419 haiku results delayed
Poetic tsunami swamps Vulture Central
The results of our 419 haiku competition have been postponed after hundreds of wannabe poet laureates jammed El Reg inboxes with 17-syllable masterpieces.
Accordingly, the results - which will announce who has won one of our magnificent Strategy Boutique t-shirts - will be announced later in the week.
Suffice it to say for now that the standard has been almost uniformly high: we say almost because, sadly, there have been a number of entries establishing a new benchmark of lyrical ineptitude.
Still, it's all a bit of fun, and you will soon be able to see just how talented - or otherewise - our readers really are. Watch this space. ®
Thanks very much to David Shepherd, who has just composed this haiku on the subject of this tragic delay in the competition results:
Results are delayed
"A Poetic Tsunami"
Vulture Central Swamp'd
Right - that's enough haikus.
