Everyone who did submit a piece is a poet, and that tells why they would have all won should the contest had gone their way; their way because:
A number of the poets worked outside the stated rules as minor as NOT MORE THAN 14 LINES.
We saw lines best described as PROSAIC Poetry – the lines were more prosaic that poetic.
At the expense of context (topical relevance), some were too rhyme conscious.
Some finest lines ever read were totally unconcerned with the given topic – PASSION
You see it doesn’t mean that you are not good for not winning it all? Just a little more effort, heart on instructions driven by a balanced focus, stardom awaits YOU!
