For this debate it does not matter whether you are con or pro. All that matters is who can write the best Haiku.

Haiku- a major form of Japanese verse, written in 17 syllables divided into 3 lines of 5, 7, and 5 syllables, and employing highly evocative allusions and comparisons, often on the subject of nature or one of the seasons.

This debate will be 5 rounds. Since a Haiku is focused on seasons this is how the debate will be broken down to.

Haiku must be original from writer no plagiary.

Round 1- acceptance
Round 2- Haiku about Summer
Round 3- Haiku about Fall
Round 4- Haiku about Winter
Round 5- Haiku about Spring

The voter will have to choose based on how well did the writer write about the season. If the writer was able to follow the
5 syllables
7 syllables
5 Syllables
three line format.

May the best Haiku win.

Con

Haikus are stupid.
Dumber than your taste in clothes,
But I accept. Almonds.

I guess I lost this one,
But that's okay, I'm awesome,
So screw this, ponies.

Reasons for voting decision: Overall: Con. Let's break this down: Conduct: Con. Overall civil, however, Pro broke his own rule on formatting. The lines were shifted all over the plac.e S&G: Con. Pro's haiku was oft in inappropriate format. Arguments: Con had much more creative haikus... which is kind of the point of poetry... Overall, MassiveDump gets my vote.
