First Jackdaw's Nest of 2009 Is Up

I swear, I just clicked on the One Minute Writer with the intention of asking, "Who does a girl have to sleep with to get this award?"

(I know I'm not a writer, but still...)

Previously inspired by your favorite poem post, I "lifted" a theme from an obscure Irish Poet, Patrick Kavanagh. His poem, Prelude, is the first poem I ever understood as a young girl.

I had to recite a poem in school. Prelude, was my selection. Just to guarantee I received "A", I did so with an Irish accent.

I got an "F". Wait, maybe it was my mothers favorite poem I recited. It began, "Baby Jesus was not proud...." Dear God.

Congratulations on winning the One Minute Writer Award.

However, inquiring minds and all that, just whom were you willing to have slept with in order to have won? Alphabetically or in order of preference, which you prefer, will be fine.

I also remain eagerly awaiting information about the dowry goats.

I'm an Irish Catholic. I must wait until marriage.

I could probably afford a couple of goats. I will probably marry an old one.

Is that a proposal?

Of course.

Very well. Upon receipt of the dowry goats, I will sweep you off your feet (if my back can stand it) and carry you away to a life of goatherding, kielbasa, and jam-making.
