Trick or Treat

Trick or Treat
I ate some sweets
Treat or Trick
They made me sick.

Hairy Monster

The monster was hairy
Me, he would bury.
He said, "I'm not scary."
But still I was wary.

A One Act Play As a Series of Senryu

Sleeping in today
Wish my cat would let me be
It is too early

Wake up my human
Now it is time to feed me
You must stop sleeping

Go away, Oly
I am still trying to sleep
It is Saturday

(Purring, Kneading, Stop!
Dozing, Napping, Purring, Stop!
"Nice Kitty" Attack!)

Ouch! That was not nice
Get out of my bed right now
You are a bad cat!

I just wanted food.
I hate Saturdays, now I'm
outside in the rain.

Peacock -- a cinquain

Colorful, proud
Hopping, preening, strutting
Display your beautiful plumage
