This is not common practice for me, but I have been drawn out of my poetry-opaque shell. You see, John Scalzi is currently running a contest the winner of which will be Tuckerized in his next book. The challenge:
For the contest, write a haiku from the point of view of some who is either about to die or has just died, from one (or more!) of the following:
1. A spider monkey or monkeys;
3. Poor GPS directions
4. And, of course, Spontaneous Human Combustion.
The most popular choice appears to be a death that combines all of these elements, but I chose to focus on just one. You can see my contribution in the comments at #16.
