cchsleggomymeggo29

Con

Rules: Haiku--> Know what that is. 3 lines, one 5 syllables, next 7 syllables, and the latter, 5 syllables. It is on!

Me first:

Night stalks the day
Cows moo at the farmer now
Orange Julius? Nice.
radioactivepotatoman

Pro

For I am awesome.

B/A: Tied->Pro.
C: Tied.
S/G: Pro, but barely; both sides need a LOT of help.
CA: Pro; Con's first round haiku was the best, but mistakes in syllables knocked her out.
S: Tied.

RAP is winning.

Round one is too close,
Round two is RAP
Round three is RAP
and Round four looks to be RAP's as well.

I am leaning on going with CON (your name is TOOLONG to type) for the first round though. I like Orange Julius

Instigator, would you mind challenging me to one of these haiku debates? I would like to face you one-on-one ;)
Posted by studentathletechristian8 7 years ago

Well, you may be a horrific syllable counter then ;)

Orange is not one syllable. Or - ange. Really? That is just sad on your part. Orange is only one syllable if you are clynically crazy.

ok so i'm not perfect,
but in the pro's round 3 his last line has 6 syllables.
and i counted my first line, round 1, it has 5 based on how i count syllables.
and my last line, orange is one syllable based on how i count.
so there.

I already stated that. Besides, aren't haikus usually about nature or natural processes?
