie. not me since I luvs ya all and have a hard time picking one over the other)
And the prize.... is something Aussie military (natch!)

It is quite heavy... but oh so pretty. [Australian Army Rising Sun insignia on the front - Australian flag & slouch hat on the reverse]
If you are looking for inspiration then check out Coffeypot's earlier creations HERE. Coffeypot isn't eligible to win since I have already sent off one of these to him for his prior poetic poppings but he can (and hopefully will) make comments on the other entries.
