Haiku Friday: Supergirl Goes Back to School

Haiku Friday

I'll miss Supergirl,
she gets a class tomorrow --
Take good care of her!

Trying not to show
how sad I am about it
for DuckyBoy's sake.

So far, he's OK,
one class he hopes she's not in:
a kid from the bus.

She's mouselike and caged;
my affection surprised me
for one such as this.

Supergirl is the Chinese Dwarf Hamster we've had for the summer from DuckyBoy's class last year.

We're planning to get one of her babies from last spring as our very own hamster to keep; but his school team and I have cooked up a plan for him to EARN the hammie with good behavior. I hope he earns it soon!

Would you like to haiku today? To participate in Haiku Friday, just follow these steps:

1. Write your own haiku on your blog. You can do one or many, all following a theme or just random. It or they can be part or all of your post, but your post must include a haiku. What's a haiku, you ask? Hint: 5-7-5. More info: Click here. Or here.

2. Sign the Mister Linky below with your name and the link to your haiku post (the specific post URL, not your main blog URL). DON'T sign unless you have a haiku this week. If you need help with this, please let me know.

3. Please leave a comment after linking, thanks! (Eventually the Mr Linky links go away, I think, so they only way we'll find you in the future is via your comment.)

4. Pick up a Haiku Friday button to display on the post or in your sidebar by clicking the button at the top of this post.

REMEMBER: Do not post your link unless you have a haiku this week! I will carry on the esteemed tradition of deleting any links without haiku!

"Supergirl" is kind of a fun name for a hamster. One wonders what she did to earn it...

Happy Friday!

Good question, Tink! Supergirl and her name deserve a post of their own!

I'll hold the good thought about Supergirl and DuckyBoy too ;--)
