Vote for me!

Hello all,

I have been nominated for Poet Laureate of the Blogosphere (which in turn has been nominated for the most ridiculous title on earth). Just kidding (about the second part); I am actually honored, and tickled that such a novice as myself would be nominated next to someone like Ron Silliman (but then again, all it takes is one mischievous vote for the nomination--and I swear it wasn't mine).

So, now that I am on the chopping block, won't you please vote (for me, or for someone worthier... Of course, I'd love to boast such a silly title on my blog, but that's just me). And since no one, as JoseyWales suggested, is expecting you to vote "just cuz he's Lebanese", and because clicking on the link just to the right of this is too tedious, here is a link to my blog where you can find about 4-years worth of poetry so you can judge for yourself:

The place to vote is: http://poetisphere.com/

Please cast your vote by April 30th; that's when the voting will end and the winner will be announced. (This should be fun!) And thanks for indulging me!

Thanks, Ahmad & Eve! This is feeling like "Superstar", except not as exciting, or super! LOL!

Ashraf Osman, you got my vote ;) Is that right your name or am I voted for another one :|

That is right; not that many Lebanese names on that list anyhow :)

How about a poem or a link to one?

Or should we vote for this guy just cuz he's Lebanese?

We could then go back to curse sectarian fools who vote for X because he is one of them. ;)

No one is expecting you to vote because I'm Lebanese! You could have scrolled down on that same page I linked to in the post, clicked on my name, and that would have taken you to my blog where you can find about 4-years worth of poetry. But you are right, I should have provided that link in the post above. So I will fix that promptly; thank you for bringing it to my attention.

Thx Arch,

I also did not realize you were the same as Poet Ashraf.

Shukran, rat! (I wish I could type back in Arabic, but I don't have the keyboard or the operating system...)

حظ سعيد

when arch replied to adam, saying there aren't many Lebanese candidates on that page, he was not calling for a sectarian voting, just clarifying adam's confusion about his real name (sorry to barge in, Arch :) ). In the end, all contestants are welcomed to campaign for themselves, but too bad for them, it's a Lebanese forum.
