The Current Economic Climate, in Haiku

The interest rate

Sprouts from a baby acorn

To a mighty oak. 

Global supply chains,

Like dammed rivers halted by

Furious beavers.

A new moon each month

Quietly quitting the sky

Like millennials. 

The bond market’s in

Utter shambles— So too our 

Bond with mother earth.

Mountain bluebirds and

Elon Musk seize attention

With the same call: Tweet.

Your 401K?

Closer to 0K. Gone.

A fading sunset.

Inflation affects

Everything. This haiku now has

Eighteen syllables.
