    Today I remembered that there were Haikus in this very forum in the beginning of time, namely a few months after launch when there was still the old forum, which was kinda forum+bugtracker combined if I remember right.
    Some dude even set up a Tumblr and it was the first hit on googling Dredmor+Haiku! Who would have thought that?

    Now, a fresh one to get you started...

    Krong the almighty
    Blessings and curses you give
    to Maslech your son

    Now, get creative :)

    Here's one from me, though the quality of it is likely low (because it's one day before I get my precious time off, and thus I am very lazy today).

    Testing skill trees
    Eyebrowed one dies without warning
    Working as intended

    The diggles they dance
    Around your grey effigy
    Woe befall them soon

    Not one survivor
    Of this monstrous zoo remains
    Reward: A gnarled club.

    Hidden in dungeon
    Sleeps a rare, wondrous diggle
    Safe from human blades.

    Walking on Floor 9
    Suddenly the ground explodes
    I am furious.

    (I suck at poetry.)

    A sense of humor in a
    Roguelike? Blasphemy!

    Walking through dungeons
    Suddenly it collapses
    What did Essence do?

    Vegan Vampire players
    exist? Seems legit.

    Use an item, blink.
    Crash to desktop; what the fuck?
    Ah, FaxPax is on.

    Load a mod, it crashed
    To XML: Who made this?
    Oh, ok, it was Fax.

    Insanity room;
    Why is everything crazy?
    It must be Beeeeerrrrrggggstrrroooooooom!

    Hundred pages of mod.
    Wait, this is only one skill?
    Damnit, Ruigi.

    It's really that bad?

    could be caused by Fax.

    Furious Dredmor
    Felled by sawblades aplenty
    Why did I need skills?

    Deadly I.E.D's,
    Plastic bolts, killer robots!?
    Built by bastard dwarves.
