Posted by: BinaryTears Oct 12 2007, 03:45 AM
Zombie doom is nigh.
Flee, yee undead ghoulish horde!
The mop maid cometh.


Bat, mop, txt and Boo.
Confronting such mighty arms
Zombie tanks are poop.


"Show us yer skillz, Luv?"
An explosive shell draws near.
High above blast... "Noob, huh?"


If she sits on that...
Yuki in the sky on her mop...
I will die laughing.


Squiggles can obscure.
Then, when its least expected,
Vital squiggle clue.


Here's one helluva mess.
Spattered gore and greenish blood.
Maid! Huh? Where'd she go?

Reminds me of English builders... I love verse 4. The phrase 'vital squiggle clue' is brilliant!

==

"Hit them in the head,"
He'd said, but Yuki instead
Takes them both away.

Kobayashi-kun
Is left totally confused
Does he believe her?

He says yes, but still
Yuki's very stressed
Evading missiles.

Largo's impressed now
This schoolgirl has skillz!
"Noob huh?" Not so much.

Not sure it is safe
To enjoy praise from mauve hair'd
Stealth suicide girl.

"Reminds me of English builders"
As intended. I got the feeling that although Largo says he's impressed, he's still not really taking her seriously by panel 5. Panel 6 is an 'oh crap' moment. Panel 7... she's just saved his arse, whisked them both high up in the air, while not even breaking stride in her txt conversation. Here Largo's 'Noob, huh?' strikes me as high respect, expressed as a kind of sarcastic disbelief towards her "I don't know" (what I can do.)



First complaint about
Lowly prose in Haiku thread
Gets Haiku shafting.

Posted by: Architectonic Oct 12 2007, 07:34 AM
My praise is given
Only where it's due
Forgot the tongue gif.

No offence was meant
Haiku shafting sounds painful
Too spiky for me.

Oh dear! Not for you
Was meant preemptive bristle.
In before Rapierman.

(He used to have fits if anyone included any non-haiku text in his haiku threads. Me, I think such rules are silly. Might as well ban text in CG threads, to be consistent.)

See this silent void?
All praise leaves authors tickled.
Mauve surpasses pink.


There I was remiss.
Forgot to praise your verses.
Especially the first.


Though it seems to me
That 'stressed' is but one, not three.
As if I could count.

Universally
accepted by the old ones;
thou shalt haiku, hence.

'Tis not silliness.
'Tis tradition held so long.
Ask the old A-H.

Long before I graced
the forums so far and wide,
haikus flourished here.

And so it was ruled
before my presence came hither:
Write only haiku.

I continue this
tradition started way back
when MT was born.

But enough of that.
Let us continue the rote
that lives yet today:

Life in the balance,
will the dove defeat the hawk
though so young and frail?

A new partner here,
a stronger pair can be formed
with uncertain ends.

Here she bears triumph,
but youth dulls the deadly blade.
Inexperienced.

[!haiku] For future reference, the rule also includes the use of tags like these to allow for deviation. [/!haiku]

Now the dusty groan
Of ancient tomes disturbed.
It is wind I hear?

Name recited, he rises
From silent crypt, tattered threads,
Focus Pokus lives!

Chiselled lore of old?
Shove your tablets, this is the
Intarwebs baby!

'Bracket NOT Haiku'!
Brain floats in begrimed glass jar.
Like no one can tell.

One spoof focus thread.
More fun than all yours combined.
Did you bribe the Gods?

Oh look, its a hawk.
But haven't you forgotten
The fricken sparrow?

Annoying am I.
Yet I'll never equal your
Lofty Example.

Just as I promised,
This one is all in Haiku
Specially for R.



As you see, 'Tonic.
As predictable as dawn;
Much less revealing.

I fear a flame war
I was ignorant of 'rules'
Haiku are just fun.

I shall make some tea
And internet cookies too
Haiku thread picnic!

Alas, it was me
That failed at counting the beats.
Such things are not rare.

Back to the comic!
But now newer strips are up;
More haiku to write.

I'll bring a basket.
We'll join them all, carousing,
Over there, on fire.



Alas, poor Edit.
Button of infinite worth.
Passed away too soon.

(Two goofs in my previous post, sigh.)

Ah. Binary Tears;
Master of infinite jest.
Now that is funny!
