    Apologies for posting this so early – I’ve been running around like crazy trying to get everything ready for the wedding (eeeee 26 days to go!). I wanted to make sure this got done, too, and I know it’s just going to get busier! So, without further ado, and with many thanks to Poe for letting me borrow his structure, I present:

    The Raffle

    Once upon a Monday bleary, while I labored, weak and weary,
    With a faint but noticeable hangover from the night before
    While I plodded, nearly sleeping, suddenly there came a beeping,
    From my cell phone, reminder bleeping, in my purse upon the floor
    “’Tis some alert,” I muttered, “A thing to do, of this I’m sure!”
    Only this and nothing more.”

    Ah, distinctly I moved over, it was in the cool October;
    And I rummaged through my purse for the cell phone I deplore
    Eagerly I wished to mute it;—vainly I had sought to root it
    From my purse that needed cleaning, messy, always, evermore—
    From the depths of my coach handbag, took the phone from out its core
    Set to snooze ten minutes more.

    And the silence, quite desired, trying hard to not get fired
    Bought another ten more minutes for things I needed done before;
    So that now, to still the beating of my heart, I stood repeating
    “Girl you got this, get that fax sent, then have a little coffee more!—
    Get through the day and then at 6pm you’re off and out the door;—
    Then you’ll get that poem done, sure.”

    Presently the day grew longer; and my nerves got nice and stronger,
    “Windstone Forum,” said I, truly your forgiveness I implore;
    But the fact is I had not won, when I agreed to get this poem done,
    But in the months that part us, a lovely Dragon came unto my door,
    And now I can win this raffle – nevermore
    All my windstones ever after must be purchased from the store.

    Woo! Well done! I love the mirroring you have to E.A. Poe’s The Raven. (After reading this I was totally recalling James Earl Jones’ narration of The Raven from The Simpsons Halloween episode…)

    Ooh – “Salem” definitely is a prize for Halloween lovers (and cat lovers). Good luck to people in both those groups!
