Haiku poetry;
When it comes to creation,
I totally suck.


In any case, since my first forum contest entry was based on Menage a 3, I was looking to do one off of Eerie Cuties. Hopefully it doesn't suck too much . . . :ymsick:

Text formatting fixed. The DAMNed
Many thanks to Raamyah for the avvie!!!!

You are incredible poets. I am unfortunatly prose inclined, so I won't enter unless something amazing pops into my head.
I know things. It's the only thing I know how to do.

You should fear me. Why do you not fear me?
