Odo's Rat Haiku

What is Haiku?

From high curtain's top
I can see all of my world.
So close to the sky.
That tissue is mine.
You dropped it there, uncaring.
It is my treasure.
My Mummy wears tights.
When I jump on her and climb
Still she gives me treats.
When you are busy
I want you to play with me.
Love a little Rat.

Haiku is a style of Japanese poetry.

It traditionally consists of exactly seventeen syllables and these are conventionally grouped into three lines of five, seven and five syllables.

Odo was inspired to poetry after seeing the poems of Horace the Rat. However Odo has decided to stick to Haiku, rather than Horace's more extensive repertoire.
