My only crime?
Got hooked on rhyme

Writ some bad ass meter
now I'm doin' hard time!


Portfolio | Become A Fan

I've won a competition
I can't believe my luck
There had to be some readers though
Who thought my write may suck!

My first attempt at Haiku
So much I didn't know
But yes my love for chocky
Had me giving it a go.

I feel I pushed the friendship
And bent a contest rule
The picture used however was
My instrumental tool

It could have lured you in
I know just how you felt
Distracting us with liquid bliss
With chocolate on the melt!

I failed to mention "I"
I didn't mention "me"
But did you read the "melts inside"
Who could that really be?

I haven't spent the prize
I'd even give it back
But I believe I played fair ball
So won't be taking flack

Not serious with this
I mean it all in jest
I really want to thank you all
And wish my very best.

I won't toot every win
But this one was my first
It's got the words a flowin'
Made insatiable my thirst!

In saying all I've said
The ego's had a stroke
I'll take the cash and settle down
Back on the path of "Joke".

I'm humbled now for sure
Quite honoured for the choc
I think I'll toast the both of us
And polish off a block!


Author Notes
Many thanks to every worthy entry in the Haiku Me contest.

I am quite ecstatic and equally humbled that I finally got a win.

I felt clarification of a couple of points within my poem were necessary as I would not want to accept a prize given to me unfairly.

I guess if it wasn't appearing in all effect to be a worthy Haiku within the contest parameters then people would not have voted for it.

That being said thankyou to everyone who read it and in particular to the people who deemed it worthy of 1st place.

Special Note: The colour scheme of this inspired by Cadbury chocolate ... my favourite ... mmm.

Cheers and many thanks ....
