Do you like hedgehogs? I love hedgehogs so much that when I was a kid I invented an imaginary family of hedgehogs that lived in my back garden in my family home in Barking (an East London borough).
So when Theodore Ashford asked on Facebook for a subject to write a haiku on I chose the hedgehog. Here is the awesome result (and look forward to a new book of haiku coming soon from Theo.)
By Theodore Ashford
Here’s a true hero–
The hedgehog keeps himself safe
But still remains cute
