KFC Poetry Contest 

Well, I got another load of pulp wood taken in yesterday. Now we can get some more of Laura;s medicine. She has been without 3 or the 4 she is on for over a week now. So, it's been pretty rough lately. But, this will help. I should be able to get another one in next week and get one more prescription. Man, that stuff is expensive. Any help right now would definitely be appreciated.

Anyway, enough about my problems. Let's go to something a little more interesting and exciting. The contest.

Now, this seems like it will be a lot of fun. I got this alert in my inbox this morning from PETA. They are having a contest that I thought would be fun to post here. I thought that some of you might like to participate. If you decide to do so, I would love it if you would send me a copy. If you would like to have yours posted, then also let me know and if so, how you would like it to be credited.

Now, on to the details:

This past May, Alice Walker sent a poem to David Novak, the CEO of KFC's parent company, imploring him to improve the treatment of the nearly 800 million chickens who are raised and killed each year for KFC restaurants.

Inspired by her example, PETA is encouraging all poets (and aspiring poets) to send us their own anti-KFC poems. The best entries will receive an autographed copy of Alice Walker's poem and all serious entries will receive a free anti-KFC celebrity poster.

For details on the contest or to read Ms. Walker's poem, go to this site

See, doesn't that sound like fun? So, write them up and send them in. Then, shoot me off a copy, and if you want it shared, you will see it here. We could even have our own little vote for the best one submitted to this site. What do you think?

Let's have fun with this, okay? :)
