Hmmm... I took the instructions (above) literally and wrote a poem that is UNDER 25 lines. Reading the comments, I'm wondering if perhaps it should have been precisely 20 lines? If so, maybe some clarification in the rules is in order.

Either way, I've put my hat in the ring. Thanks for hosting this challenge and giving us the opportunity to flex a little poetry muscle.
