Alright guys, it's time for the haiku contest round 2!

This time, it's going to be slightly different, in that limericks will be allowed as entries as well. Remember, they have to be original poems.

The contest will end one week from today on Thursday, March 14th at 9AM my time.

A Haiku is a free-form Japanese short poem consisting of 3 lines, with 5 syllables in the first line, 7 in the second line, and 5 again in the third line. Wikipedia Haiku

Limericks are more structured 5-line poems following an AABBA rhyme scheme, and are often hilariously dirty. I would imagine the filthy ones are against OCN forum rules, though, so try to keep it clean. Wikipedia Limerick

Example of limerick:

I'm starting the contest, round 2!
The last one was fun 'cuz of you!
There's two prizes this time.
Win both with one rhyme.
So let your creative side through!

Example of haiku:

That lim'rick was lame,
but what were you expecting
on such short notice?

The prizes this time are Steam keys for Deus Ex: Human Revolution - Augmented Edition, and the standalone DLC The Missing Link. Both will be given together. The winner will be chosen randomly from all eligible entries.

All legitimate attempts will be accepted, but make sure you put in an effort. Poetry (especially nonsense poetry like a limerick) can be a lot of fun when done right.

Also, feel free to post some funny compositions in here even if you don't want to enter the contest, but PLEASE state in big ol' fat bold letters that you don't want to be entered in.

Don't take it too seriously, and just have fun!

My eyes are longing
For one 'cross the horizon
For whispers I hear.

I want to feel you
Closer to my heart my dear.
Death is what I fear.

To lose you forever,
Is not what I endeavor,
I want you forever.

Haiku - 5 7 5

There once was Ex SWAT named Adam
who was injured while rescuing a madam
He was shot in the head
and then left for dead
He was aug'd but they didn't ask him.

Daus Ex HR
Already have Deus Ex
DLC for Me

Freebie Deus Ex
I give Deus Ex for Free
DLC for Me

Please only count my entry if the Game and DLC are separate, since I have Deus EX HR, but not the DLC, If I were lucky enough to win, I will Re-Freebie Deus Ex, but keep the DLC for me ;p

hence my Haiku

Don't know if the following entry will be too dirty for OCN, if so, i'll remove it.

There once was a vampire named Mable,
Who's periods were very unstable,
One night under the moon
She went for a spoon,
And drank herself under the table.

hope it is not dirty

A bather whose clothing was strewed,
By winds that left her quite nude,
Saw a man come along,
And unless we're quite wrong,
You expected this line to be lewd.
