Ultra Haiku Fighter: Donkey Kong Country

Ultra Haiku Fighter

Are you a fan of extreme Japanese poetry and hardcore gaming? If so, you’ll love the latest feature to brawl its way into the What’s Your Tag? lineup; Ultra Haiku Fighter. Think you’re better at writing gaming Haiku’s than we are? Well come prove it. Today we tackle the mighty SNES classic Donkey Kong Country.

Editor’s Note: Ultra Haiku Fighter started off as a joke conversation between Mileson and AMGfail on Facebook and morphed into a full-fledged feature. The idea behind UHF is that the What’s Your Tag? bros will post a series of Haiku’s based on a specific game and you as the reader, will try and create Haiku’s even greater than ours and drop it in the comment section below. The supreme victory will be declared the most extreme poet in the universe, though we have no fair way to judge that. Let the Ultra Haiku Fighter battle begin!

mysterious caves
mine cart rides lead to quick death
a pit of bodies


Cranky is a pimp
turning tricks to pay the rent
get in the barrel

Alrighty XBROS, you’ve read what we’re throwing down, now it’s time for you to bring the thunder! Battle to raise your poetry meter and unleash your Ultra Haiku Combo! What Donkey Kong Country madness will your poetry skills unleash?
