    'Thee-Arch Con-Test'
    Oh how ludicrous the fee,
    Guessing contests aren't for free.
    Dare I invite every one
    But my contest is for fun.
    Put first prize to this effect:
    You shall win your self respect
    Second Prize: What you have won...
    To beat all; except for One.
    Last, but definitely not First
    Third Price means you weren't the worst.
    Everyone's a winner here
    The best contest of the year.
    With thee lowest, lowest fee
    Oh, you thought it was for free?!
    I was joking, free it is...
    Contests are for CON-TEST-TENTS!
    Especially if its a fee.
    Poets from the land of FREE.
