Wikia Poetry Contest

Trellar March 19, 2013 User blog:Trellar
Greetings Wikians!
Cat writing

With the recent popularity of our Valentine's Day poetry blog, we've decided to launch a Wiki Poetry Contest!

That's right, it's time for you to flex your creative muscles and craft some beautiful wiki-themed poetry. We'll be reading our favorites as well as announcing the winners LIVE at a very special Google Hangout on April 1st. (No foolin'!)

Here are a few poems to get you in the spirit. If you can can recall, here's my painfuly bad poem from earlier:

Roses are red,
Violets are blue,
If you edit my wiki,
I'll edit yours too!

Any kind of poem is fair game. Haikus were extremely popular last time, so feel free to submit as many as you want. Remember, a haiku is traditionally written in a pattern of 5-7-5 syllables. Here is one of our favorite Haikus from last time:

So many pages [5]
Compulsively I edit [7]
All of it for love. [5]

Haiku cat

Think you can beat this cat at writing haikus?

PRIZES:

This wouldn't be a propper contest without prize, now would it? We'll be dishing out a few Wikia Swag Bags to 3 Grand Prize winners. Swag Bags include Wikia T-shirts and other goodies. Grand Prize winners will also have their poems read aloud LIVE during our special Hangout on April 1st. Runners up will receive fame and glory by having their poem read aloud* by staff LIVE on April 1st.

*Poems may or may not be read aloud in silly accents or in silly hats
