Fry me a fish ( a Senryū)


Get the shield ready!

Careful; sizzle, hiss, pop, pop!

Fry fish, not your skin!


I love fried fish. But I hate frying fish!

This Haiku tells of many young girls’ war in the kitchen, learning how to fry food in hot oil, I would arm myself with a kuali’s cover to avoid the crackling oil!
