Here's a challenge for those of you with outstanding debts to society .. You know who you are; you wordsmiths of vicious repute. The thrust of this challenge is to create a series of haiku that are linked -- the last line of one is the first line of the next and so on ..

quick example:

Keeping faith is rough
When the chips are down and I
Stand, unrequited

Stand, unrequited
In pale beams of a guiltless
Moon -- devoid of self

cool? cool!

So .. I leave the seed to you folk. Someone start it off. I love haiku, 'cuz that's what I started writing back in grade 7 when my creative mind leaped from my skull and planted a flag in the floor of my classroom.

Props to Bartleby for giving me the idea :)

I knew it had somethign to do witht he infamous. If I had any conept of writing Haiku myself I would start, just for the challenge, but unfortunately I don't. But it sounds like something all those poets should get a leg in on, and prove that you're multitalented.

This sounds like fun...
