You know what we haven't done in a while? CB575! (in Contests)


QBBarzooMonkey October 18 2008 9:40 PM EDT

We haven't had a haiku/senryu contest in a long, long, long time, so shall we? I think we shall. :)
Write me your best Haiku or Senryu. This edition's subject(s) will be:

Autumn and/or,
Monkeys and/or,
Carnage Blender today vs. a year ago and/or,
th00p! and/or,
All of the above (which would be truly impressive)...

Rules:
1. Multiple entries are allowed.
2. PG people!
3. Don't be insulting to any individuals. I'll ask, and even be willing to pay an admin to remove your post if you do.
4. Deadline for submission is midnight Friday/Saturday 10/24-25 (server time)

1st, 2nd and 3rd place prizes will be of a typical BarzooFabulousness, I just haven't figured out exactly what they will be just yet!

I'll pick a winner next Monday 10/27 at noon (server time)

Game on!

Oh, and here's a little refresher:

Haiku: A Japanese lyric verse form having three unrhymed lines of five, seven, and five syllables, traditionally invoking an aspect of nature or the seasons.
Senryu: Japanese form of short poetry similar to haiku in construction. However, senryu tend to be about human foibles while haiku tend to be about nature, and senryu are often cynical or darkly humorous while haiku are serious. Senryu do not need to include a kigo, or season word, like haiku.

Fall comes once per year
Sweet repose of the chilled air
Leaves fall bringing change

Lochnivar October 18 2008 10:18 PM EDT

I remember liking haiku.... or was that Hakai?
Regardless... I think I will enter this more than once, but for now:

Curling and Gilded,
Gloriously they decay.
Transcendent beauty.

Befouled by monkey-wrenches.

Autumn monkeys and
th00p dance around the Carnage
of a Blender's past.

th00p October 20 2008 10:06 PM EDT

Oh pitiful fools,

Just praise the Barzoo!

I don't expect to win.

Tyriel [123456789] October 22 2008 12:27 AM EDT

Oh silly th00pie,
some of us want to use all
four of the topics.

th00p October 22 2008 10:48 PM EDT

Leaves cascading,
Spiraling down to the ground,
Finally fall's here!

QBJohnnywas October 23 2008 8:10 AM EDT

Leaves red and gold
Standing under empty sky
Everything has gone.

Leaves red and gold
Standing under empty sky
The wheel turns again.

Lochnivar October 23 2008 11:45 AM EDT

meh.. hardly on topic but...

Haiku or Hakai?
Simple prose or complex charms?
Which one won't talk back?

th00p October 24 2008 12:56 PM EDT

Autumn, Monkeys, th00p
and CarnageBlender too! Bumps
will keep us running!

th00p October 26 2008 3:22 AM EDT

My oh my oh my!
Have we descended so far,
Failing a contest?

th00p November 7 2008 10:06 AM EST

Sh! Crickets chirping!
Have we lost all our minds?
Not one more reply?

AdminG Beee November 7 2008 2:47 PM EST

Monkey does a run
Not paying us for our time
A devious man

Sure he will return
More than once he has been slow
But fair is the man

Which option is he
Devious is the monkey
True is the key man
