    A Haiku thread for Grumpy

    Inspired by Grumpy's masterpiece:

    My attempt:

    Capture timer ticks,
    bodies drop, raised by nanites -
    We must fight harder

    I like it.

    Capture is complete,
    TR has taken the base,
    You have failed yourself.

    After a biolab session with my lasher last night, the following is how I would sum up my thoughts and feelings:

    Pew. Pew. Pew. Pew. Pew.
    PEW-PEW-PEW-PEW-PEW-PEW-PEW
    Pew. Pew. For Vanu!

    For extra fun times, adapt forum posts to haiku (ish) lengths The following is one of moms:

    I prefer to kill
    Grible with knife to the throat.
    To each, their own.

    And here's one of mine:

    Giraffe Honour States
    You Must Deploy Into Galaxy
    No Matter Who's Pilot

    (bare this in mind the when I finally fly you chaps/chapesses around )

    A shout of purple
    Among dead and dying men
    The giraffes are here.

    Apologies for the gendered noun, we kill women too, it's just for the haiku structure...

    I think I might have been the person who encouraged the formulation of reflections on how to be quicker. With that in mind my rather direct haiku:

    Deploy to the gal
    No really, deploy right now!
    Too late, base is lost
    WallyTrooper = TrooperWally

    Wally is now on Steam!

    It was originally 'among the dead and dying', but 'men' fitted better. Also gives it a bit of war is hell/serious-face macho war memorial vibe.

    This is brilliant.

    Not a Haiku, but may serve as a motivational reminder :

    Roses are red
    Violets are blue
    If you're late for the Gal drop
    I'll F***ING CUT YOU!

    It's worth pointing out this may violate the whole "be excellent to each other" thing. As will actually cutting people. Although they will definitely reach the Gal quicker...

    I always think that saying you'll cut someone has so much more malice than simply saying stab/kill.

    Well played...

    That's great! Properly inspiring.

    It makes you sound like the kind of person who'd happily glass someone for accidentally treading on your shoes (which, I hasten to add, I'm not). Plus it has a certain quality that makes it clear that this would be a real life thing - a week later, the tardy Gal dropper gets into bed, snuggles under the covers, looks up and - "remember the Gal drop last Stratgir?".

    All the police find are some bloody sheets, a rusty blade and a giraffe mask...

    But actually using the haiku structure.

    Oh, traitors in blue
    Obsessive, competitive
    Spirit of shotgun.

    When the PL commands redeploy
    /suicide, quickly, my boy;
    Continue to farm
    And do nothing but harm
    Group effectiveness you will destroy.

    Take cover! Daddy comes soaring
    All other mere mortals outscoring
    His lulz with the podz
    Smite like wrath of the Gods;
    A shame his playstyle's so boring.
