Reapers Halloween Challenge!

by Community Manager a month ago - last edited a month ago (29,766 Views)

As we're nearing the end of spooktober, All Hallows Eve is upon us, time for a fun challenge!



It's becoming a yearly tradition that I challenge everyone to show off their skills in all kind of different challenges, and this year we're going to try and dabble in a bit of Japanese poetry




A Haiku-off!

The Challenge is simple: compose a haiku that is both scary and somewhat related to our field (security/networking/general IT or good old helldesk stories)

The composition of a haiku is usually 3 lines with the first line being 5 syllables, second line being 7 and the third 5, so 17 syllables in total.



I like my firewall (5)

It stops bad men in their tracks (7)

Then i take their soul (5)


I'm not going to be a stick in the mud and enforce strict rules, so if you are able to make something haiku-like with a few more or less syllables, that will do just fine (we're here to have fun, after all ;) )


As per the usual, we (the Live Community team) will be hand-picking a few lucky people to win some loot and gain eternal glory in the hall of fame of the Live community! so get your thinking skull-masks out and sit in a dark crevace while you write poetry most evil



My scythe is worn out

Many blogs by my hand cast

Now its time for fun
