RCC Contest: Coin-, RCC-, or ACG-related haiku

Post by David Hop » Mon, 02 Dec 2002 13:00:57



Prize yet to be determined (probably some misc modern proof coins that have
been cluttering up my desk).  I will judge it - post your best coin-related
haiku here and win some free stuff.

For those of you who don't know what a haiku is, it's a Japanese poem
(non-rhyming) that consists of three lines.  Line 1 & 3 have five syllables
each and line 2 has 7 syllables.  For example:

Bashing Accugrade,
Al and Diane just don't know
how fun it can be

OK, that was not the greatest, but, hey - give it your best shot and win
some free junk.  Traditionally, Japanese haikus have some element of nature
in them, but there's no rule to that effect in this contest.  Must be
coin-related or RCC-related, though.  I will pick a winner sometime next
week (no promises as my schedule is really weird as of late).

Let's see your creative side, RCC'ers

Dave

1. )
Vatican Euros
Say "Cha-ching!" if you get them
sigh sadly if not

2.)
Pinkish Brillo-glow
Liberty cries on the cent
Dipped, abused, and scrubbed

3.)
Alan's coin orphans
Rescued from a life of toil
Retire in mylar

4.)
Silver Eagles with
Bigg Fredd's countertop rainbows
But will Euros tone?

5.)
1951-
D, Oh how you elude me
Yet common as dirt

6.)
Anaconda coin
How I wish to possess you
Time to rob a bank

7.)
I am bewildered
You're a 70 for sure
But I'm not Dave Hall

8.)
My husband's eyes glaze
Not with love for me, but with
Boredom at coin shows

9.)
Junk box full of hope
Varieties waiting for
me to retrieve them

10.)
Why oh Why did I
Not buy a buffalo buck
When they were released?

Hope you enjoy....guess I shouldn't quit my day job!

Chrysta

A buffalo made.
How many legs should it have?
Collectors say three.

It was a silver colour,

At 200 degrees for some time,

It's now ACG rainbow.

Many, many years ago in high school. Of course, my friends and I would try
to come up with *** ones. What else could you expect from ***age boys
in a Catholic all-boys school?
