Here is a not very talented example:

Patiently I wait
For the haikus to arrive --
I do not take bribes

Nope, you're 1 syllable short in your middle line. Suggest adding "sauce"

Sigh, I already thought of attending, but considering it's about serious combat stuff, I opted against it. But hey, if I can make a proper Haiku that brings my team to loosing... P


In the city of ice
I do think of fights in space
but I do transports?

Well, they oughta know what to do with them hogs out there for shure.

To clear up any misunderstandings, the live event is NOT about serious combat :) .. well not entirely. It has something for everyone and tickets are very limited.

There will be a briefing for the event at 16.00 on Thursday and will last for around 15 minutes. This does not clash with the DUST keynote nor open mic night. The event itself is 10.30am on Friday. Thanks for your interest!

Freezing my ass in Iceland,
Just got a Quafe shirt from Fanfest,
I'm not wearing any pants.

If you're gonna post here thinking your idea is the greatest thing since bacon and that it will save EVE and possibly all humankind with it, you're gonna have a bad time.
