Slutty witches, ghosts
and bats fly high at night on
sugar overload

By @janetjosselyn1

A voucher will be wending its way to her very shortly.

You can read all the great entries in the comments section below.


Halloween will soon be upon us so I think it’s high time for another competition.

Once again you need to utilise your rusty poetry skills because The Feckless Goblin wants you to produce a Halloween related haiku.

If you don’t know already, haiku is:

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

Now, we don’t want it to be too restrictive for those of you who aren’t poetry orientated, so let’s say your haiku  should have no more than three lines and 13 words AT MOST and should instill a sense of Halloween.

An old, not necessarily Halloween haiku example is:

Endless corridor
Dark scream spears heart
Follow blood trail

Think you can manage that my little Gobliners?

Write your haiku and put it in the comments section below. If you have trouble adding it,  send it to me @ziggykinsella and I’ll add it manually with your ID. We’ll allow one entry per person and the closing date is 31st October 2013.

As a shameless bit of marketing, and because you love The Goblin, once you’ve posted your haiku, please copy the link below and tweet it to your followers so we can get plenty of entries:

I’ve just entered @ziggykinsella’s £20 Halloween Haiku Competition at http://fecklessgoblin.blogspot.co.uk/2013/10/enter-feckless-goblin-halloween-haiku.html

The winner will be announced the day after Halloween and will receive a £20 or currency equivalent prize payable either as a voucher or via paypal.
