    Cat
    I hear you saying,
    "It's time to feed the kitty."
    My favorite words.

    Dog
    Sniffed many behinds,
    In my walk through the green park
    Show love, kiss your face.

    LLG, this is for you:

    Haiku (俳句, haikai verse?) [​IMG] listen (help·info), plural haiku, is a form of Japanese poetry, consisting of 17 Japanese on (a phonetic unit identical to the mora), in three metrical phrases of 5, 7, and 5 on respectively[1], and typically containing a kigo, or seasonal reference. In Japanese, haiku are traditionally printed in a single vertical line, while haiku in English usually appear in three lines, to equate to the Japanese haiku's three metrical phrases[2]. Previously called hokku, it was given its current name by the Japanese writer Masaoka Shiki at the end of the 19th century.


    (BTW, I realize you were being sarcastic so I thought I'd return the favor.)

    And you as well. I hope your Steelers can pick up the slack from my Patriots. 11-5 and watching the playoffs from home is tough. Cassell going to the Jets (maybe) is even tougher.
