Yes, ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, cats and dogs, chickens and all other assorted flora and fauna, it's time for Knatolee's first (perhaps the only!) annual
HEN HAIKU CONTEST
There rules are simple: you must write a hen-related (and/or rooster-related) haiku in the traditional format of 5 syllables, followed by 7 syllables, followed by 5 syllables. The best Haiku will be chosen by my as-yet-to-be-selected expert committee, and the winner will receive a prize of an assortment of my chicken photo greeting cards. This contest is open to all citizens of the world who live in a place with mail delivery. Husbands of Knatolee are disqualified, as are chickens of Knatolee, but anyone else is eligible to enter. The deadline for this fabulous contest is midnight June 30th, and the winner will be announced July 1st, Canada Day! While Kate and Wills are cavorting in our nation's capital that day, one of you lucky haiku-savants will be celebrating in the glory of winning my first ever HEN HAIKU CONTEST!
To start you off, I present this exceedingly delicious haiku by the wondrous Jams at The Poor Mouth. Can you beat this? You'd better try, or Jams will be winning yet another prize:
Enter early, enter often. Good luck, people!
PS: Canada Post has just gone on strike. If they're still picketing July 1st, delivery of your prize may be delayed due to circumstances completely and utterly beyond my control!
