Generally Sponsored Poetry Poll for January 3, 2012

You have $55 to spend.  There is one $10 poem left: "Bittersweet Preserves" (Fiorenza the Wisewoman).  There is one $15 poem: "Pandora's Gift."  There is one $20 poem: "Princess in Shadows" (The Ocracies).  You can cover all THREE of these shorter poems and still have $10 left over for microfunding!  There are two epics left: "Bringing Down the Blaggards" for $88 and "Grit and Grace" for $48 (Path of the Paladins). 

There are also two poems currently in microfunding.  "The Inescapable Agony of Being" is science fiction about aliens passing as human; it needs $12 to be fully funded.  "The Morose Mascot" belongs to the fantasy series The Adventures of Aldornia and Zenobia, in which Amaia Thornestele's familiar runs away from home.  It needs $53 to be fully funded.

First, decide how you want to divide the funds across whole poems and microfunding.  Then decide the specifics for the microfunding.  I will check this poll Saturday evening, and close it if there's a clear winner; if not, I may leave it open a bit longer.
