Multiplayer Haiku Thread

Here's a haiku thread

Complain about Uncharted

But in haiku form

 

No need to complain

Just write about anything

But in haiku form

 

Keep it Uncharted

This isn't for Off-Topic

Keep in MPG

 

Trawnza, I hate you

When will you stop moving threads

To this dead section?

 

Format (reminder for those who don't know how to write haikus)

Top: five syllables

The middle row gets seven

Bottom: also five

First off, like memes, haiku have a proper form, and it's not to tell glaringly obvious stories or to rhyme.  That said, we ripped up the meme forms, so have at it any way you like.

Distant idol gleams

Golden in the cordite air

Always out of reach

 

 

 

Large, beyond all scale

Taunting.  Haka shakes the ground

Rampant Doughnut Drake




The Biggest Lies

5.) The hats aren't the surprise.
4.) Mods knows what they're doing.
3.) It doesn't fit the world paradigm.
2.) I'm not in it for the money.
1.) The player pool will be consolidated.

This is a great idea... watch it blow up in popularity.

 

Contributing myself: (Let me know if I've messed this up, I'm terrible at poetry)

 

It is a huge mess

Destroying teammates, causing distress 

Revenge, what a mess

Death beyond the wall

Ten yard pull down.  Quick grenade.

You can not win.  Lag.

I capture the hill

And then I go for the kill

And I use L1.

 

As I go behind

the player, I snap his neck

but he drops a 'nade.

C'mon. Not ANOTHER haiku thread.

 

Kidding. I thought about starting this exact thread a while ago after posting a few replies in haiku form, but I bailed. Kudos. 

 

Here are two past examples I posted (if I'm remembering them correctly)

 

Detested gun mod

makes forumers heads explode

M9 Rate of Fire

 

Successful stealth kill

But green triangle fails me

Revenge strikes again

These are really, really good. I thought you were an engineer of some sort. What's with the sudden literary flair, Shakespeare?

 

I mean, "gleams / Golden in the cordite air"? Nice.

I am an engineer, by profession, but I wrote a lot of poetry when I was a teenage geek wishing women would like me... :smileywink:

Village of Desert,
high ground to some you bequeath
obscene advantage.

Come, grasp the idol,
come, teammate, let us win gold!
O! A teamkill; DRAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAKE!!

By the spawn points of
yore, let us not spawn safely,
let us spawn in death!

Upon thee, Smoke Bomb
I call, upon thee Smoke Bomb,
I trust! O, Traitor!
