Stock Market Haiku

The storm is here!!

Is the storm here?!

Over the last few days, we’ve all seen the stock market crash. Following that, there have been a plethora of articles that have come out regarding what to do, what to buy, how to adjust, etc… This is not one of those articles. Inspired by all those articles, the talking heads on tv, and boredom at the office, Mrs. SSC and I have been having an impromptu haiku contest related to the stock market performance. 🙂

Here are some of our back and forth haiku below:

Be a young willow
Bend in the downturn breezes
Stay strong, be patient

No selling when low
Stay the course for tomorrow
Until then, just be

Goodbye ER plans
Stocks, why did you fail me so
I sit at my desk

The sky is falling
Hope is lost! Dreams crashed! Sell! Sell!
We are doomed! Doomed! DOOOOOMED!

We now return you to your original programming, please enjoy the rest of your day.

If you would like to add a haiku of your own in the comments, please do! I’d love to hear some other peoples haiku, just remember 5-7-5 for structure. 🙂

    Not an investor
    Still in debt-repayment mode
    Not feeling this crash

    There! I sympathize with everyone who is feeling this downturn even though I’m not feeling the stress myself. When the market turns around, you’ll have to write limericks : )

      Haha, love it! We had a snafu with our investment purchase a few weeks ago, and so now we had a lot of $$ sitting there waiting to get invested. We got a better deal yesterday than we would have 3 weeks ago. Yeah snafu!! 🙂
