Want to win a free Gibson SG courtesey of Wilco?. We at Baeble think The poet inside you all Will love this contest. Jeff Tweedy wants your best Wilco-themed Haiku. What is a Haiku, you ask? Wikipedia?
"A form of Japanese poetry, consisting of 17 moras (or on), in three metrical phrases of 5, 7, and 5 moras respectively."
Doesn't sound too hard! From the Wilco site:
To enter the contest, write a Wilco-themed Haiku and submit it either via Twitter and include the tag #wilcohaiku in your tweet or email it to us at haiku@wilcoworld.net. The Grand Prize is a Gibson SG (courtesy of our friends at Gibson) signed by the whole band. Three First Place winners will receive a set of the WILCO UniPo figures, plus the Limited Edition Wilco 6-incher UniPo. Five Second Place winners will receive a copy of WILCO (the album) on vinyl in a Wilco tote.
EXAMPLES: Some of my favorites I've seen so far: Wilco makes me want / a heavy metal drummer / but moreso summer fighting for normal/an aural refuge from the/anger in drunk eyes Battle of the bands/Too shy to lift up my shirt;Maybe next summer (Pardon me Major LOL, we're under LAFFtack.) these are mine: with the sky blue sky/one wing will never fly, dear/dixie cup drinker wilco (the bandmates)/make their lyrics by throwing/darts at a word board Go have fun!
