The Sims Community Blog: Sim Haikus




A house without doors
A pool without ladders, too
You’re sure inventive

Haikus are one of the shortest types of poetry: just three lines of following a 5/7/5 syllable rule. While that doesn’t seem like a ton of space to tell a story, the joy of poetry is finding creative ways to express an enormous amount of thought in a condensed space. And when it comes to creativity, there are few gamers out there as imaginative as The Sims fans.

It’s no wonder that when we asked our community to come up with Haikus about The Sims, the results were nothing short of magical. Magical, and a little weird. We’ve gathered some of the ones we like the best and brought them all into one place. And since they didn’t have names, we went ahead and named them for you!

To be relaxed and play, to
Be lost in the game
