The Dog House
Caught, he lied to her;
His ebullient smile said all,
On the couch he sleeps.

Pomeranian Homesick Blues

                                        the wants of the few
                                        slap the needs of the many-
                                        isn't that a bitch

                                        (Written:  10/23/17)

   (If you consider "isn't" to be just one syllable, this is a non-standard 5-7-4 Senryu.  People still disagree on whether it's 1 or 2.)
