Thanks to everyone who submitted an entry for Haiku Challenge 2010! I had a lot of fun and chuckles reading through them. With no further delay...
The Winner receiving the "Sonic Special" graduate student survival kit is Courtney:
My nose senses fear:
The dreaded paper monster
is on the rampage.
And the Honorable Mention, from Elizabeth:
Thirty six papers
Number of footnotes: zero
A day in the life.
Yes, paper-themed haikus won the day here at Chicken Soup for my Grad Student Soul, and speaking of which, I hope this little exercise gave you relief from some, whether you're writing, grading, or both.
