Written for Round 1: Pets gone bad
MINNIE - MY SIAMESE CAT - A SEDOKA
You screwed up the wool,
Then went and spilt all my milk
And chewed up my lovely shoes;
Now there I put thee,
All dressed, brushed, stuffed up and trussed,
My Siamese show-piece cat!
A sedoka is a two-stanza poem in which each stanza is complete by itself. Also, the syllable scheme must be 5-7-7 in each stanza.
