Doting owner gives
his soul to Kitten, and so
Kitten gives him Mice!

I fear such an ink
would stiffen the nib too far
for flexing in use.

Combatant catfish?
Only if they are fighting!
*Respectant* catfish
(unless, of course, one
is the notorious Bay State Blue).

Sorry -- thats a tanka, not a haiku, but I had to expand the theme *just* a bit (tanka are similar to haiku, but slightly longer, and are 5-7-5-7-7).
This thread is being way too much fun :thumbup:
So:

Catfish is grinning:
It *knows* you want special ink.
Warden or Bernanke?
