Based on our latest (and only!) poll, you guys chose the Emo Poetry contest. So that’s what we’re doing, but with a twist: This contest is for Emo Haiku.
First off, familiarize yourself with the format of this evocative Japanese poetic form. For this is what you’ll be submitting, in exchange for possible E-Peen™ and Brownie Points.
We’re sticking to the traditional 17-syllable, three-line format (5/7/5). It should be descriptive, evocative, literal and non-rhyming. We’re not going to be strict about punctuation, references to a season or deliberate use of contrast, but it should still be reasonably pbumable as a real haiku — except extremely emo and hilariously depressing in nature.
You may submit a maximum of three haiku in this thread. That’s three per player, not per character. You can tweak entries later, but the substance of it should not change dramatically.
The haiku must be your original creation (obvi). By submitting in this thread, you are allowing us to use your intellectual property in any way we see fit, such as in a future Emo Kid attack. Log in to see images!
Creators of the top ten emo-ku, as chosen by the Forumwarz Judging Team (Poetry Division), will get a special E-Peen™ for their contributions. Note that super-awesome-u poets might end up getting multiple haiku in the top ten, thus screwing up your chances. Such is life!
Creator of the absolute BEST emo-ku will get 7 Brownie Points. And the two runners-up, of course, will receive 5 Brownie Points each. Mmm, oishii.
We will end the contest Sunday, June 22 at 2:00 p.m. Until then, good ruck-uru!Jalapeno Bootyhole edited this message on 06/21/2008 7:40PM
