Haiku for the Times

Receding wealth...
barely employed slacker days,
ever persevering.

Recession, crisis—
deny to identify.
Love: ever hopeful.

Vocabulary:
crisis, afford, debt, casualty;
words not for my lips.

Bailout bombout.
Printing billions of dollars
'til there's no more ink.

Today's sad headline:
Fishermen Lost Hope to Sea;
One Survivor Didn't.


Spring, how I love thee!
Crocuses, tulips, blossoms all—
June: currency for my heart.
