The Great Christmas Horror Haiku Competition

It’s nearly Christmas and time for the old competition to raise its ugly, malformed head.

For your Christmas challenge this year you’ll need to produce a bit of Haiku for the Feckless Goblin.

If you don’t know already, Haiku is:

A Japanese lyric verse form having three unrhymed lines of five, seven, and five syllables.

Now, I don’t want to be too difficult since some of you may already have had a few snorters to get into the Christmas spirit, so let’s say your little poem should have no more than three lines and 13 words AT MOST and should instill a horror emotion such as fear, terror or despair.

For example:

Endless corridor
Dark scream spears heart
Follow blood trail

Okay, what are you waiting for? As usual, post your entries in the comments section below. You can have as many goes as you like. The prize is a £20 Amazon voucher (or monetary equivalent to your country) to the winner.

Closing date is Christmas Day.
