What is tsundoku? Dare we guess?
I’m not too sure, I must confess.
We may surmise what it may be.
Perhaps a sushi canapé?
A puzzle type or summer storm?
A Japanese poetic form?
A kimono sash or even, maybe,
a plush Godzilla made for baby?
All this time in speculation
has given rise to consternation.
It’s clear that since I have no clue,
I must find something else to do.
And so I’m driven to express
there is a truth I must address.
What, in the end, tsundoku is,
is just an irritating quiz.
If you don’t know, what good’s expressing
all this speculative guessing?
Such stressful thoughts may lead to cancer.
Use Merriam Webster for the answer!
