video game haiku from the resigned gamer

Resigned Gamer has recently discovered a deep passion for haiku, so without further ado, we present to you, our first installment:

circulation is

down because our employees
can't stop getting killed


wish I could work in
the coal mine this is the worst
summer job ever


I'm just trying to
pay for college man i don't
fucking deserve this

Contra #2:

I thought you were my
friend but you always take the
red spread gun- that's cold.

From Reddit comments:

Sonic the Hedgehog,

Get the chaos emeralds,

Or Robotnik wins. - Dreamlax


don't feel like saving
the princess going home with
luigi instead

bubble bobble:

what the fuck is this
bubbles can't kill anyone
oh wait this is hard

ice hockey:

four skinnies is a
recipe for disaster
and fats are too slow - Milkk

And Ourobosity writes:

Oof. Those are some god-awful haikus.

Breaking sentences

Into their separate parts

Does not make haikus

That Contra one in the first comment is excellent though.
