Mister Ponderous shifts in his seat and raises his quill

then I shall laugh aloud and
most merrily
at the post award giving
ceremon’y seeing the faces
of the arbitration commission
when they assert that from
five thousand petitions
they have chosen the one
which shows the most quality

He makes a note with a flourish
Submit, The Premier’s Poetry Competition. He pats the old three legged dog at his feet, and with the prize I think I shall buy a brand new toupee.
