Another exercise from my creative writing class. To write a tanka, a Japanese poem that contains five lines with thirty one syllables in total, five in line one, seven in line two, five in the third line and seven syllables in both lines four and five. Here is mine.
I’ll drive to Bury
With my daughter tomorrow
To follow our boys
With three thousand fellow fans.
Just win. Win ugly. Three points.
