Listen for this word!

I assume the answer is:

Haiku

Since:

The word has a "high" sound at the start, and a "cue" at the end.

The riddle itself is presented in Haiku form (a total of 17 syllables with phrases of 5, 7, 5 syllables for each line).

    $\begingroup$ Do people really pronounce the second syllable as "kyoo"? I have only ever heard (and said) "koo". $\endgroup$ – Hellion Nov 2 '17 at 14:19

    $\begingroup$ @Hellion I don't think anybody does, but it sounds similar enough for it to work. $\endgroup$ – Ambo100 Nov 2 '17 at 14:29
