eTN haiku


A place for the discussion of all things not closely related to the sport and its competitive side. (as always, locked for the duration of major international championship)

Yep. 5-7-5, Epelle. Unless maybe you're from East Texas and have that tendency to break single-syllable words into multiples.

LOL! We used to tell Louise Ritter she was the only person we'd ever heard who could turn "hi" into a 5-syllable word!

Hey, Grazerism!
you needn't mispronounce things
re-word them instead

Make your second line
"Drummond never false started"
See! haiku's easy.

[warning - high geek-factor alert]

not to switch poetic genres, but we just studied Keats, so:

Ode to T&FN

With thy comely stat and list
Thou beguilest me as few can do.
And like an early spring morning’s dew
Cover me in news I missed.

I'd like to still recieve eTN but I dumped the email address that received it. Made 4 attempts at emailing MV but nothing happened. Only response was a, "it's not my job", one.

if you click on "members only" on the front page, then click on No.8 ("who do I contact?") you should get a form that goes directly to Ben.
