    Decided to go with a tongue-in-cheek approach and, for the sake of abiding to the 5-7-5 syllable scheme, rely on nuance to get the joke across. In case some clarification is needed, the first two lines are obvious nods towards the upgradability of the enhanced bodies. The last line is just a jab at the community and their insatiable requests for cheaper items / more GP / sell-back system. The title is aptly named, as it is a variation of the first draft I came up with. The only difference is the last line ended with "Ask not for receipts."

    Happy Valentine's Day, all! <3

    "Not So Complex" v2.0

    If I gave my heart,
    would you still upgrade farther?
    All sales are final.

    Death fears you and me
    Two drops of blood and wine
    We always are unite

    The idea here is regarding two things-soul and body as a theme for ghost in the shell,what is true and what is not...and when one's a man,and not an hollow shell,and also for that special lad or lass that will always stand besides you...Let them try,if you have one by your side,you are immortal..you never fight alone...If only I had one too....

    ...sigh,I told myself not to get emotional,dammit,now I have to go fight a bear or something

    Inspired by that one GiTS SAC episode, you all know the one.

    Some roses are red,
    I'd like The Major in bed.
    Can cyborgs have sex?

    ''One Bomb for Her Heart
    Oh My Sweetest Explosions
    Like a Thousand Suns''

    Well, that site which counts syllabs for each word says 5-7-5 so I guess it's 5-7-5.
    Anyway... I bombed so many Motoko's (One of the most used character in game) for the event so I dedicated this haiku to my latest events for gun skin :) 'EXPLOSION!' 'BAKUHATSU!'

    "Three crimson eyed men
    Fading in a ball of fire
    The great grace of death"

    An ode to the Crimson Skies namecard.

    Roses are red,
    Violets are blue,
    Your friend is dead,
    And soon you'll be to

    Hey all! Time for my submission for the contest, as well as a couple others for fun!

    Motoko is pure//
    Do not touch her she is mine//
    I claim her okay//

    Now for the fun ones:

    Ishikawa sees //
    a TDM where he loses //
    Says, "Yeah, Excellent!" //

    Togusa is scared //
    "Don't tell my wife about this" //
    Lewd Seeker Drone lovin' //

    Maven is a witch//
    Literally the worst//
    Delet Maven Pls//

    Saito is angry//
    He can see everything but//
    Motoko's THICC butt//

    Borma is special //
    Uses Nano-gel always //
    Like an Ointment //

    I might post some more for the other Operatives, but for now just enjoy these!
