Poetic justice: Vote for your favorite Econ Haiku of the week

It’s been that kind of a week. The Dow’s stuck. The Dreamliner’s delayed. Gotta laugh. So join in where I put the “dog” in doggerel and vote for your favorite Econ Haiku. Or write your own in the comments section.

What’s your favorite haiku?(polls)

The contenders:

Monday:

A snapshot of change

Kodak will kill Kodachrome

Paul Simon still lives

Tuesday:

Another delay

Maybe Boeing would let us

Just sit in the plane

Wednesday:

Stimulus package

Arrives in container ship

Port cities can thrive

Thursday:

A wing and a prayer

Just make sure they attach well

When building your Dream

Friday:

Will you drink more green?

Starbucks is counting on it

What a daily grind
