Rewarding times for those who took the time to earn the rewards - the chiasmus challenge results

I loved @fabiyamada's creative images that I just had to find another use for it somewhere, and I thought it would be nice to use it to announce the winners of the chiasmus challenge from a week ago:
https://steemit.com/makesteemitgreat-again/@plushzilla/the-proof-that-he-is-right-is-to-write-and-prove-him-wrong-the-chiasmus-challenge

I know that it is not easy to get participation in new writing contests, and thanks to @moneyinfant's writing contest list I was very happy to have almost ten entries to select from.

So in no particular order, the three chiasmuses that I thought best represented the theme of Steemit are:

@figuringoutsrn

write quality content if you want to get noticed.
notice quality content if you want to write.

@darkmayhem

we have no rights left, all we have left is our ability to write (right) the wrongs they have done against us.

@artgirl

Broken heart for my real friends
And real heart for my broken friends

All three received 0.15 SBD from @fibrefox's account:

Thanks much! Here’s my entry:

Steem is full of bots and the bots are full of steam.

A very appropriate chiasmus for what many people feel about Steemit at the moment... I hope we can muster enough human power to change that soon :)

Hi there, hope it didn't offend. For some reason, I was fixated on the bots when I was working on this. I was kind of having fun with the word. I think the best way to look at the bots is with some humor. @kirkins had to set me straight yesterday, for example, on how paid advertising works here :) And if you want a good laugh, check out this post from @xomegax. It's pretty funny: https://steemit.com/introduceyourself/@xomegax/experiment#@laurawhite/re-xomegax-experiment-20180327t031640472z

I know, right? It's good stuff. I don't think I had any automated bots respond to my introduceyourself post, so it took me awhile to make their acquaintance :)

Cool challenge idea! I love a good chiasmus. :D You got some neat entries as well. :)

Here's mine.
Mine's here. Lol.. No.. That's not it.
It's not that.
Here we go, we go here.
Love is all, all is love.

You could put that as a poem in IFC :D There is something about a nice chiasmus that makes things sound better, but there is also an art to making it sound nice too. Thanks for the entry!

Agreed! :) You know.. As weird as this sounds, I had been doing wordplay like that for YEARS and I always loved those thigns, but I never knew what they were called until the other day when I saw either your post or someone elses. I think it was yours. And now I know what to call these cool things! Lol.. There's definitely something interesting about a good chiasmus! It's weird how language works like that sometimes and how you can rearrange the order to make such messages!
