Well, I was reading my OXM last night, and I saw there was this small section that was a contest about creating a haiku relative to gaming. A haiku if you don't know/remember is a three line poem. 5 sylabels in the first line, 7 in the second, and 5 in the third. This month's topic is: Gamer-score Whoring. This is what i thought up in 20 minutes, it's nothing special... but i try :unsure: Little boy so young You play halo, but not for fun So keep crying 'hun If you have any advice it would be greatly appreciated, otherwise i thought it would be fun to see what other people could come up with!

No! I just thought this would be fun, I'm not trying to steal something from you guys... I just thought it would be fun, you can send the ones in you made yourself.

Candy Kid, in the interest of increasing your educatedness: 1. The plural of Haiku is "Haiku." 2. Haiku aren't supposed to rhyme. 3. Don't state outright exactly what you are thinking or feeling. The goal is to tell through suggestion. Take this classic example from the Japanese (the english translation doesn't fit the syllabic pattern, but the point is the essence): furu ike ya kawazu tobikomu mizu no oto "An old pond, A frog jumps in, The sound of water" The goal is to speak of gamerscore whoring w/o speaking of gamerscore whoring.
