The Guilty Crown

At our age the imagination

   across the sorry facts

      lifts us

to make dere

   stand before yan.


   love is old

      and hackneyed

and totally trite—

   at least, slave to demographics,

      animated love is.

But we are older,

I to blog

   and you to be dissected,

we have,

   through cruel luck,

      by our wills survived

as NEETs

   the boxed prize


at our finger tips.

We will it so

   and so it is

      past all accident.

With apologies to William Carlos Williams.

Perhaps no statement better underscores the potential for corruption, miscalculation, and misrule inherent in the Aniblog Tourney’s systems – systems that Tournament official mefloraine acknowledges will take quite some time to reset by hand. Amid jokes about “voting early and often,” other bloggers raised more fundamental questions of validity: is the entire tournament just a big “circle jerk” in a closed population?



When is a buildup too long?
