Personal Finance Haikus

by Mike

The other day my daughter brought home a book of poetry from her school library and it contained several haikus.  If you’ve never heard the term before, a haiku is a Japanese style of non-ryhmed poetry that has five syllables in the first line, seven in the second, and five again in the last line.

On a whim, I figured I’d take a shot at creating a few personal finance themed haikus.

Few beat the market.
Ride the rising tide as one.
Index funds are cool.

Fancy cars and home
But paying lots of interest.

Eating mac and cheese.

Noble Samurai
Selflessly helping others.
Long live Yakezie.

I probably shouldn’t quit my day job just yet, LOL.  Think you can do better?   Give it a try and see what you can come up with!

I love this so much I just may have to copy it and try my hand at personal finance haikus. Stay tuned.

In the meantime, here’s my favorite haiku (I didn’t write this and can’t take credit for it … though I don’t know who the author is):
