Banking On Money Poems (Limerick and Haiku Prompt)

Today’s limerick and haiku theme is money. First, my limerick:

I once balanced my checkbook with ease.
But, alas, it’s no longer a breeze.
Where is each canceled check?
Banking statements are dreck.
Are they trying to hide all those fees?

And now my haiku:

“People want change,”
Claim presidential candidates.
I’d prefer twenties.

Your assignment, should you choose to accept it, is to write a limerick or haiku (or both) about money. When you’ve posted your verse, please return here and add a direct link to your themed poetry.

(If you need some tips on limerick or haiku writing, I link to some helpful sites here.)

    I’m looking forward to reading your take on my prompts, Sister AE and Paisley.

    As for email prompt reminders, if there’s enough interest in them, I’d be happy to create an email list for my prompts. So anyone who wants such a reminder, please let me know in a comment to this post. If I get, say, ten such requests. I’ll create an emailing list. Thanks!

    Thanks to the few of you who have joined in on the fun. But I’m beginning to wonder if it makes sense to continue these prompts, with so few people participating.

    I’m not sure what the problem is. Lack of publicity? The themes? The difficulty in writing limericks? If anyone has any suggestions as to how to widen the appeal of these prompts, I’d appreciate it. Thanks!

    That was a great limerick and haiku!!
    But a haiku has 7 syllables in the second line not 8.
