AND THE WINNER IS: Finally got round to judging the competition – the winner is Melissa Yuan-Innes for all her entries.

We haven’t done one for a while, so here’s the Feckless Goblin Christmas Haiku Competiton. There’s a £25 voucher up for grabs and it’s free to enter. All you need to do is click on one of social sharing buttons on this page and spread the word to your followers.

What is a Haiku?

You can see some examples of the haikus the great British public did here.

Basically it’s three lines of Japanese poetry. You have seventeen syllables, comprised of five in the first, seven in the second and five in the last. We’re not going to be too hard on you so if you throw in an extra syllable here or there it doesn’t matter.

What’s the Subject?

Seeing as we’ve had such a weird 2016, what with Brexit and the Trump thing, we’re asking you to write about that. Whether you’re positive about the future or negative or just don’t give a monkey’s, let us have your best poetic efforts.

What’s the Prize?

You’ll get a £25 voucher (or your demonination equivalent) paid in any way you like, as long as we can send it to you.

How Do You Enter?

Simply post your haiku in the comments section below along with your social media tag so we can contact you if you win. There’s no cost to enter but if you could click on one of the social media buttons and spread the word, we’d be grateful. You can also enter as many times as you like up to a maximum of three attempts.

The haiku competition runs until the end of December and the winner will be announced in the first week of January.
