    This made me smile! I do believe we would call this a senryu! Because it's about human beings and is a bit wry and humorous. Both haiku & senryu do not use capital letters or punctuation, also they do not have titles [the first line may be put in the space provided for a title on the soup poem entry form] EXCELLENT senryu...if you could spare a limerick for my animal limerick contests for children it would be a big help! I only need 2 more! phew! Light & Love

    I am not familiar with this expression but I do like cashews (that is the edible type). the second line should be 7 syllables. love mom
