With my epic haiku skillz
"Necrotic Ooze" wins!

My haikuing feels rusty

I found in writing
Haiku without meter else
comprehension lacks

And when in reading
One must respect the line break
As she is spoken

without the line breaks,
haikus are just seventeen
syllable phrases

it's a form some call
"the american sentence"
it's kind of boring

There are some of course
Who prefer standard straight prose
For their poetry

I, for one, care less.
Rhyme, rhythm and a cadence
Much improves reading

It only has six
