MC7: POETRY OF KURAI!
The denizens of Kurai are the demons and their various kin; their world is dangerous and their gods often cruel, but Kurai holds its own beauty and a vast, intense culture unique to itself alone. Demons of the N'vaen class are skilled and intellectual, and are not without their customs!

One such custom is the ability to create poetry. Poets in the Demon Realm are incredibly well respected, and their signature is a specialized type of poem called... the haiku.


THE CONTEST!


It's time for a contest that touches on this aspect of demon culture! Time to create some haiku, whoo!

A haiku is five syllables in the first line, seven in the second, and five in he third, for a total of three lines only.


THE RULES!


Here are the rules of this MC!
  • The haiku must be BTACD related in some way, and must be original to you! No pulling from existing sources, please.
