It is my understanding that crappy poetry is a LiveJournal mainstay. I hereby present my own:
Of plainness, then?
To win the crown:
I've always considered the acrostic a bit of a specialty of mine. I'm not much of a poet, but I'm fairly good at improvising short themed works. The acrostic of 'acrostic' above was written by myself inside of five minutes as a demonstration of its definition. What follows is a haiku I wrote inside of two minutes or so when I saw a series of haiku by another author on the topic of Guilty Gear series characters. I rather like this one, and I've used it as my forums signature ever since:
(dedicated to Millia Rage)
Darkness lessons learned
Avenging golden tresses
Yellow flower blooms
It was a mere coincidence, noticed after I'd written and published it, that it also is an acrostic.
