#cmshaiku 2010 Beer Contest
Took an untrodden path once, where the swift don’t win the race,
It goes to the worthy, who can divide the word of truth.
- I AND I
It’s the biggest competition to hit the web in a long time – The 2010 CMS Haiku Beer Contest. We created the fourth worst poetry in history, caused the CEO of Sun to resign, and inspired a prize for the Gilbane Conference in San Francisco. If I have forgotten you, please leave your entry in the comments. You can still make the book.
But enough of that, it’s time to pick the winners. Due to the overwhelming response, I’ve divided the best into six categories of five. Please vote in each category. Voting closes on Feb 10. I’m buying beers for all the winners.
There were many other fine entries. Sadly, a few good ones didn’t meet the strict traditional 5/7/5 syllable rule. We decided that an @ or a # could count as a syllable, but didn’t have to.
Happy voting, and watch this space for the winners.
