Original post follows.

Portland-by-way-of-Alaska's Portugal. the Man is playing the Pageant this Sunday, and we've got an extra pair of tickets to give away -- contest time!

Inspired by Haiku Lou, St. Louis's best music website to waste time at on the company dime -- er, I mean, that isn't what I was doing when this came up, whoops -- this contest will challenge entrants to try their hand at the ancient Japanese linguistic art form. Click through for details on how to win:

To get the tickets, post in the comments below in haiku form -- that's five syllables, then seven, then five again -- explaining why it is that you think you deserve to win. If you need more clarification on the format, feel free to peruse the aforementioned Haiku Lou site for hundreds of examples. Also make sure you include a way for us to get ahold of you, in addition to your submission. We will pick a winner at 9:00 A.M. on Thursday.

Tickets can be yours
You must simply use your mind
Crush your opponents

Ryan Wasoba, describing the band in this week's print edition, says:

Portugal. the Man gravitates toward dank psychedelic pop jams and its members have hair both long and unwashed enough to make Fleet Foxes look trim. Yet beneath this hippy exterior the band's story reads like a classic tale of punk-rock triumph. The obstacles were daunting, its members having hailed from the inconvenient state of Alaska and its name plagued with an unnecessary period, but the band honed its craft through constant album cycles and grew its fan base one show at a time alongside similar indie rock oddballs like RX Bandits, Minus the Bear and Maps & Atlases. Now Portugal, the Man tackles St. Louis's largest practical venue as a headliner.

Argh, I'm an idiot. I need an edit. Please place an all important period/dot/full-stop/ after Portugal. if only mentally.

And if we are allowed more than one entry-the directions did not specify-here is another:
