Even A Poetaster Tries - Poem by Edwin Tanguma

What is the big deal
About a poetry contest
Who can really judge
About who is really the best

For whom is to judge
Every poem is beautiful
They are like snowflakes
Each is a jewel

Some are more complex
And difficult to understand
For it all depends
On the skill of a poet's hand

Some hands are firmer
They abide by established forms
Then there are others
Who demolish all of the norms

Yet it all depends
All upon the poem taster
Who have had their fill
Of the mighty poetaster

One thing that I've found
Even a poetaster tries
They too are winners
Seeking someone to hear their cries

When judging poems
There's one thing you should keep in mind
Behind each poem
Beats a heart that is truly kind
