Part of the beauty of a Haiku is that you ARE limited in how many phonetic sounds you can work with.
With something like free verse, or a less limiting form of poetry, you can attack an idea from many angles or use lots of words to describe it. With a Haiku, you have this limited structured space to fit in your idea. A good poet will make that small space count.
I've been doing the Borderlands 2 Loot Hunt, but most of the weapons have been crap. To be fair, I'm only level 33 on the character I'm playing as right now, but as I understand it, once you encounter a boss/big bad, they're kind of locked in at whatever level they were when you first encountered them? So the targets have been from early in the game, and the weapons they're dropping, even the legendaries, are crap for damage. I'm keeping them anyway, though, just in case.
I get it. Haiku is a game.
