Borderlands in Haiku

Cherished Avenger
Stolen and buried by Rat
Causes great anguish

Fixed that for ya. More family-friendly :grin:

Don’t you love hearing
"Watch out for the mortars, slab!"
For the hundredth time?


Eyeballs spooned out
Maybe you had to be there
You’re a total bitch

Here’s a couple from my young son and i’ll have to admit he’s left me for dead :astonished:

Jump to secret spot
A perfect double rainbow
So what does it mean?

Ah the sound of BOre
Is there anything better
Rip That poor Bunker

Once there was a man
His name was once John, then Jack
He wore a mask. Why?

For knowledge is power
Power easily corrupts
The Vaults did not lie

For his face was burned
Though he found that which he sought
His mind was twisted

Civilization
He did bring to Pandora
It was unasked for

The planet fought back
The Bandits unified to
Repel Hyperion

He wished for vengeance
For everyone betrayed him
And left him alone

He turned on his friends
His people were but assets
To be used and dropped

For life meant nothing
Life was bought and paid for, just
’twas not always so

Dying, the Angel
Her words sent him to the edge
Toward the Abyss

He opened a Vault
And he woke the Warrior
It was his undoing

For Bandits had strength
Strength in heart and strength in fist
And a man was killed

For a man named John
Started out with just one dream
But Jack lived nightmares

Though there were losses
Though some took it much harder
Death spoke near kindly

Some hid in their games
Tried their best to forget, and
Found peace in bottles

But others would not
But others commemorate
Et Memoriam.

He wore a mask. Why?
A mask hides more than a face
A mask hides feelings.

That is “Borderlands in Haiku” from start to finish. Great work. :smiley:
