    Great remix! I had to have your poem & the original up at the same time & compare lines to appreciate exactly how clever this is!✅

    Rule breaker, sir! If I wasn't such a bad stickler for the rules myself, I'd have to disqualify you, but I'd be being a massive hypocrite and love that you let creativity and inspiration take you where it wanted to go! Thank you for entering and well done on such a cool piece! Really fine work, Kendall!
