The winners of the Homecoming haiku contest
We learned two things about Vox readers this weekend: They have a knack for Japanese poetry, and they really, really like free stuff. Although it was hard to choose, here are our five favorite Homecoming-themed haikus.
“BS” impressed us with his vocabulary:
Football team? lolskies.
Wake me when it’s basketball
I’ll don blue and grey
“Meredith” appealed to our empathetic side:
Homecoming, not I
The library calls my name
Think twice re: law school
The poets snagged themselves tickets to see an advance screening of Freakonomics, a film co-directed by Georgetown alum Heidi Ewing (SFS ’00), tonight at the E Street Cinema at 7 p.m. See the rest of the winners after the jump.
“Dave” added a wrinkle to town-gown relations:
For a change of pace
The alumni, not students
Disturb the neighbors
“Anonymous” made an apt comparison:
Too many untags.
A lot like Georgetown Day, just
less grass; more asphalt.
And finally, “Eileen” has a good reason to dislike the ’80s:
The ’80s band plays
Wish my name were not Eileen
I need to drink more.
