Well the Steelers beat the Browns and stand alone in first place in the AFC North. That’s exactly where they belong.
Now that Big Ben is back with the team, I thought it would be a good time to bring back our weekly haiku contest.
The contest rules are simple. You must summarize the Steelers-Browns 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.
I start the competition by offering a haiku of my own. Then you readers write a haiku of your own to try to beat mine. On Thursday I will announce this week’s contest winner. But remember, your haiku has to be better than mine. If nobody’s haiku is better than mine, then I take home the prize.
Here is my entry:
Now we have Big Ben
The final piece is added
Dallas here we come
Obviously, I chose to focus on Ben’s return. But you can write about any aspect of the game.
Okay readers, your turn. Lets see who can come up with the best haiku about the Steelers-Browns game.
Are you ready for some haiku?!!
