Tim builds the tension and had a classic bit
of repartee - in haiku
form! The author builds on the confidence of his earlier submissions
and ends in anticipation! quite literally..........I can't wait to read
Edward, sensing his early lead slipping to Tims dominant
form, throws in a second contribution rebounding well with a little
comic gem in two parts. Then the new kid "happens"......
His first was fulled with the raw energy one only finds in the work of
a novice yet to become jaded by rejections and poor reviews. Then Tim
pulls out all the stops and it looks like its all over - that fat lady
warming up in the wings.....
Edward - what were you thinking? Newlands won't mind!!! But I would.
imagery you had me conjour up has just put me off my hot
And then the raw latent talent of Branden [footnote 1] comes across as
youthful exuberance of one not "finished off" by the hum drum
Followed by one that almost floored me. Not a true Haiku you might say,
but filled with such intense rawness and yes I see that hoity toity
syllable shortening trick you tried - what with those apostrophes all
over the place - so whats a syllable or two between friends.
I have not laughed this hard since, well I can't remember since when.
So well done Branden - you get the ticket!
The winning entry
Kyk’ie tjsou swaai
Ek’e saam na rugby toe waai
Fok’ie ander wit naai
And Brandon used his solid financial background to leverage a sweet
sponsohsip deal! Did I hear the words FREE BEER TREVOR!!!!!!
