SPU Poetry Contest #5: Announcement (& Winners of #4)
Before getting started, I want to introduce myself. I am @run-the-bits and I will be handling the contest in @poetrybyjeremy 's place. I recently jumped the gun on starting my own contest before really contributing enough to the community, so I am grateful for the opportunity to grow with SPU. Let's all continue to wish our former host well and show our gratitude by writing some more truly awesome poems this week!

I can't wait to read more of your work. This week, I've also donated 1.5 SBD divided equally among the winners and am donating 1 SBD to next week's first place winner. Congratulations to the three winners!
You all are familiar with this format. Choose one of the following options and write a poem inspired by the quote presented, a line from the quote or, possibly, the original poem. This week I'm highlighting a poem by @poetrybyjeremy, one from our second runner-up, and one of my own, which fatefully led me to SPU.
Enclosed within cool walls of concrete
through the only window, I peak,
grey skies crash above
flooding a valley so bleak.
how the quiet of a tree
is a better partner
for the articulate soul.
You should always take me seriously
As I rarely say things sarcastically
And I came up with a thought fantastically
That everyone should change so drastically
