A Cause For Concern

It is how they do
the one or the other
nominate, second
and compete,

that way turns the tussle
with dearth of entries
withdrawal of members
from contributing,

an unexpected situation
exposing less interest,
lesser understanding,
an unfriendly attitude,

these seen in a micro location,
in course, will extend
to the macro, resulting
to a closure of avenues,

a phenomenon found
in mega levels, pushing
literary ambitions to nadir
one cause for concern.
