A countdown

Begins, there are

Chances to win.

Do enter, it's

Easy peasy as ABC's.

Fourteen hours left, so

Give it a go.

Have a computer.

Ideas will flow.

Just write what you


List thoughts

Memories with

Nothing to lose.

Onwards and upwards.

Please be


Right or wrong

Submit that

Typed poem. Express your


Voice with

Words from A to Z. Don't forget


Yes, let your

Zany humor show.


Author's notes: My inspiration came from the Vocal email at 9:15 AM. Thank you for reading! You are appreciated!
