    Love the theme! My entry is a 12-line poem entitled "Refugee' From The Sea". It's supposed to be from the POV of a young mermaid(who H2O-style has legs when dry) who fled from the ocean into the human world in order to escape from the increasing pollution that mankind has caused to her home.

    If you pass by me on the street, I look like any other girl,
    So you would never guess that I came from a whole other world.
    You have no idea how much it hurts to be so far away from my home,
    When the only momento I have left of my birthplace is my favorite seashell comb.

    I had no other choice but to leave everything that I ever knew behind,
    Because of all the environmental damage and destruction that was unleashed by mankind.
    Being forced to live amongst you wasteful, greedy fools is sometimes enough to make me feel sick,
    Especially every time I see a grocery bag made of plastic!

    Only when I'm alone in my pool can I feel even remotely free,
    And close my eyes and pretend I'm back where I belong, in the sea.
    Maybe some day it will be safe for me to return,
    But I sincerely doubt it, since humankind still has so much to learn.

    Crap, I'm sorry guys. I totally forgot. I just opened the poll, and I'm extending the deadline to the 15th. Since I want people to be able to vote for things that have been submitted after the thread was created, the way it will work is you can vote for Entry #1, Entry #2, and so on. Each entry is numbered by the order it was submitted, so the poem Princess Kae-Leah submitted is Entry #1, and the photo Star submitted is Entry #2. Anyone who submits something after this will be Entry #3, and the one after that will be Entry #4, and so on.

    Also, just to be clear, the deadline is being pushed back to the 15th.

    Thanks for your patience with this whole thing. I'm sorry I'm not more professional about it. Although I'm really learning, and I think I have a much better idea how I'm going to run the next challenge.

    Here is my entry... So... # 3?


    Melissa, also known as Little Orca or Merlissa, does not know what to make of the gift her fiancée has given her. "What do I do with these?" she asks with a look of confusion on her face.

    Entry #5
    I can't put the photo up, (long story) but it was me, in a tail, sitting in a chair by a highway holding up a cardboard sign that said, "Long Way From Home. Need $$$$ for bus ticket."

    I had a very cute idea for this contest but my tail is about a week from being finished.
