"Seven bums and fourteen legs,
a brazen ecstasy which begs
the question some of us are asking -
is Peter Goulding multi-tasking?"

Free poetry contest shock horror

Twice a year the Tapestry of Bronze runs a poetry competition dedicated to a particular Greek or Roman deity. I have entered the past two and got nowhere. I believe that David Mohan won the last one (is there any competition that he enters, that he doesn't win?)
This Fall (as they say on the website) the task is to write a poem about Athena or Minerva, who apparently are one and the same. A schizophrenic deity, eh? Should be fun.
In the Spring, the competition was about Mercury or Hermes (another split personality) and whereas I didn't win, I now feel confident enough to answer a question on him on Mastermind and might even throw in a reference to him in some other poem, if I feel pretentious enough.
Anyhow, the details of this FREE competition to come second behind David are here

  1. You know, you're not actually a poet (so it seems) unless you can toss in a few mythology references. Better still, an allusion to one of Homer's works will seal the deal! Doh!
