Hump Day Haiku

I'm gonna lay verse
But I'm not a poet.
Wait, maybe I am!
And I didn't even know it.

So in all seriousness, I'm going to try something out. Maybe I'll finally have something I can keep up with. I'm going to make a good faith effort to have a new haiku for you every Mittwoch. Sounds easy in theory, but like I said...I'm not a poet. However, this is also an attempt to draw a bit more on my right brain. As a rather analytica right-hander, I often force myself to do things opposite, whehter it be skating switch or learning the Arabic alphabet left-handed (which, by the way, is actually a bit easier since it's written and read right-left). We'll see how this foray turns out.

As for the actual haiku itself, some purists might cry foul. I'll do my best to follow the standard 5-7-5 three line format. But, the subject matter might leave some crying foul. Sorry. After all, this blog is about money, not haiku. Poetic license allows me the deviation. So without further ado, the first creation.

The Grind
Lots of bills are due,
Stressed from working all the time.
Short check on payday
