The Ironic Catholic's 2008 Poetry Contest

I've entered with a handful of Haiku, because they are easy to come up with and require almost no innate talent. First, my entries for the Serious Haiku category:

Crucified for me
Although my heart is like stone;
This is Love.

Jesus lifted up,
Broken, bleeding on the cross.
My Lord and my God!

Blessed Sacrament--
I avert my eyes in shame.
Have mercy!

Then these two for the Funny Haiku category:

Here I am again.
Why do confessionals not
Have revolving doors?

Love my enemies,
Pray for my persecutors.
All but her.

I may now wear this badge with pride:

Enter your own poetry here.
