    All those master, mediocre and miserable haikuists out there, your time has come! Post your haikus related in some way to kag and tell other players your woes and victories through the art of this awesome Japanese poetry.

    For those new to haikus, don't be scared off as anyone can write a haiku-they are essentially just three lines with the first line having 5 syllables, the second having 7 and the third having 5 also, they don't need to rhyme. e.g.-

    The noob has no luck,
    He has been gibbed many times,
    By the mighty pro

    Your haiku does not have to follow these syllable rules but what makes a good haiku is simplicity, a paragraph won't do. If you see a great haiku, like it rather than comment on it as we want to keep this thread 90% actual haikus rather than people writing stuff about haikus. Feel free to post more than one haiku and if you want you could link it to the haiku above yours to express your opinion of it :wink:

    This is purely for fun so enjoy it ::):

    To start the thread off here is one of my haikus:

    There once was a hat,
    That made you look like a twat,
    Made from the hair of a guards cat.

    //EDIT by FBB: made this into the general poetry thread, rather than have several different threads floating about. Just make sure the poems are at least vaguely related to KAG.

    Haikus are so gay
    I haven't got much to say
    I quite like haikus

    Builders are so shit
    Who put the doors on the ground
    please don't open them

    Bombjumping knight! ban!
    he is clearly a hacker
    'cause archer no fly

    Oh look an archer
    Sit in his tower all day
    No way to counter

    The slash of a blade,
    Crystal clarity pervades,
    The blood-lust Blossoms.

    Builders tunneling
    Back of base
    KAG is like that

    His adversary dead

    Something tells me you don't know how to write a haiku.

    Gave it a go. If it's wrong, it's wrong and that's fine by me.
     
  8. Something tells me you don't know how to read the OP. :P

    Now for something that happens to me quite regularly.

    Prepares to block slash
    Hit by fiend with the high ping
    Goes on a nice trip

    I disagree with the OP. I think a good deal of the fun in composing haikus comes from following these restrictions.
    (I do agree that we should have moar haikus though.)

    Haikus are not about syllables. Its an entirely different concept in japanese, its just syllable is the closest english language analogy we have.

    Good day sir you dunce
    my haikus are so legit
    you cannot deny

    If i were a guard,
    The world would be quite scarred But,
    I am not a guard.

    The admin was new,
    He had no clue what to do,
    So he spammed F3.

    There was once a builder
    On 0 spawn
    Who left open the door and killed us all

    Our admins
    So powerless and small
    To share there bans for one And all

    KAG Forums so huge and addictive
    Makes me want to read my 11 alerts to one and all

    There was a furious knight
    So stupid and dumb
    Who bombed the tower and killed us all

    The portals
    Noob builders building them all
    Loosing the game in less than 2 minutes

    Sorry if its not good my first time

    DeathArrow used all,

    And it killed us all.
