Posted by: masamage Jun 9 2006, 01:24 PM
What "normal channels"?
I'm the only remotely
Normal person here!

[3-5-3]
This cam'ra
Probably doesn't
Need to live.
[/3-5-3]

An optical lens--
Excellent for focusing
Images, anger.

I can execute
You personally, or just
Your electronics.

I think you forgot
that all types of memory
are destructible.

Posted by: BlackLiger Jun 9 2006, 02:20 PM
Not an actual Haiku, but I've never been good at writing those. its a poem, though, so I figure it belongs here.

Crash. Smash. Crunch. Thud.
The camera, in pieces. Sparks. Plastic. Metal.
Memory destroyed. Lens shattered. Angry.
Urge to kill. Must remain calm. Damage done.
I was once like this. No more, never again.

-First one from Piro's POV, if the reader wasn't sure.

Shocked by otaku,
Heart broken by her leaving,
Angered to fury.

-Second one from the otaku's POV.

I can't believe it,
The Holy Grail film is our's.
Busboy, get your own.

-Third one from Megumi's POV

Should have tried harder,
I knew it was a mistake
Letting him in here.

Disappointed girl,
Angered friend and maybe more,
Awestruck otaku.

A river of red
Drowns out the voice of reason
I have made my choice

Opps. Wrong thread. doh

Camera's fear him,
destruction is on the way,
none left surviving.

Otaku:
Our goddess departs
She lifted her skirt for us!
Why didn't she smile?

Piro:
Hentai perv bastards!
I can take it no longer
Say goodbye, cam'ra!

Megumi:
Lifting up her skirt?
Social suicide, and now
Her boyfriend's insane.

Posted by: Sana Jisushi Jun 9 2006, 04:46 PM
I was one of them
They will never understand
Guilt misses its mark

Or... um...

What's he doing now?
Nanasawa's gone insane
Now her guy has, too.

I can't write Haikus
(little face sticks its tongue out)
I fail at them all.

It's not that hard. Go ahead, you know you want to... wink.gif

If you gentlemen would be so kind,
Please leave all your pictures behind;
For whatever you keep
I'll install so damn deep,
You'll need flashlights and tweezers to find.

[!Haiku] Shoka you RULE! Course you probly already knew that wink.gif [/!Haiku]

Darkened clouds converge
Doom pervasive in the air
The dam is toppled

Posted by: Keita-chan Jun 9 2006, 08:19 PM
"Put them in the bin.
I'm sorry, you don't want to?
Your problem, not mine."

And yes, Shoka, that is awesome.

Once he was the same ...
It's different when she's your girl.
Zealous hypocrite.

[!haiku]

That being said, it's good to see Piro getting in touch with his inner Pirogoeth!

[/!haiku]

her feelings you mash
so i will vent all my wrath
On this Camera SMASH!

I think that about sums it up. laugh.gif

(expressed appreciation)

thank you, each and all;
i'm glad it made you chuckle,
despite the 'dark end'.

QUOTE (AncestralHamster)

...very harsh, AH.

[verse]
To have a change of feeling
Once meant an open mind,
But now means you're a weakling
Of the wishy-washy kind.

And if this weakness causes you
To stand up for a friend,
That won't mean you are faithful -
Toward hypocrisy you bend.

So every view you hold, hold strong,
Don't bow to contradiction,
No virtue lies in 'right or wrong',
But constance of conviction.
[/verse]

Eyes forced wide open
Otaku depravity
The Mask falls away

Drop all your weapons,
And all your memory sticks,
Or I will drop you.

[Insert sounds akin
To that of a huge orange
Being swiftly juiced.]

There. No record will
Go back to the enemy.
...Now I want a bath.

In wallowing fear
BlackLiger shys from the edge...
precipice of words.

[!Haiku] Congrats on the nuptials, Masamage![/!Haiku]

Know not your peril
Waking the sleeping dragon
Feel his fire and repent!

Thank you!

I got him into
MT fairly early on--
Once he sent me some
Flowers, and a doodle of
Miho. I knew it was love.

[!Haiku] Gah! Botched the meter on my last haiku! Bogus! [/!Haiku]

With trepidation
Otaku circle wagons
To thwart enemies

Shotgun Crazy,
Minigun mad!
Piro's gonna kill Kuro,
and all MT fans are glad!
