Hey Tankers!

As we get rolling with even more Back to School fun I thought we could cover another subject: English. This is for all of you aspiring writers out there who remember having to learn different aspects of writing in this particular subject.

This week your task is to write a Haiku about World of Tanks. For those of you unfamiliar with what Haiku's are they are a poem that consists of 17 syllables, normally separated as three lines as 5-7-5. 

 

Example by Mana WGA: 

The warmth on my hull,
Bomb falls beneath the roof.
Explode into night.

 

The Top 10 entries will receive 750 gold

Seasons of WoT

Baking in the heat,

plowing through the heavy snow,

soaking in the rain.

War with the Freedom
 

Freedom comes knocking

When warriors clash at dusk

At dawn peace was called

Waffentrager My Love

My heart is aching

My heart can only take so much

Just marry me my love

I start with such hope
The trail is dusty and long
I see them I'm gone

This poem kind of sucks

But driving my Luchs does not

I told you it sucks

 

Thanks for reminding me how miserable that English class was, and for giving me PTSD due to the memories of the evil Ms. Harrison.

Engines are screaming

Cannons roaring, shells crashing

The tanks rule the night

The Peace of the Tank Destroyer

Hiding on hilltops.

Listening to the rain fall.

Bouncing off the tank.

 

 

And the below just for fun (ie it is not my entry):

The life of a scout

Rushed across map.

Hunting for a hiding place.

Stopped inside a bush.

 

Hiding in Bushes.

Awaiting the enemy.

Spotted a heavy.

 

Now he is lit up.

I hope my team shoots at him.

BLAM! Arty shell strikes.

 

Flanked a Destroyer.

Fired shots in its rear end.

Now it is on fire.

 

Looking for cover.

Tracked by a medium tank.

Repair kit too late.

Defend the base

Camp the base to death

Enemy approaches the base

Drive into the lake

 

I'd like to point out that some people don't know how syllables work.

Summary of World of Tanks

 

Lemming train goes left.

The Red's train goes their left.

Squares go suicide.

"Last of the skyward shells ( an arty expierence)"

Blast into the sky
Kiss the earth with destruction
No more shells to send

My shells hit their mark.
The sky darkens with black smoke.
Victory is mine.

My Luchs rushes past

The enemy seeks and scans

My clip empties out


Stang is a dirty girl.

Before a Tiger,

Shrapnel to the atmosphere.

Panther fragments rain.
