You can't pass this up. Read it!

All right, folks. You know that meme you see occasionally that says something like, "I'll make something nice for you in the next year if you repost this!"? This isn't that meme.

What this is, is an offer to write a poem for you. No reciprocation is necessary in any way, shape, or form. All you have to do is reply here. If you like, you may give me a challenge, such as to use a certain theme or form. You may leave a favorite quote, song lyric, or thought to inspire me. In the end, though, the final decision of what your poem will be, will be mines. (Yeah, I said "mines." Because I just roll like that.)

So, don't pass this offer up. How many people can say they've ever had a poem written either for them or about them, in their lifetimes? You could be one of those people.

As I watch the guppy fry swim about, hows about something aquatic.

I didn't reply sooner cuz this is the first time I've been online long enough to read LJ in a couple days.

I'd like something epic, not in length (unless you really want to) but in theme.

You have an excuse, in that you're all getting ready to get married and all that.

BTW, while I have you on the horn, is there anything else I should be doing as a groomsman? I feel like I'm shirking my duties, not that I even know what they are beyond showing up for the rehearsal and the actual wedding.

Not much going on now, but at the wedding you and Richy will be escorting the family to the front of the crowd for the ceremony. We'll go over it all at the rehearsal dinner on Friday the 24th, 6:00 PM at Turkey Swamp Park

I read through the comments on your poll about people not taking you up on this, and I see my response was echoed by a couple of other people. But... well, it's *your* energy you want to expend.

So, if the offer still stands, I'd be honored... even if I don't understand it. :) But if you decide the original offer is past due, I will understand that.
