The Japanese-inspired sedoka consists of 6 lines with a syllable count of 5-7-7/ 5-7-7, unrhymed. The first 3 lines speak of a situation/ scene. The last 3 lines depict a response/reaction with the poem leading to a unified, complete thought.

Good one to inform about what life can be like in a large city. It is sad that predators will take advantage of people in such situations. Congrats on your winner. Sara
