An outright feeling of despair was of utmost concern
There was an attempt to provide some veiled assistance
Perhaps as a crutch to prop up the efforts
To present a better picture as was intended
The lacuna of such a measure was most apparent

Seen as an attempt
To give unfair advantage
Discarding fair play

(55 words)

A Limerick and a Haiku for Kerry's
Flash 55 Plus at Real Toads and to
include the word -  lacuna
