Generally Sponsored Poetry Poll for December 2011

It's time to pick poetry for sponsoring.  The general fund currently contains $32.  There are two $5 poems left: "The Leaning of Life" and "Sundrops."  There are two $10 poems left: "The Evolution of Perception" and "Haunted Gatherers."  There are three $15 poems left: "The Curse of Titania's Table," "The Fountainhead of the Wisdom of Food," and "The Luckpot." 

There are two epics from this session: "Chamomile and Honeycrack" (Path of the Paladins, $62) and "This Bittersweet Weed" ($37).  You can read thumbnails for these in the unsold poetry list.  If "Chamomile and Honeycrack" gets $13, that will reveal six verses; if it gets all $32, that will reveal 16 verses (out of 28).  If "This Bittersweet Weed" gets $13, that will reveal seven verses; if it gets all $32, that will reveal 13 verses (out of 16).  There is also one open poem, "The Inescapable Agony of Being."  If "The Inescapable Agony of Being" gets $2, it won't reveal another verse yet; next verse is $4, so that would bring the level down to $2.

Everyone is eligible to vote in this poll.  The first question in the poll deals with distribution of funds into price categories.  Later questions select specific poems, based on which way the first question falls.  Please answer all the questions.  I will check this poll Sunday evening.  If there is a clear winner then, I'll close it and post the poetry.  Otherwise I may leave it open a little longer.
