BJ, I was so impressed that you wrote a poem using the word 'incontinent' without resorting to potty humor. In a competition like this, I know it is tempting to go for the easy laugh in an effort to win over students - I appreciated that you made an effort to feed something beautiful into kids' minds. Great job. And did you see Jane Yolen's comment on your poem? I'd be doing the happy dance ALL DAY!!
