Cataclysm: Your reviews in haiku


I was doing my usual trick of idly passing time on the EU forums recently when I came across this fantastic thread. The poster was asking the forum to review Cataclysm in the form of a haiku, which I felt was an excellent way to mark the transition from the staid, western feel of Cataclysm into the Zen, peaceful feel of Mists of Pandaria.

It seems that Blizzard Blue Vaneras felt the same, offering this haiku in response:

Thank you for posting
your feedback is important
be it good or bad

So let's hear your haikus! While the traditional Japanese form was probably far more free, the English version of haiku stipulates that they should be 17 syllables, five on the first line, seven on the second and five on the third. I've picked out some of the ones I liked from the original post after the break, and you should get to writing your own!

On Deepholm:

Round and round we go
Chasing the missing pebble
Fat lady watches

On Archaeology:

Hunt for lost treasure
Now I wish I was fishing
Digging just to dig

On Madness:

Deathwing, so distant
there was always a tentacle
between him and us
