Fairly simple, eh? Here's the kicker...

Here they are:
Remember there is no set structure or theme, so just try and get them all in there!
Here's my judging scale, fair and square.
Creative Merit: 10 points
(Good poems usually are written when the author takes time to write a good poem, does the poem have a point? moral? story? or is it just whining?)
Element: 10 points
(Metaphor, Rhyme, Allusion, Allegory, Format/Structure, Alliteration, Simile, Personification, etc. At least something, used, not overused.
Meter: 5 points
(A good poem is easy to read and the ideas flow well, simple, this is a poetic element, but crucial enough to hold it's own 5 points. Poets usually tank hard here)
Good luck, fellow rapscallions!
