Definately strong.
I do not need 'protection'.
But what will she do?

[iTOLDuSO 3-5-3]
I was right.
All you fear-mongers
Suck lemons.

Largo starts planning
"Look that broke a thousand arms"
No more plans, perhaps?

The threat everywhere
Defend my base I have to
This girl is scary...

Posted by: Chun Mar 19 2004, 03:30 AM
A Realization
No Protection, but Worries
They Are a Good Pair

The One Largo Grab
The First Arm Broken By Her
Not Coincidence

Fate Binds Them as One
Together Invinsible
E and L for all

[ haiku? ]

A wounded beast growls
loudest before its defeat:
Thinly veiled, but fierce.

Largo's bravado--
bold words, brash actions, results--
silenced with one look. :-)

[ irish haiku? ]

The fanboy horde growing below,
empowers the l337-master Largo:
he plans his attack,
but is taken aback,
by a woman whose eyes tell him "No."

When you're trapped 'gainst a wall by a crowd,
take a breath, plant your feet, hold your ground:
The thrill of first blood,
can make your name mud,
if you're hasty and overly proud. :-D

--Xky *waving Mami flag with a smile*

Know your place, fanboy
I neither want nor need you.
This is my business.

grey clouds and soft rain
have ominously darkened;
a cold wind rises.

[irish_haiku]
And so we have come to this pass,
With this lovely, adorable lass,
Who wears cute bows and frills
And is not dressed to kill,
But will still take some names and kick ass.

Beholden, I'll never be.

Danger is near,
L33T senses tingling,
No, stop,
I need no protection from you.

Posted by: Rowan Bristol Mar 19 2004, 08:32 AM
I have borne my fate
I need nothing from anyone
not even you, boy.

Posted by: DCR Mar 19 2004, 09:11 AM
My help rejected
A paladin without quest
No need for Cool Thing

I wish to help but
Is there something she can do
That I cannot do

Posted by: Damion Requiem Mar 19 2004, 09:39 AM
[Irish haiku]
Never the one to waver,
Largo offers the ch1><0r a favor
But arctic eyed she stands
And punches holes in his plans.
"I have no need for a savior."
[/Irish haiku]

[!haiku]Yes, I know that wasn't extraordinarily good, but I wrote it in two minutes when half-asleep...[/!haiku]

An angry seiyu.

Her armor of ice melting
under volcanic anger

Posted by: Damion Requiem Mar 19 2004, 04:06 PM
[!haiku] Just a thought, and, after all, it has been done with the limericks, although it seemingly lacks a true precedent...

Would it be appropriate to post Shakesperian haiku (read: sonnets) here in these threads? If so, I think I can have one by tomorrow...if not, gomen nasai for wasting your time.[/!haiku]

Anger yet unseen
Only a cold ruthlessness

[!haiku]
Yes. The haiku thread has hosted a variety of verse forms in the past, including "Norse haiku" (Skaldic) and Irish metric. In practice, however, only Japanese verse forms and "Irish haiku" have taken root. "Shakespearian haiku" would certainly be acceptable, particularly if it is original work. So if you have something to post, by all means, please do so!

As for precedent, Smurd has posted his Shakespeare sonnet parodies in this forum (though not in the haiku thread) and they have been well recieved. So you should not worry about lack of appropriate precedent. Besides, if your verse is effective, it won't matter if precedent is lacking: your work will be judged on its own merits, and that alone.

Well, here goes nothing
I hope I don't offend by
Muscling in on Smurd... ^^;;;
I must admit, 'tis trying,
Iambic pentameter.

[Shakespearian haiku]
"A siege upon our fortress!" he exclaimed,
The noble paladin of flying hair
"This time, 'tis former friend, the foe to blame
But nevermind, I'll fight the same. Stay there!"
But rather than relief at valiant talk,
His speech was met with eyes like arctic lands
Which said t'would be a funny way he'd walk
If he so dared to lift a helping hand.
And he, who fears not even zombie hordes,
Was halted before frigid eyes so stark.
Her forceful, level stare, devoid of warmth,
And level, too, her voice in cold remark:
"No, this onslaught is mine alone to brave!
I'm not some damsel weak for you to save."
[/Shakespearian haiku]

I climbed here myself.
I chose my own citadel.
I sit calm and straight.

You may have this small
Trust--but you do not ever
Get to call me weak.

I don't understand.
Is my audience supposed
To react this way?

Not a shelter, but
A place to build emotion
For berserkering

Be careful what you wish for
Can you take such punishment?

[Irish Haiku]
There once was a poster named Snark,
who posted punny haiku for a lark,
He thought he'd earn moans,
and perhaps broken bones,
but discovered he'd made quite a mark!
[/Irish Haiku]

If Snark is a Boojum,
I may vanish away if
the verse displeases. ohmy.gif

Nigh the very same remark
For just such a time;

But I slumbered on
While puns were exchanged, and am
Beat to allusion.
