Ripe red cherries fly
With gentle loving care flung
To murder hundreds

Talons tear in flesh
Running prey is easy game
The condor will feast

The game was completed 8 years ago and we get a free expansion every year.

Arranging holidays in an embrace with the Starsector is priceless.

Twice as wide as long
Gunship makes the point too late
To the wolf at his heels

No sound inside
Gentle rain tickling a window
F*cking Paragons

Hear the words I sing,
War's a horrid thing,
So I sing sing sing...
...ding-a-ling-a-ling.

Five, seven, five syllables
Haikus are easy

From an age long past
Bringing an onslaught of fire
The brown mountain reigns

We are doing Haiku (a type of poetry)! http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Haiku
We're doing the 17 syllable English version (5-7-5 pattern).

The dashing hunter
Loyal greyhound by her side
Tempest in the wind

Alas, Mjolnir
With but three double broadsides
"WTF max flux?"

Predator or Prey
"All ships are expendable"
Helm, engage Burn Drive!

My butterfingers
Always pressing V not F
A fatal mistake

With roaring thunder
Twenty-one guns herald
The Conquest's coming

Capital shields down
Cyclone Reaper linked fire
For massive damage

SDF's Onslaught
Diversion for its two friends
"Why can't I read your MIND?!"

Your hair is winter fire
January embers
My heart burns there, too
