Post your Hivekus

Here's a fun creative challenge! Post a haiku describing a Jumper's experience in a Hive.

The structure of a Haiku is as follows:
    • Only three lines, totaling 17 syllables throughout
    • The first line is only 5 syllables
    • The second line is 7 syllables
    • The third line is 5 syllables like the first
    • Punctuation and capitalization rules are up to the poet, and need not follow rigid rules used in structuring sentences
    • Haiku does not have to rhyme, in fact many times it does not rhyme at all
    • Some haiku can include the repetition of words or sounds
    Have fun! And anyone who participates gets a super cool badge that Kevalier made!

      Alone in the hive
      Running through dark corridors
      Machine gun blazing

      My suit is too tight.
      And these stains just won't come out.
      Don't buy your suit used.

      Jumping is not fun.
      My undies ride up my butt.
      Can't just teleport?

      Very appropriate given that I am currently in the Land of the Samurai (and difficult access to the internet!).

      Cicada buzzing
      in the sultry autumn heat
      makes me want to..... jump!

      Flames burning bugs in this cave
      Wheres that Queen bi ~:> ch at?

      Or the censored version:

      Swarms a blaze throwing
      Flames burning bugs in this cave
      Wheres that Queen looming?

      Squish, squash, squishy, squash,
      The sound of stepping on bugs.
      Their big bros are next.
    • These are all amazing! Keep it up jumpers!  =D>
    • Hah, these are the best :D

      Hm here goes nothing
      Time to make a Haiku that,
      Is about Hive Jump.

      The walls are all damp,
      dripping with a yellow goo,
      hope I make it back.

      Crush crush crush crush crush

    • You humans are weak
      You hide in shells of metal
      But you won't survive

      Down the Hive we go
      Until we stop, we are strong
      We the few survive
