"Common Waters"
A DW prompt inspired the sea chantey "Common Waters," written in double-ballad form with refrains in the 2-4 lines.  You could seriously haul rope in time to this song.  It talks about life on the waves and the importance of cooperation.

"Unfit Proxies"
This contributed to the free-verse poem "Unfit Proxies."  A bunch of disaffected people decide to populate their own islands and do things differently.
88 lines, Buy It Now = $44 In microfunding now

People had tried all manner
of governments, and most of those
pleased most of their citizens
most of the time.

However, there were always
some people who found themselves
displeased by any kind of government
