Taxiball: New price = a haiku!

We're having a contest!

Write a haiku about why Taxiball's awesome, and you can win a promo code for the game AND get your haiku featured (with appropriate credit, of course!) in our App Store text!

"But how can I write about Taxiball if I'm trying to compete for a free code? I OBVIOUSLY don't have the game! Duh!"

That's why we have (and have always had!) a free version of the game! Grab Taxiball Free and write up your thoughts! The haiku we think does the best job of grabbing someone's attention (or maybe just the one we like the best) wins!

If you've already got the game, and have an awesome haiku in mind, please feel free to participate as well! You can give the code to a friend, or write it down on a piece of paper and eat it, use it as a secret code for your Swiss bank accounts... whatever you like!

Just leave a the haiku as a comment in THIS POST by the end of the week, and you'll be eligible to participate!

Good luck!
This post had a lot of exclamation points!
seppo!

Ball rolls, taxi comes
People have places to go
Let me find the way

Ball scurrying about
fast like a bolt from the blue
Zap! Now, there you go!

Taxiball Hiku

Places I need to be
Taxiball will take me swift
Safely, smoothly go!

I'm waiting for: Shadowrun Returns, Micromon, Oceanhorn!

Customer, fear not
Somehow you cannot roll off
Not magic; epic

Not your average ball
Rolls around in happiness
Not just a taxi

Do I get extra credit for this attempt as well

ないあなたの平均
球ロールスロイス幸福で
ちょうどタクシー
