Let's battle with haikus! Bring it! Remember, haikus follow the syllable structure 5-7-5.


The first strike is made.
Next user submit with care
Lest you get cut down.


(An example response would be:

I take the challenge.
You are on a pedestal,
Today you will fall.)


Note: If you'd like to be a stickler, these are technically not haikus due to their subject matter, but for the sake of the topic: english haiku, 5-7-5, etc. etc. A real haiku would contain more meaning and possibly some reference to the seasons, and a whole myriad of other things. This is a 17-syllable light-hearted poem battle, in reality.

If you are that great
Please prove it, I want to see
The one to beat -me!

I never say much.
But when I do speak it's clear,
I know quite a bit.

I dare you to test
My wrath; approach me with fear
And caution. Begin!

warriors resting
until their graves disturbed and
forums resurrect
maybe i make up colors for poetic cadence, but i don't think i can ever love someone who doesn't understand that teal is a different color than dark cyan

Today i will honor
memories of those long gone.
I fight for the old.

Shall you draw your sword?
Will I mock you and your name?
Charge forth and we'll see.
From the wild manila folder of YWS's office.

When the last tree has fallen
And the rivers are poisoned
You cannot eat money

A battle of poems?
Calls for only the bravest
bards equipped with rhyme!

I see your brown pants
You scared I'll win this battle?
I wore brown pants too
I'm making a hai-
These limitations are so-
I made a haiku

I see myself standing,
A medal around my neck.
Wish it was on yours?

Here's five syllables.
Now here you got seven more.
And now five. Happy?
Life is short.
Reality is an illusion.
Eat the spicy nuggets.

I see your resolve.
But you are no match for me!
I conquer with words.
LOVE THE WORLD!
EMBRACE CHANGE!
HAVE FUN AND
DON'T BE A MOLDY BAGEL!
