Exploring the world of comic strips through vague Japanese poetry.

February 23, 2006

The content on this page is solely created by you, the viewers, so if you want to see more, you'll have to contribute something yourself.

  1. Haikus are a form of poetry that consists of three lines with five, seven, then five syllables on each respective line. For example...

    Rockwood is in space (5 syllables)
    On a circular station (7 syllables)
    Looking down on Earth (5 syllables)

    Obviously, that's pretty boring, but technically correct. Try to do more than just count syllables. Be creative!

  2. The haiku you submit doesn't necessarily have to have Rockwood mentioned in it, but it would be nice if it related to something in the site somehow, whether it be space-related or just pertaining to a topic brought up elsewhere.

On with the haikus!

Haiku number one, while entertaining, is technically incorrect...

Problem number one:
Eighteen OG's burned in hate.
Takes 4*point*5 days.

Problem number two:
With every FSME,
IQ nears zero

Scales may be balanced
If you add one Johnny Weir,
Don't forget his vest.

Problem number three:
Not too much of a challenge
Just turn screen over.


Haiku number two gets Haiku of the Week for correctly answering a question...

That Pavarotti
song the Russian skated to
It's "Nessun Dorma."
