    After trying (and arguably failing) last night to try and create a poem about #Soop I wondered if anybody on the forum was feeling in a poetic mood. I soon forgot and ended up listening to an IGN podcast instead. In said podcast there's a feature called "Haiku Corner".

    I'm not very experienced at making Haikus or any form of poetry for that matter, but i thought we could all give it a try.
    For those who don't know, A Haiku takes the form of three sentences. The first sentence has 5 syllables, the second has 7, and the last has 5 again. (Syllables are the segments of a word, Hello, for example has Two syllables.)
    As the topic description says "Any topic's relevant". By the way I'm making these up as I go so bear with me.

    Tiger Woods Scandal:
    Golfer found new holes
    Wife found out and made him pay
    Says sorry today.

    I've probably done something wrong, never mind.
    HAIKU!

    We love it really.

    Obama:
    First black president
    Spoke only of change for good
    Healthcare on his mind.


    Just had an idea, if you're currently playing a game that you are enjoying (or not) why not write a review in Haiku?

    C.O.P:
    Looks slightly next gen
    Controls like a broken car
    Too painful to play

    Whenever I need to make a poem for school, I haiku. It's quick and easy.

    I don't like haiku's.
    They are complex and awkward.
    Why do you haiku?


    ...Wait, what?

    Haikus are easy.
    Just make them 5-7-5.
    Damn. I fail.

    a haiku can rhyme
    but doesn't necessitate
    rhyming all the time

    Haikus really suck
    Because they all put limits
    On syllables used

    You're all too rule-struck
    The five-seven-five idea
    It's just a guideline
