Nothing says love like a haiku contest

William Shakespeare once wrote, “Love comforteth like sunshine after rain.”

Screw that, we’re giving away chocolate instead.

As we do every once in a while here at Vox, we’re having a haiku contest for our readers.

You know the drill: submit your love-themed haiku in the comments below and we’ll pick our favorites to receive a box of chocolate for either themselves or their significant other (because nothing says true love like regifted chocolate).

To get things started, here’s an example:

True love is precious

But chocolate is better

Enter our contest

    In my pants, girl, please
    This is my last chance, girl, please
    Ain’t got no herpes.

    Let’s just fuck instead.

    Dinner is for Schmucks.
    Instead, here’s something to suck.
    Or we can just fuck.

    St. V would be proud!

    smile through them when she smiles through
    them lightly at me.

    lash out, sage, combat thine foes
    zealot, cause unknown

    I’d do anything for you
    but fisting is weird

    the one that regards fisting
    that one should have won
