Just for a lark, I entered the CBC Calgary Cowboy Poetry Contest with this haiku:

Dusty chaps
worn like the rough varmint
Sunburned rattler

Not one of my best granted, but when it’s got to be three lines, and you have to include three specific words, you don’t have much to work with. Still, I’m pleased. Not that I have a hope in hell of winning 😉



UPDATE: Well I wasn’t even picked as one of the top three, but there was another haiku (better than mine) see it (and vote for it) here.
