Poetry Coming Up

The first general fund poll has settled on sponsoring the batch of sub-epic poetry.  Conveniently, one of the sub-epics ("Mismatchmakers") had only a single vote, so that's the one not getting published, and you get all the others.  I will get started on posting those poems, then see about making a followup poll for the remaining funds.
