                                                      a clock is ticking
                                            as a mouse climbs up the chain
                                                 at one the mouse falls

    A haiku that captures the essence of the nursery rhyme...good work.

    I was having fun with this one. Thought it might catch a few off guard with an almost forgotten nursery rhyme. Hope you found it a bit of fun. Thanks for your kind review.

    To me this was my little joke and a bit of fun. In the true sense of Haiku this is not a proper Haiku but like a bad child I couldn't resist. With many it will be like a light going on either at the end of reading this or a bit after.Thanks for the kind review.
