Poll: General Fund for August Polychrome Sale

I have finally finished posting poetry sponsored during the August sale.  \o/  The general fund donations from that, plus several bits left over from people's donations, added up to an amount with an awkward fraction.  Since some of the funds came from people who earned the quarter-price rate, and the sale was a stupendous success, I have decided to fix the fraction by multiplying by four and using the full prices.  This gives us whole numbers to work with.  Based on this, the general fund contains $151.50.

There are a lot of poems which cost less than that amount.  So I'm just going to list the eligible ones below, and give you checkboxes to vote with.  Mark however many poems you would like to see published.  (Preferably, don't mark all  of them; I need help whittling down the list.)  I will later use the information from this poll to make a shorter one with more specific choices.  Your options are likely to involve either one big poem, or 2-3 smaller ones.

Everyone is eligible to vote in this poll.  I will keep it open until at least Monday night.  If there's a clear answer then, I'll close it.  Otherwise I may leave it open longer.

These are the poems available for you to sponsor out of the general fund.  Which of these do you want me to put in a more specific poll?  Remember you can vote for several.
