PLEASE READ COMPLETELY BEFORE ENTERING YOUR WORK.

Basically, write a satirical poem using the poetry form of a haiku.

Satirical may be anything insulting, or vulgar or... just plain nasty.
Haiku, however, should be beautifully written, and should use imagery.

This shall be a feat: create a satirical haiku. A piece that shows malice and hate and insult, but also some sort of divine essence.

To help you out...

SATIRE is a literary genre, chiefly literary and dramatic, in which human or individual vices, follies, abuses, or shortcomings are held up to censure by means of ridicule, derision, burlesque, irony, or other methods. Although it is usually meant to be humorous, the purpose of satire is not primarily humor but criticism of an event, an individual or a group in a witty manner. --Wikipedia

I think you all know what HAIKU is. Just follow the traditional format: 5-7-5.
