Win a Copy of Zeitoun

Boing Boing is holding a poetry contest, the prize for which is a copy of Dave Eggers's Zeitoun. All you have to do is compose a haiku on why you deserve to win and enter it in the comments section of the post. The contest ends on Saturday, but there are already over 200 posts so get crackin'!

Some of my favorites so far:

#2
I choose to spend time
remembering what went wrong
to prevent repeat.

#156
Some books rot on shelves,
but were made for many reads.
We practice sharing

#224
I like Dave Eggers
Cute girls see this on my shelf
Everybody wins

(Kind of true, #224. Kind of true.)

Just to be clear -- you enter the contest over on BoingBoing, not here. :)
