By ni (Sun Mar 23, 2008 at 08:20:24 AM EST) wombats, fun challenge, HFC (all tags)
Theme: Underground.


Rules:
  1. The haiku should not be any good. I'll rely on your common sense here, but please try not to embarrass the rest of us.
  2. Haiku's should be submitted by posting them as a comment here. There will be no voting process. Everybody is a winner (unless someone breaks rule #1). There will be, as a result, no end date. Feel free to post your underground-themed haiku's here until the end of time.
  3. The nature criteria thing is probably a non-issue with the underground theme, so I wouldn't worry too much about it.
  4. Haiku's involving wombats will (by special dispensation) be given a 5 point bonus.
  5. Haiku cycles are encouraged, but try not to be a lout about it: Don't use them as a way to get around the already ridiculously minimal requirements the haiku places on you. Unless maybe if you really want to.
  6. They can have titles. Again, pratishness about sneaking words in via the title is discouraged, unless you really, really want to.
  7. Post as many entries as you want, then post one more. (This to enforce rule #1.)
  8. Seriously, see rule #1.
