Poem: "A Hole in the Blanket"

This poem began with my post about "Always Chaotic Evil" races in fantasy, which led to marina_bonomi's thoughtful discussion, and between us we came up with the core ideas for this piece of "sword and soul."

This microfunded poem is being posted one verse at a time, as donations come in to cover them. The rate is $.50/line, so $5 will reveal 10 new lines, and so forth. There is a permanent donation button on my profile page, or you can contact me for other arrangements. You can also ask me about the number of lines per verse, if you want to fund a certain number of verses.
So far sponsors include: marina_bonomi, Anthony & Shirley Barrette

138 lines, Buy It Now = $69
Amount donated = $15
Verses posted = 5 of 25

Amount remaining to fund fully = $54
Amount needed to fund next verse = $2
Amount needed to fund the verse after that = $2.50
