"Write an original folk tale or fable in 99 words." + "Make it 'Western' themed." "Write three stanzas of five lines, each with a syllable count of 6/5/11/6/5, totaling 99 syllables, no more—no less." + "Include five (consecutive) words taken from the found-poem by Cowboy Poet, Charles Badger Clark, called 'The Springtime Plains.'"
