"Seven Pounds" Poll

The answer to the "Seven Pounds" poll is "WSMOV" for "William Shakespeare's Merchant of Venice." In the Bard's play, a Jewish usurer, Shylock, contractually obligates a merchant named Antonio to forfeit "a pound of flesh" should he not be able to repay his debt by a certain deadline. In the movie, Will Smith's character decides to surrender seven "pounds" of his flesh in lieu of seven debts that he feels can never repay.
