Kim, You really saw this! That must have been something. I will give you the "rawed". I take poetic license to the extreme. Great haiku!

I think you envisioned that Tiger doing 'The Shimmy!' Wasn't that a dance craze right between 'the Frug' and the 'Freddy?'.... Oh, no, no, no. I remember now: Shimmy-shimmy coco-bop; shimmy-shimmy bop. Hey! ... Now THAT was a song, not a dance. But it was earlier than the Frug too. ~ Dated and Reeling, Gershon

Ooh, I love this haiku tribute to my fave animal! Going in my faves! Love the Kimvention of "Rawred". At my zoo there is a display for kids to press buttons and hear the different sounds tigers make to communicate. I shall have to write to them to include "rawr". Hugs ~ John
