For US residents, today is “Tax Day”. (Although because of Emancipation Day - tomorrow - there is an extension until Monday to actually get your taxes in.)
Why am I bringing this seemingly random thing up in a post about voting?
Because we are paying a toll.
This was the first week without byes, without a safety net.
Which means anyone who misses the deadline is eliminated.
In this case, that means impoetry is leaving us.
Usually I’m sentimental. Not this time. *kicks Brian for such a hippie that he missed the deadline*
*kicks him one more time*.
Anyway - that’s one more spot forward for everyone else. Two more steps if you count that there is a sacrifice in this week’s poll. But that hasn’t officially happened yet, so let’s not get ahead of ourselves!
As for the rest of you - just because you are a little closer to the end, doesn’t mean you are safe.
The only thing “safe” about this week is that it’s safe to assume that you have some really good entries to read!
We are losing three contestants this week!
So make sure to read, comment and vote for your favorites! Then tell a friend to do the same!
The poll closes Monday, April 18th at 9pm EDT
Good luck to everyone!
