How about Welsh Triads at ten paces?

Write a triad in the form of the Welsh triads, on any medieval or SCA
topic. Anyone who wishe to open a parallel discussion of what makes a
"good triad" in terms of period welsh poetics is welcome to do so.

Here's one I wrote some time back.

	Respect of the Art
	Respect of the Audience
	Respect of the Crown
