Turns out that unbeknownst to me, I was runner up. Here is my poem:
It’s not universally acceptable to say how much you enjoy things,
Much more popular to point at problems –
Proclaim preciecely when and where we got down trodden.
But friends can be frank so let us speak candid:
We all have more cause to thank than cause to panic.
And our calamaties, although inconvenient, are rarely titanic.
So – what shall we do with this habitual imbalance in our speech?
Well, it hardly requires a grand intelectual leap.
Maybe we just need to give nice things more attention,
A mention at least.
