I've written a few silly things. One was a Trek short story that 
appeared in *jatmey*, and one I've put on the Web:

A third came about one {qep'a'} when we had one of our {qaDHommey}, 
where you open an envelope, find a phrase, and have to give a speech 
about it in Klingon. Seqram joked that if we wanted to go all out we 
could even write a poem in iambic pentameter with the phrase as the 
acrostic. I, being a wiseguy, did exactly that while everyone else was 
giving their speeches. I've still got the poem around somewhere; I 
should put it on my website.

And, of course, Captain Krankor has written {taHjaj wo'} and {'Iv maH}.
