Haiku? What Does it Mean?

by badumba

MYSTERY ISLAND - "What in the…" said my pet, Diana85_2000, " all we got is this after traveling a long way here?" After saying that she stormed off. This is what she just had read:

Today's Neopian haiku is:

Scorchio jumps house
necessitates, tortuous
purchases, near Bruce.

Contemplate this, and return
tomorrow for another Neopian haiku.

Diana85_2000 is my only Neopet thus she is a little spoilt as I always give her what she wants but this time I felt that she was right to get mad. When we heard the there is a new addition to Mystery Island, both of us was so excited and early the next day we woke up and headed there.

"I wonder what is there? If it is a new shop, can you buy me something memorable there, please mummy?" Diana85_2000 exclaimed. She climbed the tall chair at the mini bar in the kitchen where I laid her breakfast.

"OK I will buy you something but you have to behave when you are outside, understand? I don't want you running around and yelling about. I want you to behave like a grown-up Usul." I said before I put her breakfast, by the way it was a plain fearie cake, in front of her, " You are already two years old. Don't act so childish. Eat the cake then we shall go to Mystery Island. OK?"

With that, Diana85_2000 quickly ate her breakfast and off we went.

As soon as we reached Mystery Island, we saw a long queue. Diana85_2000 quickly asked around and found out that the queue was for the new 'shop' so she quickly ran to the end of the queue to line up while I spotted my friend tears_gal walking together with her pet, starbaby580, and we started talking.

We soon lost track of time as we talk until starbaby580 said she is hungry so we bade goodbye. It was then I remembered that Diana85_2000 was lining up and waiting for me to join her.

When I found her she was still in a happy mood, which was unlikely of her. We waited for about three hours before the queue started moving and boy was she excited. "If they sell food, I will get mummy to buy for me a very rare one and if they sell toys, I will get mummy to buy me the best doll available there and if they sell…" she muttered to herself as we stood there.

Soon we reach the doorstep of Haiku Generator, which we have learnt. It was a house made of straws. But we those who enter came out another way so we could not ask them what was it all about.

There we were given that poem or whatever and ask us to contemplate it. Diana85_2000 was so mad that it took me days before I could cool her down. What in the world is a haiku and what does it do or is it something we have to solve? Why didn't they give us a clue?

Only time would tell...
