Sunday’s Steelers-Bears game didn’t turn out the way we all expected it to. But we have to accept the bad as well as the good.
Despite the loss, I am still going to hold this week’s haiku contest.
The contest rules are simple. You must summarize the Steelers-Bears game in a haiku. A haiku is a form of Japanese poetry that contains only 3 lines. The first line has 5 syllables, the second line has 7 syllables, and the third line has 5 syllables. Typically, haiku do not rhyme.
Please note, the emphasis is on syllables, not words. Remember 5/7/5.
Here are last week’s winners. This should give you a few examples of good haiku.
3rd Place: Hudy
I soiled myself
In section five thirty one
Holy crap! We won!
2nd Place: Ken
Thirty-six rush yards
These ain’t your daddy’s Steelers
Throw to win, Big Ben!
1st Place: Leonard Riddle Jr.
Ben, at the finish,
said, “Get my hat and spinach;
I am what I am.”
