I'm a Wiener (Again!)

I'm a happy-dancing silly-sausage!
Jonathan Freitag over at the Palouse Wargaming Journal recently ran a competition to celebrate the 2nd anniversary of his blog. The prize up for grabs was a copy of Henry Hyde's Wargaming Compendium with the runners-up receiving a Kindle version of the compendium or a book on Naseby.

The Prize!

 The device he'd settled on was a Haiku competetion on two themes:

  1. What wargaming means to you; or
  2. Why you should have the Compendium
I was a late comer to the competition and dashed off a haiku on Option 2. I wasn't really expecting to win anything, but enjoyed the challenge and was impressed by everyone else's efforts. I was very surprised, then, to find that Jonathan had rated my entry highly enough to win the runner's up prize!

Here's my Prize-Winning Haiku:

A compendium
Is all I need to master
An elusive art.

Thanks again, Jonathan, and Happy 2nd Blog Anniversary. Here's to many more!
