I sent this to license-approval at, and I thought it might be
agood idea to post it here too.
I'd like to submit a license entitled "The Poetic License" for OSI approval.
The text of the license is available at

This license is basically an admonishment of copyright, and bears most
resemblance to the simplicity of the BSD license. It is compatible with all
other OSI-approved (and non OSI-approved licenses) because any software
covered by it can be relicensed.

I don't mind this being discussed openly on the license-approval mailing
