    Default Metroid Haiku Contest

    i don't know if anyone has posted about this already, i couldn't find anything with search. let me know if it's already been talked about.

    but....


    Nintendo is holding a Metroid Haiku contest. grand prize is a tv and a GC with metroid and 4 wavebirds, runners up receive a gc, metroid and 2 wavebirds.

    all you've gotta do is write a haiku and submit it to nintendo. here's the link:

    Want to play Metroid
    Nintendo gives me green screen
    Gamecube door won't close

    ------------------------------

    Need Super Metroid
    Thirty bucks at EBGames?
    Will look at thrift store

    ------------------------------

    Too tall, can't walk through.
    Roll up into little ball
    Now I fit nicely

    The best I could come up with is:

    Try to defeat Metroid
    Mutations growing stronger
    Need lot more missiles
    "I am a cipher, wrapped in an enigma, smothered in secret sauce."

    Wow. Sounds like fun. Time to test my skills as a poet. All these years of English class my pay off.

    Here's a plan... now this is just a random submission that I probably won't send to Nintendo. I'm just throwing out ideas, seeing what sticks. Okay.

    *ahem*

    Metroids really suck.
    Those bastards suck out your life.
    God, they really suck!

    Thank you. *bows*
    That's it! Next stop: The Junkyard. Population: You!

    Well I'm in High School now taking English 11. Nothing special. I've just been taught Haiku poems a thousand times.

    Well, couldn't hurt sending it in for the hell of it. It's actually funny. I like it I just think some words need to be changed around for it to actually be considered.

    I came up with two. This is the one I sent in;

    Oh, cute little blob
    Why do you gnaw so? Does my
    Head smell like candy?

    On the same theme;

    Look, I found a blob
    He is so cute and squishy
    Augh! There go my brains

    I submitted one under my name, and one under my girlfriend.

    hope is eclipsing
    hindered by a crimson orb
    illuminated

    betwixt light and dark
    transient orb of hope dwells
    solitude defined

    Been a long time since I wrote any poetry (use to write all the time). I entered just the same though, let's hope someone from the boards wins!
    Curiosity killed the cat.... Satisfaction brought him back.

    My shadow's the only one that walks beside me
    My shallow heart's the only thing that's beating
    Sometimes I wish someone out there will find me
    'Til then I walk alone...
