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! Follow #wilcohaiku on Twitter for more details/submissions and make your own! Deadline for submissions is Friday, November 27th.Wilco (The Album) is out and its kid-tested, mother-approved. -joe puglisi
