Red Barn's Limerick
Snowgod has wasted our time,snowgod's Limerick:
But his wasting is not worth a dime.
For I've caused quite a fury,
Of eyes being blurry,
And say that the record is mine.
A player who's name was quite fineOn Jan 25 the results were posted. Initially it appeared snowgod won 8 to 7, but upon the discovery of an illegal vote by the Evil Ballot Stuffer, it was found to be a tie, 7 to 7, so Red Barn won due to having posted his Limerick first.

T'was a treasure hunter so lame/dev/joe's Limerick:
Despite his undeserved fame
Desperate for clues
Goads me into these duels
When he should be watching Parades
Malenkai buried lots of stuffAt Sun, 2 Feb 1997 03:15:18 +0200 (EET) the results were posted.
With no maps and clues that were tough.
The numbers he's teasin'
Have no rhyme or reason
And I think they're nothing but guff.

Soon I'll have recovered
A prize for a poem of grace.

I, posting a duel verse that claims
a prize for a listing of names,

revising my poem
and sending it to acka-games.
