Poem of the day: Puppy

Jueju of the day: Puppy


I smashed his two small eggs

He cried moaned screamed and squirmed

How come he came twice then

The big dog humped my leg



Jueju (simplified Chinese: 绝句; traditional Chinese: 絕句; pinyin: juéjù), or Chinese quatrain, is a type of jintishi ("modern form poetry") that grew popular among Chinese poets in the Tang Dynasty (618–907), although traceable to earlier origins. Jueju poems are always quatrains; or, more specifically, a matched pair of couplets, with each line consisting of five or seven syllables.
