However, kind Moo,
It seems something is amiss!
Nine syllables, yes?

It's the second line,
That one is much too lengthy.
Better luck next time!

The first one is about a cat, I know it isn't very obvious...

he wanders around
assured of his dominance
waiting to be fed

he was never lost
only on a small detour
along roads unkown

waiting for the end
trying not to fall asleep
he endures the class

always lost in thought
his mind can't seem to be found
when asked a question

he plays with the words
trying to make it all fit
in just three short lines

there she goes again
trying to hide what she means
just tell me i'm wrong

That verse is not in
iambic pentameter
at all. Wrong meter.

Actually, the phrase
"iambic pentameter"
is dactylic. :(

(Read emoticons
as being one syllable
in length, so it works.)

You may only post
in a series of haikus
or else, I tell you!

Your post must contain
a line of five, then seven,
then five at the end.
