icon DROD Haiku Contest (+1)  
A while back during a slow news period for DROD.net, I was going to hold a DROD Haiku contest. I decided against it because I didn\'t have anything to offer as an award, and I doubted I\'d get very many submissions.

So... We\'re going to hold the contest here on the forum... with prizes!
--------------------

haiˇku - (\'hI-(\")kü) : noun
Etymology: Japanese
Date: 1902
Definition: An unrhymed verse form of Japanese origin having three lines containing usually 5, 7, and 5 syllables respectively;

--------------------

Guidelines:

- Follow the 5, 7, 5 Syllable format.
- Keep Haikus DROD-related.
- Don\'t submit any more than 3 Haikus.
- Submit your Haiku to this board only!

On March 1st I\'ll close this thread and organize the submitted Haikus. Then I\'ll set up a poll for voting.

Alright then, I\'ll start us off:

His blade, large, mighty
Beethro Budkin, Smitemaster
Squash the tiny roach

- Clayton Weiss

Have fun, kids!

What? We can do better than that!

To the winner, I offer the prize of either a DROD coffee mug or a DROD mousepad, whichever the poet\'s heart desires.

The tar mother blinks
Tar spreads to trap Smitemasters
And babies are born

Roaches are stupid
Simple corners will stump them
Except if brains help

My 2nd Haiku:

Room nearly complete
But safe in a blocked corner
One tar baby lives

Number two:

Goblin jumps around
Avoiding Beethro\'s sharp sword
Until trapped on wall

Trapped in a dark room
in a hack and slash puzzle
world. My brain hurts.

Here is my first attempt. This is actually a little puzzle at the same time, so I will set up a new topic to take replies and solutions to this.

Face West, Five North-East,
One South, Four West, One North-East
Two East. Die. Which Rooms?
